You make it out of wood and make speaker rings and elevate them then staple flice over it then brush the fiberglass risen over it.

how much does a job like the one below gos for .....just for the wave looking motion ?

Depends on a lot of things like what kind of car, what you're looking to put in the trunk, how you want everything configured, if you need it painted and all wired up or just a rough fiberglass box, where you're located, if you're having a professional shop do it or someone you know, etc etc etc. I don't know much about fiberglass but i do know that it takes a lot of time to get a smooth finish like those in the pics and good work isn't cheap, cheap work isn't good.

Post up what equipment you have and what car and someone should be able to give you a rough estimate,

fiberglass aint that hard. making things semetrical is really the only hard part, and thats just like doing bodywork,but more fun and rewarding.

Alotta people just get turned off from it by the mess. you just gotta have a good place to do it and a few right tools to make the work easy

TO DO A BOX WITH TRIM PANELS ALL GLASS AND PAINTED I CHARGE $3000-$5000. THAT WAS IN THE HAY DAYS WHEN PEOPLE SPENT MONEY. :biggrin: YOU COULD PROBALLY FIND SOMEONE FOR A LITTLE LESS NOW. BUT IF YOU WANT EVERYTHING SPRAYED IN KANDY, DON'T EXPECT IT. ;)

try something new and learn along the way! its wood, fleece, resin then BAM. throw in some sanding with some duraglass and you saved yourself a lot of money. start with a board to be the base of your box. you can buy speaker rings. place them on top of wooden blocks to ensure sufficient air space. STAPLE and stretch the fleece around your base-wood and rings. cut out rings with razor. resin everything. at least three layers. sand smooth( may take awhile) fill imperfections with a fiberglass/bondo filler. nothin too it but to do it. its man made, meaning u can do it too with some patience and attention to detail.

damn if it was that easy, no one would be able to charge 3000-5000 for a good job. you have to know a lot more than the basics to do something like a full trunk. shit a small box takes a few days, a full trunk can take weeks, months depending on how much time a person has to dedicate to it. especially if you wanted it painted candy. damn price of paint material is a few bills alone.

na its not easy, but people will pay for what they will not try. time is money and folks dont always want to dedicate weeks or months. ya its not done overnight but attention to detail and some time, almost any motivated person could do it. most people are not patient enough to smooth the shit out of their work. prep work son.
