    Enclosure Finishing Ideas. HELP!

    I did a lot of research and the information is somewhat scattered. I figured I'd tap into the regulars to get their insight on what you use.

    I want to finish my enclosure with something somewhat durable but not carpet. I'd prefer it to be dark and have the ability to hide imperfections. I used Bondo & sandpaper to smooth over the screw holes and the edges are all rounded off nicely... It's smooth but not perfect perfect...

    So, I'm seeing Fleckstone, the Rustoleum Hammered and truck bed liner (Herculiner, etc) as viable options...

    I'd like:

    1. Something easy to apply
    2. Something that will hide small imperfections
    3. Something dark
    4. Something simple... I don't wanna go crazy.

    Spray or roll on... It doesn't matter

    Wow looks nice... Not bad!

    Maybe I will go the paint route. I'll use some BIN primer and have at it with a color that matches my interior.

    That's high gloss? Hmmm. I'll probably do an eggshell or maybe even a textured paint..

    Use cheap spackle to hide some of the imperfections and seems. Then you can use just about anything you want.
