Well i decided to spare no expense on this box and im glassing the whole inside with resin and mat, im hoping to help airflow and of course help the stability of the box.

So should i get a Quart or a Gallon of resin to make smooth 45 corners and to make the inside of the box glossy..

BTW is this a good idea i figured it could help with SPL

Unless your doing a monster box a quart should be plenty

but if you want to get a gallon you can make like clear plexiglass type windows out of it and all sorts of neat stuff

if your doing all surfaces you'll need a gallon.

it really has no effect on the flat surfaces but it can be great to make sure the box is airtight, with the mat in the corners it should reinforce it well.

Yea well its better than my step dad wanting to put 1x1 blocks down the whole box hahaha. i talked him into making them into 45s and us glassing it.

clocks are overated, are you gonna do any audio in it? i cant imagine it even being worth doing unless you do a full exhaust, that BB is gonna rumble.

those hybrids are ****, if it has a full exhaust and you deaden the car(which seems like a good idea in a street car) then i would definately do audio, maybe even a single 10 as well

that car will need some deading fiberglass tends to vibrate a little and its also good for heat absorption.;)
