    Where to get carpet for boxes

    I was lookin at parts express, but I'm not sure which kind to get. Want it to be easy to work with...a link of what most use would be great

    also lookin for some wire terminals....which ones do you like and seal well? prolly use 10-14 guage on the terminals

    go simple....drill a hole in the box to run the wires through and then seal around them.

    you also get one less connection point!

    If you go with the parts express carpet, get the un-backed cabinet carpet. Very easy to work with.
