    ill give you some help on what you need. i did a sub box for my car but it had an amp and computer rack. i used

    8.5 sq meters of 450gm choped mat about 9 sq yards.
    20 kg or poly resin the 20 ltr drums.
    500gm or the cat
    paint drop mat
    heap of 70c paint brushes
    gloves
    fleece
    tape

    all this is on websites and they tell you how much you will need.

    i bought a heap of stuff so then the left overs can be used for pc case top and other things.

    hope this helps.

    for chopped strand mat, it all depends on the complexity of your shape, the thicker (read heavier) the mat, the harder it is to contour, but you will need less layers to get to the thickness you desire, whereas the thinner (lighter) mat will contour well, but you'll need more to get the thickness.
