    Box Finishing Advice

    Hey, What up?

    I've built a box for my two kicker 10's and i'm painting it. So far i tried to put some primer directly onto the mdf and it just ****** it right up. As of now the box has 2 coats of KILZ odorless oil-base primer. I'm thinking that i'll sand that down and put like 2 or 3 coats of a dark sandable primer on top of that and then put a couple of dark green base coats to match my truck. I found some rattle cans that are pretty close to identical to my truck paint from advance auto. After that i want to clear coat the paint to make it look nice and glossy. Does this sound like a good plan? And could i find some spray-on clear coat in a rattle can anywhere? Any help is appreciated!!!

    I've never painted a box as I always use carpet... but I think what a lot of guys do is sand the box down so its smooth then brush on a coat of poyester resin... then sand that down and paint over that...
