    Fiberglass as the bottom of an enclosure

    Hey Guys and Gals

    Can you use fiberglass to make the floor of your enclosure? This would be much thinner than 3/4 MDF thus giving you more volume.

    The reason I am asking is I have a 2006 Ford F150 supercrew. I have designed an enclosure were I would fiberglass the floor under the back seats. This would be the floor of my enclosure.

    Any suggestions or comments would be great.
