Question: Did you remeber to put a little acetone in your resin/hardner mix to thin it out when you first applied it to the fleece?

No I didn't add acetone
I've already ordered carpet lol, I ordered 5 sq yards of it from partsexpress.com Hopefully it'll be enough to do my amp rack and enclosure and false floor.

I went to JoAnn fabrics yesterday. I found a thin kinda carpet material that matched all the OEM panels in my trunk almost exactly. I got 2 yards ($4.99 yd) and a can of contact cement.
Soaked the box in 2 good coats of cement, let it dry 45mins-1hr and wrapped the box.
Work the carpet from the center out, apply heat (blow dryer/heat gun) to give the carpet a good contact with the glue, also apply heat to work out any wrinkles, creases or any edges, I did my entire box with 1 piece of carpet. It was surprisingly easy, and came out better then expected.
