Default 5.25"&6.50" Speaker Adapter Rings?

Hello everyone, I was wondering what thickness of wood would you guys make speaker adapter rings to adapt the stock speaker holes to a 5.25" front door speaker and for the rear speakers adapt the 6X9 speakers to a 6.5" Midbass Speaker? BTW my ranger is a 1994 XLT. So the stock speakers are 6X8's all around.

I just used some 1/8" stuff from Lowes. Cost like $5 for a 2'x4' sheet.

Would you have any pics of the adapters? Also how did you connect the adapter plate to the stock speaker holes? did you use bolts?

I just made it 6"x8" and used the stock speakers to figure out where to put the holes to mount the plate and then just used the stock speaker bolts to bolt it up.

I used two of the factory ones(that's the only ones that would line up) and then just put two more into the adapter plate to hold the speaker tight.
