DanTwoLakes Nice work. You can also use fleece as a base for the resin. Anything stretchy and absorbent.

HVAC Phil I've used a t-shirt before. Mount the "pods" for the speakers, then stretch the t-shirt over the whole kickpanel tight. Coat t-shirt with resin. I made a set for my f150, turned out great.

ogre fiberglassforums.com has a whole sub-forum dedicated to building kicks, that's where i'd start.
i'd start from scratch if they mount easy. if the mount is complicated try to build off a junkyard set.
if you build off the original kicks you will need to use the kick as a base for mounting purposes.
am i making sense here?

nskeeter99 OK should i just lay one layer of mat down on the original panel, and let it dry then build up, are just build from the beginning?

In a word, YES.
