    first fiberglass work

    This is my really first eva fiberglass box. It was tough to start, but after the 1st layer, thing went alot better.
    -in the process of taping- this was actually tough b/c the painter tape didn't stick to well to the plastic surround:

    -tapping completed and trunk tape ready to go -

    -supplies - I used both mat and cloth, cloth was much easier to work with around the curves - the mat seem stronger:

    -after 3 or 4 layers - I will pop it out when this dry up:

    - guess what....

    it was tough to pop this sucka out! I think I might bend a few edges, but I happy with the way it turned out.

    - another view:

    I made my speaker trims during drying time. 2morrow will be fleecing, a few more coat, carpeting, and I think it should be good. Only freaking thing is waiting for the LOC so I can sort out my signals for the amp.

    Big thanks for this forum, i knew nothing about fiberglass. After reading ALL of the tutorial, i felt confident enough to try it out. It not really that hard after the first layer!

    Looking good. Here's a tip that worked great for me to add some thickness and strength to the enclosure. After each layer of mat & resin, dust some of the sawdust fom the mounting ring on the wet resin.
