Make sure you have plenty of primer to start with, MDF is going to **** up ALOT of primer to begin with. I think I sprayed 6~8 coats of primer on the face of my box alone.

I could have taken more time with my box as far as painting goes but chose not to. A good idea is to kind of sand your last primer coat to give your color coat something to stick to. Then wetsand between each color coat, allowing the paint to dry first.

Here's a couple pics of mine...remember I just sprayed it, no sanding involved, so if you take a little time it can come out glossier than this.

There's bad lighting on both pics so they don't exactly represent how the box looks, nor how "shiny" it is. I don't know what happened to the pics I took before I mounted the driver and put it in the car, but If I can find those I will post them...they really show how nice and shiny it is.

Its made of 3/4" mdf, they sanded painted then primered. The purple stuff if some type of fabric so dont pay attention to that.
