    Theres alot of u ways u could but it would be pretty hard to not let air threw and not look ghetto. I can tell you how to permanently plug one but thats prolly not what u want.

    I personally like the sliding port idea better. To me it's easier to adjust the length of a single port. As opposed to blocking or plugging one. But it's personal opinion. . What you use to plug a port depends on the shape of the port.

    well if its a pvc port then i'm pretty sure they make plugs for them. i'd say wrap a bunch of weatherstripping around it and shove her in.

    If it's pvc I would just get the sewer version with the threads on the inside at the end. That way you could just screw the cap on the port.

    That's why you round the port edges on the inside of the box.

    I'm not usin PVC piping. I am going to plug a rectangular port that is 7"x2". I have been told that if I am good with the saw I should just cut a 7x2 piece of wood and plug it with silicone. Will that work? Any other ideas, it can look ghetto if it has to(but preferably not).

    I would use rubber weather stripping. It will hold up alot longer than a bead of silicon.

    Alright, we'll see how this turns out

    It is about 25% until you get to glassin'. Then the fumes take over and you can only handle about 5%
