    fiberglass shell

    Hey guys,
    i'm about to start working on a box for 2 brahma 10s thatwill fit under my backseat of a Z71 2000 model. I've been thinking and i'm gonna build a MDF ported box, and have been thinking of making a fiberglass shell to go over the plain MDF. Will this work? Help!

    WHY? FIBERGLASS IS ONLY STRONG ON CURVES! TOO MANY FLAT SURFACES ISN'T SUITIBLE FOR FIBERGLASS. USE AS MUCH MDF AS POSSIBLE ON FLAT SIDES.

    CAPS LOCK AND LARGE LETTERS RULE!

    Re: fiberglass shell

    Why make a box out of fiberglass to go under a seat?
