    not too bad. could have used a little more TLC on the finishing filler\skim layers tho. the reflection looks kinda uneven.

    but thats a minor problem. i like the flushmount. but if you needed airspace, why didnt you just glass over to the side\back further?

    not the best choice of sub\amp - i cant see it pumping more than 300w outta that MTX. but not too bad looking box.

    was this your first time?

    Re: New Fiberglass Install(pics)

    lately?

    i try to point out where things can be worked on without being an *******. and i believe that is the only way for people to grow and understand that its not perfect, being constructive about somones install, and seriously pointing out what you think they can imporve without being mean is the best way to help somone.

    at least thats my philosophy.

    and i was just being honest. the box looks real nice, but i would have gotten a different set of equipment is all. not being negative. just not my cup of tea

    I don't think your a jackass, this IS HOW PEOPLE LEARN. We can't have people going around thinking they have an awesome install (This does not pertain to the original post btw), when in reality they need alot of work.

    your fiberglass project doesnt look any better man, hehe first time? , plus you used actual fleece with soaks up so much resin and leaves millions of tiny air holes when u actually apply the chopp matt on it. oh wait you skipped that step. .
    also i counldnt glass back any further, cant yo see the trunkarm swings in the way .ive glassed numerous projects and installed a fair share too. thanks for the critisism. someones got to do it heh

    BTW that amp will do 500 watt rms @4 ohm
