So I decided I want a 3 gauge vent pod but didn't wanna spend the 50 bucks that gaugepods.com wants for one, so i figured, why not make my own, im not done yet but once i get back to school ill get everything nicely fiberglassed in nice and flush, I took the pics with my cell phone so they aren't the best but heres what ive done so far.

I started out with a new center vent that i got for free :)


Then got a piece of plywood, traced some circles onto it using a spray can, used a big socket to trace the spaces between each larger circle and started cutting with a jigsaw.


still cutting....



Halfway there....


All cut!!

Time to start sanding




I plan do be done with this by the end of January, it wont look nearly as good as one you can buy, but it should turn out pretty good.

Don't worry fiberglass work never looks that good until at earliest the body filler stage. Luckily it doesn't matter what the inside framing and support looks like.
