What are the dimensions of the space you have? what size is the box you are going to use?Design the box to fit your space pretty much.

4.4 cu ft max enclosure should fit in your car.

yea it's possible.

3.95cu ft using a .5" mdf board internal volume. and
3.62 cu ft using a .75" mdf board internal volume, that not calculating the subs displacement or port displacement.

is it enough to make them sound loud or should i stick to the sealed box

is it enough room for the L7's

i would go with the 2 subs in a sealed enclosure. instead of a single sub in a ported.
more cone area. 1.31cu ft is not big but its a decent amount of volume per sub, and if the subs are pretty efficient it will sound very good. if you glass that trunk up, you will be able to make the ported box for both subs.

how much would it cost to glass my truck. if i do it my self

allot more then an mdf box. like those subs. id say. 4 gal of resin. a **** loads of fiber glass, some mdf board. lots of hardener, lots of brushes, silicone gloves, mask, cotton cloth, about $250~$300 a little less if you shop around for the best prices on materials. that not counting paint or vinyl.
