    Got my roll of Second Skin today...woohoo!

    Thanks Ant!

    Got that roll today to cover the trunk. I am going to be building a new box for my 12A, ported...so when I take the sealed box out to switch out my sub I will take the amp out and all the carpet, cover the trunk then reinstall everything!

    I should be pretty well done at that point.

    Dont forget!!!!!
    Preping the surface is the most important part of the install. Also use a roller and apply as much pressure as you can.
    here is how I prep the surface:

    use paint thinner or acetone since they will not leave any residue behind.
    Here is the way I do it

    Make sure you do this in a well ventelated are. Use a fan if you can.

    1. Get some LINT FREE towels. I get mine from a janitorial supply shop.
    2. Vaccume (shop-vac) the bare metal of the trunkdoors, floor etc to get all the dirt and fluff out.
    3. Heavily dampen the LINT FREE towel in paint thinner. and rub the hell out of the mounting surface
    4. let dry for 10 minutes, THEN go over it with a DRY LINT FREE towel again.
    5. use an air compressor to blow over the entire surface.
    6. repeate steps 3, 4, & 5 using a different, clean LINT FREE towel each time.
    this is how I do it, and it works very well.

    Thanks for the tips...Being in detailing for 10 years I definitely know about prepping a surface...a pain but worth it!
