this is going on the back floor of an extended cab chevy...

sub is a 15" Fi BTL.

credit to iam3amppimp for help with the design and he is making and sending me some rings to mount the sub on to acquire proper mounting depth.

when you're freehanding it does actually help a good bit...but when you're using the method i am here, i just used it to line up the saw with the line to make sure it was correct basicly.

Thats a real cool design. I also have an extended cab chevy, so I know how much of a PITA it is to work around that hump. Wont have to worry about it with the next box, cause it will all be fiberglass ;)

im liking this build so far.

you arent using screws?

if you are then you just screw it and move on, if not, then it says 30 minutes, but i have yet to try without screws...i just dont have the time/patience for that

Lil_KB
11-09-2006, 03:47 PM
i cant find a drill bit the correct size for predrilling for the screws right now and dont really feel like going buy a new one, so im gonna go w/o for now. ill screw it all together later just for peace of mind.

saywhat?
11-09-2006, 03:50 PM
dont worry bout screwing it later. no sense in that. but for future reference....its a number 6 predrill.

yup...its worked before so why not stick with it.

ill get clamps one day...maybe. haha

QtrHorse
11-09-2006, 04:55 PM
The nails will most likely split the wood as well unless you use some of those tiny trim nails but that would be useless.

GrnEydDvl
11-09-2006, 05:02 PM
x2 on that. After 30 mins of Tightbond II glue drying it is pretty much set up and nailing/screwing at that point seems like a bad idea.

Just use weights and clamps - then seal later with silicone. The glued joint is stronger than the wood itself.

I like the design. I am going to have to do something similar when I build my next big box.

Lil_KB
11-09-2006, 05:07 PM
i used some pretty solid nails and they didnt split the wood except for one and it was a basicly unnoticeable split.

Lil_KB
11-09-2006, 06:41 PM
work is done for today...ive done all i can until i go pick up another sheet of mdf tomorrow and cut out the side boards, then the fun starts...lol.

Brad nailer FTW!! Go get one and I assure you every build will go 100 times faster.

Lil_KB
11-09-2006, 07:45 PM
ya ive used one before.

i need a table saw more than a brad nailer.

hzsogood
11-09-2006, 07:58 PM
I never used a table saw for cutting mdf , always used a circ saw and a fat max level and a few clamps... just as straight and once you know the distance from the end of the plate to your blade its pretty quick.. Maybe i never used a table saw cuz its a pain to cut a full sheet ** edit** by yourself

iamamp3pimp
11-09-2006, 09:09 PM
it soo much monies tho,...the brad nailer.

I love complicated projects when they look like more than some stuff slapped together. In other words, when they start to take shape...it is really cool

Blah it doesn't matter. The only place it really would matter is if there was something underneath it. As long as it cuts all the way through, put it at whatever depth you want.... Look really good man!!!! 15 BTL in a truck, your crazy!!! I only wish I had the room to do that ::jelious::

Making the depth shallow will decrease kickback, which is always a good thing.

HAHAHA!!! Thats one of the best answers I've heard in a while!!

I'm not trying to start a fight but if you use the saw properly, kick back isn't an issue. Really it doesn't matter, to each his own, lol...

I had crazy kickback with mine until I set it to 1.25". I don't remember what it was set to before but I couldn't make cuts longer than about 15" long without kickback. It was really frightening actually.

Kick back can be scary as heck!!! I'm a carpenter and have had lots of times were if my had was just a 1/2" closer, i'd of had a really bad day. Another thing that ***** is when you pinch the blade and it kicks back, 10X worse then a normal kick back. 5000 RPM then a dead stop FTL!!!!

bout 6-7 hrs work on it today....pretty close to finishing, just 2-3 pieces of assembly, a coat or two more of paint, and cut out the sub hole and then mount it all. possibly a late night finish tomorrow, but most likely i will have vids by sunday.

heres some pics:

http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c81/Lil_KB/uigfuiuj109.jpg



and the final look of the night:

the box...the top is laying on, not assembled...i know, it looks like ****. this is with one coat, not even halfway dried, with the glare of the camera and overhead lights exaggerating the "spots".

http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c81/Lil_KB/uigfuiuj110.jpg

and a couple completely finished pieces that came out NICE.

http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c81/Lil_KB/uigfuiuj111.jpg

stay tuned.

iamamp3pimp
11-11-2006, 01:46 AM
i like the look, but make sure on this one

http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c81/Lil_KB/uigfuiuj110.jpg

that you sand down the edges where the piece that you need to glue on goes.

wood glue doesnt stick to paint, as well as it does to wood

other than that, i like it

The ends of the wood will look like **** always if you didn't put some kind of sealer/filler on before you painted. Just a heads up. You can put 100 coats of paint on the end of MDF and it still won't look good, but good job on everything so far, can't wait for the finished product.

ya i knew that before hand, but the box already has its rough edges, so i wasn't gonna even try to shoot for the "flawless" paint job look. i just want a black box basicly. if i had wanted it perfect i'd have taken a LOT more time on it. i'm just ready to put it in.

I think you should have removed those rear seats. It makes my legs hurt just looking at them all folded up!

Looks pretty good but it would have painted better if you would have used some wood filler on the end grain. Good job though!

lol...if i would have removed them then you would have been able to see the metal body and all...which looks like **** imo. looks better with the seats in. and i can yank the box and fold the seats down just like that when i need room.

for the next part of the total silverado build:

Gio 792s. yay or nay? im getting them either way but i just want opinions.

22s on 265s and 1 more inch of drop in the rear. its lowered an inch front and rear already i think. should look good once i debadge it and get the billet grille.
