Ok so the only thing I've managed to get done is I have one pillar wrapped a ready to start glassing in the morning. It's been raining almost all week and haven't been able to get anything really cut. Plus I've had another little project to work on

A small little enclosure for my xcon 10.



Here is the first pillar

And here it is wrapped and ready for resin. I'm aware of the wrinkle in the bottom. I will get that smoothed out soon enough. This is my first time so I still think the first wrap came out very good. Took me about 2 hours to get the first done. Hopefully the next one is easier.

Ok I'm finally getting this completed. Hopefully will be playing by Saturday. Haven't had much time as I've been looking for a new job and moving into a new house and then there's also dealing with my best friends suicide earlier this year. But this build is for him. I know how much he really looked forward to this. Anyway, here's some new pictures.

The pillars after some filler



I can't do vinyl. At all




This is somewhat how it's gonna be setup. With the arc 4000se on the top shelf. The z18 enclosure is about finished. It just needs the 2nd baffle added then figure out how I'm going to finish it. I did dual kerf ports to keep it symmetrical cause of some OCD issues I have. I'm leaning towards herculiner coating it. The ports are painted red to match the 'blazer. I'll add pics of the enclosure later today if I get some time after work.
