    noobie needs help on carpeting a box

    Hey guys
    Am a noobie on this forum, as you could see by my post count lol. I have been in to car audio for years, but just recently got into making boxes myself. I usually built them and left them naked. Now I want to start putting carpet on them. I have carpeted a few of my boxes and the part I am lacking with is the sides of the box.

    I have everything eles down with the main seem on the bottom of the box looking good. I just cant do the sides worth sh*t. Does anybody have any tips to make the sides of the box look seemless?

    Any advice would great. Thanks

    i use the headliner adhesive that can be purchased at autozone, i find it holds just as well as the 3m spray and costs about half the price

    3M stuff is decent for the price.. ill have to post up this stuff my buddy uses at his shop.. gets it for like 4 bucks a can, and is the same size as the 3M cans, just cheaper and i guess holds a lot stronger in heat, and etc..

    I've used contact cement as glue. Although a bit messy, it will never come undone.
