First would like to say thanks to Mark for putting up with my questions on IM and boosting my confidence to tackle a fiberglass box for the hatch
1. Make base and back for the box and connect together.
2. Make sub baffles.
3. Secure baffles where I want them in the box with wooden dowels and hot glue.
Ok ... I understand that. But I want to go ported.
I was thinking all you would need to do is get a 3" or 4" wide rectangle by like 10" or 12" tall, make it out of 3/4" MDF, but make it only a frame ... like 2" long ... so I can attatch a proper port length to it after once I fill it with water and figure out what length I need. I really don't want just a rectangle port ... I want the fiberglass to kind of "flow" into it, so smooth edges as opposed to square. Is my idea of making a rectangle and placing it where I want it and holding it up with dowels a good idea? Or is there a differen't way I should do it when the time comes?
Does resin+hardener stick to plywood ?
When the time comes to 'glass, I only put the resin over the baffles so it covers the wood and about 2" or so over, right?
Oh, and when I make my base ... I make a little 3" frame to go around it. Now I just tack that in place with a couple dabs of hot glue. When I stretch the cotton fleece over the baffles and port, I glue the fleece to the underside of the base or the edge of the base, and then I only use the resin up to the little 3" wide frame I made, right?
I think that covers most of my questions at this point ... if not I'm sure you'll be hearing about it Thanks guys.
