    300zx fiberglassed hatch

    i may be doing an instal in a jdm 93 300zx tt soon. im not the most skilled with fiberglass but i think im pretty sure i can handle it. the enclosure is going to house a type x powerd by a apline mono amp. he also wants to possibly have a nitrous bottle encorperated into it. here is the basic idea i have for it. of course, it is not to scale or anything, it just gives you an idea of what it might be like


    since i havent done a fiberglass project this size, im wondering how much fiberglass resin/mat i can expect to use

    thanks for any help
    btw heres a pic of the car

    id say around 6 bags if its the 8-9 sq ft bags... and probably over a gallon of resin depending on what all you plan to be fiberglass

    Re: 300zx fiberglassed hatch

    yea he says he wants the whole trunk to be fiberglassed. im not exactly sure how big the hatch area is so its hard to say. i will try and get pics of the hatch with lots of measurements asap

    Re: 300zx fiberglassed hatch

    i guess i may as well bump this. hes droping the car off today, however i dont beleive he wants the same thing anymore. by the sounds of it, he wants his 12" type x glassed into the spare tire well facing out the hatch at a subtle angle. i will make a build log after i start
