Dressed up some damaged speaker grills.

Damaged door speaker, Think it just happened from people getting in and out. Looked online found a couple on e-bay for about $60.00. Instead had Mindy pick my up $2.97 worth of black felt fabric and a can of 3M general purpose spray adhesive ($4.00).

Easy to remove just a couple pressure tabs.

Started with spraying the back edges and under the lips of the grill.
Had a nice logo so I decided to keep them.

Masked the logo to keep the glue off of it, and also to make it easier to cut out later.

Sprayed speaker cover making sure to cover everything. Then started stretching the fabric over the grill.
Pulled the edges nice and tight to avoid wrinkles.

Trimmed off the extra.

Molded the fabric around the edges and tucked everything in nice and tight.

Looking good now.

Took razor and trimmed out the logo area.

Put back in place and looks sharp.

Did the same steps on front and back speaker grills.

Really like the look of the black and tan. Total job and posting them on blog took about 30 min.

Just Cleaning Again.

Sorry, Rain kept me from getting any before shots. You can use your imagination. Spent it's life on salt roads and living life as a company truck.

Cleaning a 1997 Pontiac Grand Am

Sorry about the weird order, but I had very little time to get this posted. This car seemed like I was done way to fast but compared to full size SUV's this puppy didn't have a whole lot of surface or carpet. Nothing to special, but normal cars need cleaning.
