    My custom PSI 18 build

    Got a custom PSI 18, gonna put it in 4.2 cu.ft. sealed for now, prolly add an 18" passive radiator later on.

    My double baffle with roundover

    The awesomeness

    I'm torn between finishing it in a nice honey gold poly or painting it with spray on bedliner. My last box I did in bedliner and I love it, but this birch is nice enough that I wouldn't mind having it finished. Opinions?

    Re: My custom PSI 18 build

    Is it going in a car or is it going to be for HT?

    Re: My custom PSI 18 build

    I'm just finishing up a reptile enclosure made of birch. Two coats of stain and two coats of clear later I would say do the bedliner if you want the easy finish, do the stain if you want it to look sexy...

    I see. I'd go with the bedliner then. If it was HT, I'd go with the stain/varnish.

    Yeah, I went with the bedliner, wood just doesnt look right in a car. Plus, i didnt want to spend all the time needed to prep the box for staining.

    Nah, was a pretty day for it: slight breeze, no clouds and mid-high 60's. Still didn't want to lol.
