    You think it only turned out ok? That came out NICE! Looks very clean and well done. The only gripe I could see one having are the lines where the carpet meet on top.

    Re: My first fiberglass box pics!

    for a first time lookin great man!

    just fyi, usually when you are going to carpet, there is not much need to put so much body filler on there. sand the glass, maybe fill it a little on real trouble spots, but it saves alot of work you re just oging to cover up anyway.

    good work tho!

    Re: My first fiberglass box pics!

    Thanks everyone for the comments!

    The carpet was the part that came out the worst. Its something that i am definetely not good at. I was thinking and do people ever cover the box in fleece? Seemes like it would be much easier to wrap the curves since its stretchy. I guess it wouldnt be near as sturdy but i dont think it would get rubbed all that often.

    I decided to bondo it just for the experience. This way next time i do some fiberglass and if i decide to paint it i will have a little experience under the old belt.

    Thanks again for all the compliments.

    id use trunk liner next time on that. it streaches better. and will match your trunk more.

    I think it sounds pretty good. I have never had a 10" before so it doesnt seem really loud which is ok since i dont like bass that rattles everything.

    I will probaby recarpet it after i finish the amp rack.
