    Finishing options for glass?

    I have two questions really, if i have standard 4" pvc here at home and wanna do aeros, which flared ends to i want? I 4" inside flare or 4" outside flare? PSPs "buy it online" site has both....

    Inside Flare and Outside Flare

    Also, I'm gonna do a fiberglass box and wanted to know other ways to finish it besides glass smooth painting... I wouldn't mind it but I wasn't sure if doing something like black fleck stone on it would look tacky...? What'cha think? Thanks

    Well do not know why it would'nt look bad as long as you prime it first. I have seen people part carpet and part paint before so I would say it would look ok. If you want to be sure take a small peace and try it first.

    Yeah be creative. Should come out nice. You can do just about anything really. As long as you take your time it will come out nice.

    Ok, I just haven't seen any glassed boxes personally that weren't high gloss painted, I guess I wanted to see if people would think its pointless. Thanks I might give it a try. Anyone know about those dang aero flares? That's my biggest set back

    You could just use Primer instead of paint and have it a nice, dull, flat finish.
