My fiberglass encloser -- posted image.

I have recently finished my wood work and I am pleased with the outcome. Keep in mind the more radical the angles the harder it is to acheive the actual shape you are going for. I covered it last night after about the third attempt and brushed on the resin. It did'nt dry until this morning and I noticed some of the material took it's own shape in some spots it appears almost as if it shrunk. So what do you guys think so far? any pointers?

Ok these are all the pics I have.  the box contains two one cubic foot chambers for two twelves and it fits like a glove in the extended cab of my silverado ss. It's hard to see in the pics but some wrinkling has appeared on the sides of the amp rack that weren't there when I started the resin. Can anyone offer advice on this subject? My guess is it's from shrinkage but what should I do glass over it or what?

This I like, much different than the "traditional" setups without going crazy. Keep the pictures coming.

As for your wrinkle problem, take a closer and larger pic of it so we can get a better look at it. If it isn't too bad, then you can duraglass to reinforce it before bondo (can never be too strong). This is just first impressions, but you may not even have to worry about it, you can clean it up with bondo if the wrinkles aren't affecting the integrity of the structure.

Good Luck!

i like it to, nice design, i cant wait  to see the finish product....if the wrinkles are really bad instead of coverering them and hiding them, perhaps you can take them out before you mat them (cut them, sand them)...then redo the area kinda
