hey guys i just started fiberglassing my box for 2 12 rx and when we went to put the resin on the fleece it started to eat the glue and it started to come up so now i have like a 1/4 in. gap on the rings for the speakers and it has to all be sealed up...how can you do it without this happening???

Use stapels over the edges of the box or on the back. No need to glue to the rings. If all you have is glue, then only glue to the rear of the box so resin doesn't get to it. It should be stretched tight enough to not need anything on the rings.
Check my sig if you need pics.

That box would be about $1200 painted and all like that. $800 - $900 primered.

I am not quite sure what you mean by folding the mat down to break the seal. If you can, throw a pic or 2 up for visual verification.

In the tutorials i see they usually have the fleece stretched over the speaker holes and then a piece of wood the size of the speaker holes placed on top the hole to hold it down while putting the resin

I also say your problem lies in the cutting out of the ring area.
Stretch the material over it and then resin it. Stapling on the back.

Resin the ring area real good. Try not to make it puddle up in the ring as you need to trim that out.

I think then you will be more pleased.
