    That was my thought too, but the frame looks good.

    You just want some cheap fiberglass resin, HD/lowes should carry it. If you want to strengthen up the joints get some fiberglass mat from online.

    Go to your local fabric/craft store and get some stretchy cloth. Shape it to how you want it and put resin over it to strengthen it. You might be able to find some mat at an automotive place like VIP or even aubuchon, but I've never seen it at lowes/HD.

    Re: first wall

    the best place to get resin n chopped matte is a local marine store if you have one..... my next choice if i had to would be ace hardware stores. the stuff lowes/hd sells is the bondo brand resin or elmers.....its ok to use but not the best quality of product for a big/decent size project.

    subs : 1 SSA 10" gcon D2
    doors: not sure...assuming factory lol
    amp: PPI black ice series 1300.1D
    wires: whatever was there..... 4 awg
    alt: stock
    Big 3: not yet
    box: mdf/fiberglassed box ported tuned @ 34.... in process of being built by me
