Hey guys
Am a noobie on this forum, as you could see by my post count lol. I have been in to car audio for years, but just recently got into making boxes myself. I usually built them and left them naked. Now I want to start putting carpet on them. I have carpeted a few of my boxes and the part I am lacking with is the sides of the box.

I have everything eles down with the main seem on the bottom of the box looking good. I just cant do the sides worth sh*t. Does anybody have any tips to make the sides of the box look seemless?

Any advice would great. Thanks

i use the headliner adhesive that can be purchased at autozone, i find it holds just as well as the 3m spray and costs about half the price

I have yet to have some one tell me a box has come unwraveled

3M stuff is decent for the price.. ill have to post up this stuff my buddy uses at his shop.. gets it for like 4 bucks a can, and is the same size as the 3M cans, just cheaper and i guess holds a lot stronger in heat, and etc..

I've used contact cement as glue. Although a bit messy, it will never come undone.
