Here are some pictures of my first project. I made it out of fiberglass because there would have been alot of trick cuts. Also I liked the looks of a fiberglass finish. My car is a 89' Firebird
The begining:

*Note no resperator soon bought one after this layer being outside with big fan wasn't enough air circulation*
The flimsy mold complete:

Fastforward a few layers....
The begining of fleece stage:

*Note MDF center piece to divide the two subs and added extra support*
Test fitted my box turned out to be to high and hit the hatch
So I cut it down some:

Test fit again worked out. So streached on fleece and here it is after a layer of fiberglass:

That's a really good use of the space back there. Gave me an idea for my next install.
