just leave the carpet on the box, mix up some fiberglass resin and start brushig it on. be sure to soak the carpet really well. once its dried just sand it smooth and prime, paint it. painting the wood like the other dude said won't look good.Originally posted by theride87@Aug 27 2006, 04:31 PM~6053680
I have a 2 12inch sub box that is carpeted, but I want it to paint it the same color as my car, its mdf, how can i make it shiny, can sum one advise on what to do, I never done anything like this before
i see this all the time. Anything people see painted, they just automatically think it's fiberglass.Originally posted by Juiced10+Aug 30 2006, 02:19 PM~6073428-->:uh: x100ok not the easiest way.... easiest way to make it look good. not like a hack job like covering the screw holes wit bondo and primering and painting straight wood

I have painted mdf several times, sand smooth, body filler on any screw holes or low spots, lay down a few good coats of primer and wet sand the primer. then paint.
just make sure you get 100% of the wood covered. if you leave any wood exposed, it can get wet and swell while you are wet sanding.
a lot of people come back and say "I want my box fiberglassed like you did that one guys" then I tell them there was no "fiberglass", just primer.
I think some see someting painted base coat/clear coat and automatically call it fiberglass.
