I am looking to build my first fiberglass box, but I have absolutely no experience in fiberglass. I am looking to create the bottom in fiberglass to contour the floor underneath the seats of my NBS 2008 Sierra.
The rest of the box would be made out of wood. I have built about 20 or more boxes when I was a teenager so its been a while since I have built a box in general.
All I need help on is the first initial part. I am not asking for someone to help build the entire enclosure. I need help on the following:
Materials needed (Specific)
Molding the resin
Marrying the fiberglass bottom to the side pieces of the wood.
I can do the rest like building the box, sanding, painting or carpeting, wiring, configuring, tuning, etc...
I have a garage and have some power tools so it can be done at my house. I'll help out with gas. If you have a great wood working shop, then I can drive to your place.
I'll be willing to compensate for your time. I'm not looking to take up most of your day or anything like that. Just a 2-3 hours. Just need help getting started. Once we get the first layer of fiberglass laid, then I can handle the rest.
I live in Allen.
I am looking to do something like this. This was posted on the board by a fellow member.
I want to make the front fascia removable as I may go from these new 12's I got that I havent even opened the boxes up yet; two TC Sounds LMS-R 12's. I havent heard back yet on the minimum, optimal, and maximinum ported box requirements yet. If I can get them to fit, then I will throw them in there and see if I like them. If doesnt achieve that sound I am looking for, then I want to change it to four SA-8's Version 2's ported to 30hz also.
However if I figure out for sure that I cannot do the LMS-R 12's, I would do the 8's. Then I would like to do a front fascia like this. Again, posted from another member on this board. I admire his build work also.
If I can atleast just get the fleece stretched and have it set up, I can handle the rest if I decide to do a front fascia like this.
I know its a long post, but like I said, I am just looking for someone to atleast talk to, maybe set me up so I can get this started and then I will take over from there and finish the project. Im not looking to take up too much of your time. Just need someone here for a couple hours to help get me started and show me how to do the mold, resin, first layer of fiberglass, etc... just the initial stuff.
And again, I will compensate for your gas and your time.
Please help me get over this fiberglass phobia I have been avoiding for a while. I want to get over this hump. Thanks!
