Send a pic to a judge to be safe imo. I have seen door panels at finals with screws in them before, more than once.

well any news on whats ok or not and i would think painting the door panel would be ok and as for bobs van being illegal i would think its fully legal and if not then i would think that head judge/owner wayne harris would of dq'ed it at 07 world fianls he was standing right there next to it when bob blow the windshield right out of it and the doors where open for a long time right in the lanes. NOT everyone is trying to cheat to win we would like are cars/trucks to look nice for the people looking at them and sound good also not look like sh*t

why not they do it to the pandas they do one finnish washer and drywall screw for each pin this is what i was told. and i have had this done to my yougo for 2 yrs know and have been to a few 3x shows and it was deemed fine. as long as its one screw for each pin.

The section you refering too is a Aditional Instruction/Clarification saying simple that
----
Door pods are also permissible, as are custom fiberglass "build-outs" or other modifications that are made in order to accommodate speakers in the installation location.
----

Keep also in mind that all clarification and guidlines are good unless no other applicable rule is violated.

So Mike is not wrong ....

You Can Build a Door panel to accomodate your speaker.

You CANNOT build a gigantic panel reinforced that alters interior space, alter passenger seating ability (prohibiting normal operation of the vehicle)

I hope its quite Clear

my installers and boss at our 12V retail shop all say that it's hardcore spl guys like some of us that ruined car audio. Where it's all about being loud, and so many people give up on the looks.

I've had to run in Ex-2 before because the old doorpanels on my mazda were too much stronger with the buildup. 1/2 MDF and plenty of fglass. I agreed with the judge about them, and asked for a ruling before paying my entry fees at a 3x., still competed though.
