add ona mask and well ventilated area. the better answer to the question why some of the top enthusiasts said nothing is it's pointless. your trying to save money on something that is like beating a dead horse. for the price of materials and amount of them u could easily build your own box setup for less then messing with that one. and to all i think hes asking bcause on most audio shows like the one on speed or pimp my crap from a junkyard. they resin over a material that looks like carpet thats on a pre fab box and thats just pointless. or lastly he's re shaping the box to look better. imo a pre fab box is just the same as a built one in terms of what it was built with. most are mdf and carpet with a good sealent and that's the basis of most boxes out there so it's pretty much do able but just dosen't serve a logical purpose.

Yes. No need to use a mat if you are just putting the resin on the wood.

makes a whole new door starting from scratch would be hard. Its all about how you want it though. Do you want it truly custom or do you want it to still look stock but altered. As for me, I'm fiberglassing over my current door panels. Go to www.stevemeadedesigns.com, Theres a Thread called "Just Me" or my projects. Look at the honda civic rebuild thread where he fiberglasses his door panels. www.fiberglassforum.com is also a good website.

Depends on what you plan on doing for a finish. If painting it. Yes, Bondo fills all the air holes from the resin, then sand off the bondo with 1500 for a smooth glass like finish. If carpet. Your done.

sand with 80 grit for carpet, sand with 220 for vinyl, and sand with 440 and up for paint. Don't use bondo, use rage gold or any evercoat filler product. It will also help strenthen the project. You can also use duraglass which will strenghten the project even more and then put body filler above that for a smooth finish.

Look up automotive paint supply in your search engine with your zip code. They should have rage gold, rage extreme and all that. I don't hear any good things about bondo so I wouldn't buy that brand.

no, local automotive paint supply store! You can use that bondo if you want, I just wouldn't recommend it. Up to you.

I told you to get evercoat rage. why didn't you listen, thats the problem with bondo, it leaves holes. And the quality of it isn't as great. Anyways, if it keeps leaving holes, mix half resin and mix half bondo, its called a milkshake. Mix, then at the end add the mekp, mix. And then brush the mixture onto your project, that should reduce holes hopefully.
