Great work man.

So if I got this right. Once you have the form created you cover it with the fleece. Then soak with resin and let harden. Then you layer the inside with glass instead of the outside. THis helps to reduce the amount of sanding and filling needed for the final surface?

Ive never done glassing but want to give it a try. Everything Ive seen so far says to lay the glass ontop of the soaked fleece.

Is it going to be ported?
How does the fiberglass handle over 1000 watts?
I dont know why I like to stick to wood.

sealed
ive seen galss enclosures with multi thousand watts, no prob.
1/4 inch fiberglass is equivilant to the strength of 3/4 mdf
i used to use wood but glass looks so cool and screams custom!

its personal prefrance, woods cheep tough so if your on a budget than you may want to staick with wood.

That's cool. I've been wanting to make some fiberglass kick panels for my 87 LX for 8 inch speakers but I didn't know how to do it. How much would you charge to make them?
