I decided to make a little project in my new car. Its a 00 bmw 5. Because sometimes i need the full space in trunk (for shopping )i decided to go for a removable sub/amp enclosure. When removed, only the amp stays in the trunk. The pics tell you what i'am meaning. Let start with the pics.
The trunk

Adding a support for the amp

Sculpted with foam the sides for a perfect match with the contours of the trunk

Stretched fleece

This is how it is supposed to be with the amp in place

Glassing the whole thing

Applied bondo with a brush. Thinning bondo with some acetone and hardener is much more easier to apply.
Hope you like and give yr comments (also negative) Next step is sanding.
I will post more pics later.

They were made for easy access inside the box to apply a few layers of FG mats. When its finished i will close the back with mdf and resin.

I cuted out a ribbon in a sheet of plastic and stappled it to the mdf ring.

I thinned bondo with resin and acetone and added some hardener. This was almost liquid and can easily be applied with a brush.

That looks awesome. You have skills. But how are you going to get that mdf disc out that you used to hold down the fleece on the mounting ring? Won't the resin bond to it? Can't wait to see it finished.

blah blah blah blah

thank you for the compliments. About the mdf disc, look at the last picture, you 'll see !my little project so far with pics -- posted image. I didn't resin on the mdf disc. It was relatively easy to take out the disc.

ChrisZ3, what ratio of bondo,acetone and hardener do you use? I've never tried it before and need an idea of quantities you used.

Thanks

In a world full of copycats, it's great to be an original!

Ok those last two pictures were red Xs when i looked at this earlier. But i still dont see how it didn't bond a little, but i'll take your word for it. How much resin did you use for all that? also how is that huge amp gonna mount to that tiny square?
blah blah blah blah
