    im going to capet my box..help

    ok well i have a box built by jmanpc years ago and its still going strong. I did a slap job paint job on it and want to carpet it. Im looking for any tips ideas glue brand or type and carpet. As well as carpet length i will need with extra for mistakes.

    the box is 34w 14w 17h...it is ported with rounded corners. The paint looks pretty bad and also want to know if i need to smooth out the paint or sand it down so itll be easier to grab...?


    first want to start with carpet type...backed or not backed?

    then what type of glue...spray or canister.

    I like to use 3m Super 77 Spray Adhesive, $10 for a can at Home Depot, can also be found at Hobby Lobby and Jo Ann Fabrics. It's enough for about a 5-6 cu/ft box and that includes spraying both contact surfaces.

    I kind of taught myself and I'm not the best at seaming. Watch some vids on youtube and get good at seaming.

    Re: im going to capet my box..help

    i used 3m spray glue, non backed carpet,
    basically tried to make the front and top faces look the best.
    i used a black felt material, and where the seems were, used a hot clothes iron and melted them ever so slighty to make it look seamless.

    Re: im going to capet my box..help

    ok yea i looked at a vid on youtube bout the seaming...pretty informative. Does the spray glue stick as good as say using a glue canister and brush? Also...im not sure how much carpet i need? See prerolled ones on ebay...may just knock one of those off...

    I've never carpeted a box, but if I was going to (which I will in the future on my more refined build) I would sand it like a mofo.
