    First fiberglass project

    Ok, thought I was gonna have a problem with the lycra spandex material I used but I think I will be alright now. I will reinforce the inside when my Cabosil comes tomorrow with resin, cabosil and strands mixture.

    Over all, I am happy with the project so far. I am building two of these, one for each side that will hold to JL 10w6v2s powered by a JL 1000/1. I just picked up a set of Focal 165K2Ps that will be powered by a JL 300/2.

    I will get a different material to fleece the other side to make myself have less body work because I want to fill em out and paint them. I am going to use Rage Gold for the filler. This stuff is good filler right? Thanks! BTW, I haven't even started sanding yet, this is raw box.

    Enclosure is looking nice as well - gives me an idea for my next enclosure. Right now I have a little bit of a problem with it slipping out of where it's supposed to sit, but if I 'glass down like you did I could gain airspace and not have it move around

    dont even bother with the epoxy. just mix up some quality bodyfiller (rage gold?) and throw it on with a credit card, or body spreader.

    id sand the whole thing with some 60, and clean in off before i add ANY bodyfiller though. id also fill the inside with resin\fumed silica before i did anything to the outside (dont wanna have to re-sand any drips )

    lookin promising though!
