well here it goes....

so i did my taping and stuff to my frineds Intrigue, and layed the first layer of resin/mat and he went home with that strong odor of glass(you know that smell!) so after school when it was solid, we went to my house and popped the mold, so easy with painters tape it popped right out. well as you will see in the pics, i put a little 2 much resin on the bottom when i started so i just layed a large piece of mat over the bottom and just let it soak, but dont worry i'll be gettin her layered nice tomorrow with 2+ layers for the base. then ill remove the tape, cuz im doubting the strength of the sides at this point. there is also one air bubble i need to get rid of and re glass.

the glass **** below :yumyum:

Yeah more resin....you dont want any stray fiberglass hairs

yea more resin tomorrow to the entire thing, it will be alot easier to work with cuase i can tip it since its out of the car to get into the hard to reach places, the excess mat was just to soak up all the resin that was pooling. more pics tomorrow! its not a kick either, it will be a single or dual sub box for the trunk.

saywhat?
03-09-2006, 11:40 PM
soak that **** in resin, never hurts to drench it. do 2-4 layers on the whole thing not just the base.

ohyesi have a nice package of mat waiting for the sides as well. 2mora will be a good day.

for the future, that mold could of been taken out within 45 minutes of applying it, it should be hard enough by that point, this prevents the car from asboring that resin smell, then from here I would remove the tape ASAP, bcuz the resin creates this weird heat which allows for the tape to be easyly lifted, anyhow if this si ur 1st one, it looks good.

yea, but the kid that was helpin me mix some medium to large batches of resin i dont think put enough hardener in, but this morning it was harder than bob doles knob after 10 viagra. for future refrence i will mix the batches myself.

Nexson
03-09-2006, 11:55 PM
nice comparison lol not really what i want to visual though, yea but i did the same thing, didnt mix harderner the 1st time, ending up waiting forever.

how do u get rid of air bubbles with out a roller?

Nexson
03-12-2006, 08:14 PM
intially your suppose to get those air bubbles out before it dries, so your not faced with them once their hard. To get them out, i usually take a load of resin/hard and apply to the area, or i slightly tear apart the air bubble and flaten it back down with resin/hard. If you have dried air bubbles, cut them out and reapply a layer or 2 depending, onto the air bubble area

use a bristle tip brush. It works wonders.

03-12-2006, 08:45 PM
good idea, im puttin on 1 more layer for a total of 4, then im gonna remove the tape and post some pics.

okay, so i got the tape off and put it back into the car, and its perfect, now i have my fleece and more mat/resin, but i dont have the rings yet! how hard are they to make? they will be for 2 12" MTX 5500's i think. i'll put pics on later 2nite.

i have both, but no router jig. what would be easier jig saw or jigless router.

Make yourself a quick jig for the router. :)

03-15-2006, 12:53 PM
does a router work the same as a roto-zip just like push it down from the top. ill just borrow my schools roto zip for the night, i've heard alot of good things about it. seems little and easy to use.

ramos
03-15-2006, 01:08 PM
Yeah you can, you can also use it in a table and cut from underneath. Good luck with the rotoslip ( I personally hate them ) :)

question. got it cut, got the rings done, nicely with the dremel and circle attachment.
Question: Now when i put the dowels in to hold the rings, once i stretch the fleece over the rings and glass it do i remove the dowels??

you can, i've seen some people just leave them in there, but for ported fb boxes, it might mess up the displacement a little. but after you strectch the fabric and have a layer of resin over it, i'd say itd be safe to take them out.

kpozr2
03-19-2006, 03:56 PM
its sealed so im just gonna glue them to the box, then leave em in there for a little more support, never hurts.

the third one down would be different, i kinda like it :)

kpozr2
03-19-2006, 11:00 PM
i thought that too, but idk if the back spacing would work.
question: do you just have to hot glue the dowels in place and work from there or do you need to glass the dowels for extra support?

03-27-2006, 04:43 PM
can i glue it to the rings 1st and start from the rings and work out? hott glue??

saywhat?
03-27-2006, 05:11 PM
staple to the ring, i suggest stapling to the side of them ring if possible.

03-28-2006, 11:29 AM
question: i got the fleece pulled and glassed (pics in about 1 hour) now i cut the excess fleece down to about 2 extra inches hanging off the box, now do i glass all of the excess fleece down to the box, or do i just leave the stray edges, i need to get some more fiberglass to cover it all again to make it stronger.

IamDeMan
03-28-2006, 12:12 PM
Well I'd cut as much excess of that I don't need as possible. Then just resin the strays down. Now give me those pics dammit :P

I do something similar myself. I Leave those edges unresined. Once you finish coating the outside well. Cut out the sub holes so you can pour some resin inside along all the seams. Looks like you will have enough room to lay mat on the inside pretty easily. Be sure to get several layers in the corners formed by the fleece and your previous glass mold. This will seal the two together. Once you have done this. You can go back and trim the excess fleece flush with your mold edges. And everything will remain sealed. :)

ok got an update, just got the outside completely done, now im gonna dremel out the rings and seal the inside seams, pics 2mora got a college over nite visit 2nite so 2mora will be sanded pics with holes cut.

soak that **** in resin, never hurts to drench it. do 2-4 layers on the whole thing not just the base.

you dont need to put 2~4 layers on it if its not going be be wight bearing. fleece is usually pretty **** strong, and if it flexes, add a few bits of matt there.

you definatly need to soak the rest fo that crap in resin tho.

make sure you fiberglass the mat over the excess fleece, looks good man, isnt fiberglass a biattch!, im still getting yelled at by my dad, cuz i runined the sidewalk, garage floor and front door mat, with resin (since it all dried up ) lol
