May I suggest .... Use RageGold  Xtreme for the outside ..

Way easier to sand .. gives a nicer finish ..

Spray on a Filler / Primer for the small "holes"..

then its off to Reg Primer and some final sanding ..

Good Luk .. lookin good ..

he wants the outside covered with suede, so a couple of skim coats of bondo should be enough to give it a smooth finish for that.

1-30-05 after the three layers were applied this morning we helped it dry somemore.

1-30-05 I even got in the act!

1-30-05 after about an hour we started to sand it down.

1-30-05 and this is the truck....he's getting some body work done before its painted. it used to be a candy red, he wants a medium blue with metal flake added.

the box dosent flex at all with the six lyaers on it. each sub will get about 185wrms, I'm hoping that it will hold up to that pressure, any thoughts?

we had to stop for today, had to go to work. I think we should be able to finish up next weekend.

where can i get that ragegold? any place other than online?

how thick can the bondo be and still be effective, there is a 1/8 to a 1/4 inch gap where the sub sits. it's only on one side, i was planning on building it up so the subs sit flush and gets a compleete seal.

If you have to build up a section I for the sub to mount too, I would build it out of fiberglass. Or you should be able to take the fiberglass dust if you can get enough out of the box or something mix it w/ resin and it will become like a putty and you build up w/ that.  If you dont have enough dust you can add talc powder to it and do the same thing.
