Tomorrow (Monday, as long as it isn't raining...) I am going to try my hand at fiberglassing. I am building an enclosure to mount under the seats of my QC. If all goes as planned, I should have the bottom done tomorrow.

I have NEVER done this before, all I have is online tutorials to go by, but they seem complete enough. I have the materials, but I need to pick up some disposable paintbrushes in the morning.

Any last minute tips?

good luck getting subs to fit underneath the seats, theres no room there, can barely fit an amp.
I am considering cutting out the carpet under the seats, as well as under the bottom of the seats, but can't bring myself to do it yet!

It's a good thing the weather was not conductive to this project today, the vaseline is a good idea. I'll be sure to pick some up before this weekend.

No, not my actual floor! I can press a good amount into the carpet under the rear seats. There is a lot of space to be gained by removing some carpet from under there. I just don't know how to finish the cut edges nicely! Granted, the box will hide the cut edges, I am sure, but still...

Plus, I don't know what is actually under there...

if you use sub rings what do you use to hold them up over the base to lay the fiber mat?
I will be using mdf rings, I will probably just suspend them in position with some dowl or something, and hot glue them in place. I will be fleecing the top, already got the fleece.

The vaseline works well! For the baffle rings...aka sub rings made out of MDF...pick up some 1/4-3/8 inch dowels. Stretch fleece over it. Use hot glue to secure the dowels and the fleece VERY tightly. Put a coat of resin on the outside...and paint on some resin and mat.

NG
I guess I have read enough how-to's! I posted what was going to do before I read your post!
