    Building Fiberglass enclosure

    Hey, I've really been looking into building a fiberglass enclosure...sounds good, looks good. Anyway I found a site www.fibreglast.com that has all the supplies and stuff but how do I know which ones to buy for a trunk sub enclosure. Also if I am building a fiberglass enclosure for 2 12's what would that be called?

    Vinyl Ester/Fiberglass
    Polyester/Fiberglass
    Epoxy Fiberglass

    Please help me out.

    Thanks,
    Atvnut2065

    First you build the enclosure out of MDF, then fiberglass
    can be applied to create curved shapes that can be sanded smooth.
    You will need fiberglass cloth/mat, resin, hardener, paint brushes, handheld grinder/sander, polyester mold fabric to make shapes, and a respirator. It's not as easy as it seems.

    You lay the fiberglass mat on the enclosure, then mix the resin with a I little bit of the hardener. Take a paint brush and paint the resin onto the fiberglass mat, wait for it to dry, continue doing this untill you get it thick enough. Then sand it smooth. I'm sure you could use vail cloth or other matirials but they won't be as strong as fiberglass.
