Just got the resin on the fleece last night.... damn this is taking so long.

Take a look at the pictures... it's still curing... should I put chop mat on it or should I just finish it off the way it is?

It's pretty damn ridgid and remember there are no speakers in the console and the console is comprised primarily of mdf.

Thanks.

If you feel that the Mdf is strong enough i would leave it.....since you wont have the pressure of a sub you should be alright....

Thanks man...

I think I'll mix up a batch of resin and expander and coat the inside with it.  If I use chop mat on the outside... finishing it off will be to much of a bitch... I'm sitting in my garage right now sanding that thing.

wow that is going to look awesome. Great job, and also thanks for all the pics. One question though, how didd you go about blending the fabric onto the plastic? What did you do to get them to stick is what I am trying to ask? Over all I would say a 10 of 10 so far.
Why do you ask if I ate paint chips when I was younger?

The MDF looks thick enough to hold it all in place, and if you reinforce the inside it shuld be all good, are you sanding most of the flat bits with an orbital n the curves by hand or what?  I think that chopped mat wuld be too much trouble and it wuld be unnessary.  Again great job

What's up everyone...

Here are some updated pictures...

I thickened up some resin and coated the inside of the fleece with it... didn't really like what I the 406 that I used to thicken the resin with.  It didn't mix that well.  Anyhow... it served it's purpose.

I also did a rough sanding with 40 grit and then put on a coat of primer so I could see all the areas I need to apply bondo.  I'm doing the bondo tomorrow.

Hey, I gotta ask - what's up with the shotgun hanging on the pegboard?  With shells?  Didn't you say you've got kids running around there?

Anyway, great work, I really admire the way you've stayed with it & inched along.  That's the best way to produce something truly quality.  Keep the pics coming!

The shotgun should be in the gun cabinet inside the house... but the wife asked that it be outside... my garage's are detached from the house... and my kids are 8 months and 2 years old and can't get to the shot gun... yet.  Not to mention that it has a chamber cable lock on it so it can't be fired.

Thanks for the comps on the probress btw.
