Hey all, so I figured I would try my hand at building a fiberglass sub enclosure in my 05 obxt. I've been an audio/ remote start installer for years, but I've never built a single box before this. I really wanted to have a box that would fit in the hatch behind the wheel area that didn't eat up my wife's valuable storage space and was a bit sad to find that jl had discontinued their stealth box for this year of car.
So here's my attempt!
First I cut a template of my box out of cardboard to get an idea of what I wanted it to look like. I wanted to maintain use of the cargo net so I made sure to notch the bottom corner to accommodate it.
Then I used masking tape, plastic and newspaper to mask off the area I would be fiberglassing.
And started slinging resin and glass
Back of box hard enough to remove
Next was to cut the face of the box out of mdf
And to use it to trim the glass portion of the box
Then I glued the box together using kitty hair and resin
