how do you paint your mdf sub box?
i know this has been asked before but i can not find anything clear enough for me.
What materials are needed.
And what are the exact steps for the process.
thankx

smaller boxes I rattle can, first 2 layers of thick auto body primer, then 4 base coats, and as much clear coat as I see fit. On larger boxes I roll on oil based rustoleum, wetsand, and clear coat

Will be much stronger but how will it look nicer? You mean just because you where the wood meets it would be smoother and so on? I only resined one box and after carpet it looked normal

gives you a better look outside as well when you resin the outside
