    Carpet alternative?

    Besides covering the box with carpet, what else can be done to make it nice? Finish etc..

    Fiberglass is too complicated for me. Fleckstone?

    My trunk is black so I thought of some shiny black paint or so!

    I got endless compliments and never any criticisms about the fleckstone box that I had in my old jeep that I sold. People would ask, "What is your box made of? Is that ... concrete?"

    You could use bedliner.

    To be honest, it was easy, relatively cheap, forgiving, looks good, and strong.
    I got the idea from an install that Geolemon did (a dude from CAF)(google geolemon box, I believe his tutorial is on a SD page) I just did the prep stuff (wood filler, bondo, sand like a mofo), bought a can or two (don't remember) of spraycan sandable automotive primer, sanded between one or two coats of that, and bought like 3-4 spray cans of the fleckstone paint I wanted and did 2 or 3 layers. I also did a coat of spraycan clearcoat. Overall the stuff was less than like $50, but looks good. I'd suggest it if you want to try it.

    stained oak polyply, the birch will be very similar, but have a looser grain.

    it's called lemongrass yellow.

    Vinyl, paint, bedliner, and if you can find it and find someone to do it, you could use carbon fiber (I don't recommend that to anyone though.).
