well box is 45.5"x 20" x18"...so roughly 3 there, and just over 1 yard for the amp rack

thinking of just painting it like my other box it with texture...$10 for paint, and misc materials

That's about 30 square feet exactly... add like 2 square feet for overlap... 32 square feet...

So your amp rack is like 22 square feet?

the way I figured it...18" top + 18" for bottom+ 20" for back side+ 20" for port side= 76" long x however long the carpet comes....so one yard is 36" long, so 76/2 is just over 2 yards and 20% for waste

amp rack is 3 45.5"x 13" pieces (so roughly 1 yard)...add 20% waste.

so I figure 4 yards should get me done

No pics, sorry. It stretched and cut fine, its just a slightly higher quality and texture version of the Wal-Mart brand. I used it because of the width that they offered, everyone elses was smaller.

Worked with superflex numerous times before, great to cover flat boards in, or to replace carpet on a floor. Not so much to cover boxes in, or seam...

No thanks.

Yes, this is the standard for the car audio industry. What all commercial boxes are covered in.

I'm thinking that with 80" I'm just gonna have more waste, since the box im doin is 45.5" wide

it has worked out well for me, i just line up one side ~1.5" from on edge, and use the extra for the inset sides.
