ok...i've been thinking about this for a while and i'm wondering if anyone has tried or seen somebody with an enclosure in the rear windows. i've seen it done on a few other suv's but i can't really find any how-to's. i'm not scared of fiberglass, and i'll have all the time in the world to make it fit right. i'm just wondering if anybody has tried it.

here's and escape from polk audio.

1. Make the form you want with foam and bondo. This is called the "Plug."

2. Brush on PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol) as a release agent and let dry.

3. Laminate 2 layers of 2 mm fiberglass mat over the plug. This is called a "Splash mold." At this point you can also bondo on several plywood braces to help keep the shape of the splash mold true.

4. The next morning de-mold the plug and discard. Fix any problems (air voids) on the splash mold and then brush on PVA and let dry.

5. Brush on automotive primer into the splash mold and let set up.

6. Laminate away.

7. The next morning de-mold your part, sand, paint and install.
