Absolutely


Applied a few coats of the amazing FlexSeal spray on rubber.





Still needs layers of resin inside and on the bottom in the back.
It's a slow process since I'm only working on it while at work.

Hell, you should fiberglass the entire thing, sand it, custom paint it, and then rock it

^ I just might seeing I have to add some around the edges to seal it to the box better. Might as well go all the way around! This thing is gonna be a beast for weight after I'm done tho. I just hope it sounds good.

Almost done with the box. Added some layers for strength and sealed up the seams from inside. Just test fit it again today and it fit nice and snug. I should be able to wire it up and test it tomorrow.
Gonna carpet it next week if it sounds good. If it don't, that was a big waste of time.

Yes it's 1 cubic and I foam insulated inside and cut out as close to that as I could.


I wired it up and tested it out.
It sounds a lot better than the box I was using.
Now just need carpet to finish er off.

No rattles other than the little bit from the hatch door trim. I used rubber gasket under my license plate so that don't rattle.

Thax! I'll post a final pic when it's carpeted and my hatch is all cleaned up.
