They came out pretty well.

I'm surprised that you sent them to paint before cutting out the speaker holes, which is what I've done in the past.

Did you do the finish work prior to sending it to paint, or did you have them do it?
Raiding is full of challenge. Sometimes there is fire. You have to not be in the fire.

I WRAPPED (fixed :p) them in the fleece and the guys at my gel coat shop did the rest for me. All I was looking to have them do was glass them for me being that they have everything there, but he ended up doing all the   work for me :P. When I get ready to cut my holes I'll just mask them off so I dont scratch the gel coat

W-R-A-P-P-E-D them, Hiro.  I'm pretty sure... PRETTY sure you didn't R-A-P-E them.  Gives the term "audiophile" a whole new meaning.  >:3

Screen Shotted this as proof down the line.   :P
