Thing is, no one reproduces the original Cougar kick panels with the perforated holes. I know West Coast Classic Cougar has been looking for some means to create them, as there are plenty of repro panels that fit without the holes. There are also a ton of them with speaker pods that stick out, but frankly, I don't want something in the way down there by my feet.
I've chosen to cut out a couple of the generic reproduction panels, and I'm putting in speaker mesh with a surround (which is tricky because of the rib that runs down the midline of the kick panel). I've got a couple speaker buckets and I'm going to mount 6.5" speakers in the metal behind the kick panels, much like the original factory mounts. We'll see how it all turns out!
