    Carpet Alternatives

    ive decided to get my box custom built for my alpine type r. Unfortunately, it doesnt come covered with carpet or anything. it's just the plain wood.

    What are some other alternatives to carpeting? Could i spray paint it??
    What do yall recommend?

    there's vinyl...



    A couple of hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead? There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says: "OK, now what?"

    i'd rather not spend money on carpet/vinyl if all i have to do is spend $5 on a can of black spray paint.

    You don't HAVE to cover it with anything. That's just for looks, dude.

    Re: Carpet Alternatives

    if you used partical board u will need to put a really thick layer of primer on and if its mdf it will be good to primer but wont need as much on the cut ends of the wood will soak up almost all the paint and look bad to make sure you have a lot of primer on the cut ends of the wood and insted of spraypaint get some deck paint or something u can brush on i have tryed both and spay dosent look near as good as brushing on with or without primer
