    Threads in fiberglass?!?! Replaced!

    One of my goals is to replace "threaded" holes in fiberglass (and sheet metal!) with metal clips. I finally got around to doing the door speakers today. Sheet metal screws in fiberglass? Seriously?

    Man, I'm really talking to myself here. To wrap up this topic, I think the quick connect fitting also needs an o-ring. My go-to shop owner, Craig Hill, came up with a o-ring that fits quite snugly.
