Well today has had me baffled... you'll see what I did there shortly. It rained here most of the day so I only worked on this sporadically today. In other news the other half of the VCi temperature meter came the other day, should have more things coming tomorrow.



I went through Hunter Martin at EZ DB's for my design he used my sketchup SKP's that I sent him to come up with my design, I believe he's Raptorman something on SMD but I can't remember exactly. I did put a small twist on the loading wall with the steel core but it will end up exactly the same overall. The baffle I rounded over the cutouts on each side and on the front side I made the lips for the basket edges to sit in so they'll be easier to mount inverted. Used a lot of Titebond 2 to glue them together and they're currently drying. Tomorrow I'm hoping to get the loading wall done including the steel core.

Breaking my day into two posts one for new items and one for actual work that got done.*

First up I got a pack of B-Stock Second Skin Damp Pro. I've never bought anything from them and this is just for my doors. First impression is that it's nice stuff couldn't tell what makes it B-Stock by looking at the first few sheets in the stack. I'm kind of spoiled by vibraflex 160 so I was expecting it to be thicker but I can't wait to roll some on. I like how it looks with the logo printed on the foil, also like that it says made in the USA.





Also got the amps for my doors, things are pretty neat. They're supposed to be the same as the PPI 900.4 but I think they're more visually pleasing also at less than $120 each they're going to be hard to beat for price to performance in my opinion. I believe the spider logo is supposed to light up but I'm not sure I also don't really care. I like that they come with the reducers to run 1/0 I don't like that the screws are all phillips style and not alan head. Nice compact case and I like the brushed aluminum looking case as well.



Size comparison to the Soundigitals.







Lastly I picked up a Shield to compliment my Glock wanted something a little cheaper to shoot and I might carry this occasionally the low round count and lower caliber are kind of hang ups as far as carry goes but size is a plus for some things I can tell.

Ok on to what I actually did today, started out by doing Kreg jig holes in both sides of the baffle and getting it loaded in to the shell easy peasy as it was a lot lighter with all the holes cut out. Then I attached the first two layers of loading wall after gluing them together. Afterwards I welded the steel core for the loading wall and attached one layer of wood with PL 8X and 45 self tappers. Ground down all the screw heads and then painted on a layer of Titebond, afterwards I attached it to the two layers of wood that were already in place with 50 more self tappers. So that brings the grand total for self tappers to 719 total so far.*The last layer of 3/4 and 1/2 inch wood are currently drying glue wise so tomorrow I will get that put in place the 1/2 inch is so I can get the proper thickness since the steel core is an inch thick. Tomorrow not much is going to be done as it's supposed to rain in the morning and I'm shooting clays and such in the afternoon with my friends. Might make the rounded piece of the loading wall but it will be alright. More updates eventually....

Well Saturday and Sunday I just kind of piddled around with some things cleaned up the garage etc. Everyone probably thinks this build is taking me forever but that's okay I just like having something to keep me occupied in my spare time, plus I have to live with it so I want it done right. Got the last couple layers of the loading wall put in and the round over put on if you want to call it that. 56 more self tappers so 775 total for the whole enclosure. Filled in all the Kreg holes with wood filler think I'm going to do paint of some kind. Put a couple pieces of angle iron in the front of the sealed side seemed like a good idea. I also cut some steel braces out of flat stock and left over 1" rod left over from my neo motors. Didn't weld them up though since I'm out of wire. Lastly I painted the fuse holders I made and then wrapped them to match my RCA box I think they turned out pretty good. I should be home in 3 weeks unless I hear from the union thing that I had to test for sooner so that's all for now.*

Oh also the front of the loading wall I did out of MDF because in my experience it's usually a little easier to paint/finish.
