I'm planning a center console sub box in the next couple of months. The bottom will be fiberglass so it will sit nicely in place of the currect center console however the rest of the box will be mdf.

So after glassing the bottom how do I attach it to the remaining mdf?

Just screw from the bottom into the mdf or should make the bottom then add more resin/glass to build in the mdf?

Any picture examples would be great. Thanks

Yea that makes sense and all but how to keep the mdf from falling off? or moving while it tries to cure?

If you brush resin onto the mdf and the the glass. You can lay mat along the edges to join the two pieces together. Don't get to carried away with the resin on the vertical surfaces. Use just what you need and no more. Other wise the mat or cloth will pull away from the mdf. Then just leave everything sitting in place. Don't move it until it dries. :)
