    you can do this either by editing(click on the advanced editing) the first thread, or by creating a worklog in the 'show off your project--worklogs' section.

    otherwise, it looks great so far!

    Wasnt feeling great the last 2 days, took off of work and felt good enough today to not be a lazy sadsack, picked up some marine resin and supplies and got the console in and laid down the first coat of resin.

    Still drying currently, hopefully can lay down some matte later tonight.

    Made some more progress last night, i have my console sanded to the point im happy with it i just need to pick up some more primer today to finish it up then ill post pics of it, also made a lot of progress on my woofer enclosure its almost finished already i skipped the beginning pictures since its not exciting to see pieces of wood cut out but leave me some feedback on the progress.

    Basic shape, meets to the top edge of the back seats




    I like to use tshirts over fleece since it takes less resin to harden the initial shape, but couldnt find a shirt large enough for the top and all wal mart seemed to have was this spongebob clearance blanket lol.



















    The picture from inside the box is to show what iv learned makes the job much much easier, if you leave the back off of an enclosure after the initial shape is hardened it gives you the ability to add your fiberglass from the inside which keeps the original shape much better, i normally add a thin layer of matte and some fiberglass filler to the outside just so i dont sand down to the cloth material before primering.

    The box itself is 3cuft per chamber with 3" ports tuned to 35hz for 2 arc audio Kar-12 dual 4 ohm woofers (250wrms handeling), an ard audio fd1200.1 1200 watt amplifier (much overkill but id rather have more power and less clipping then underpowererd and an ard audio fd4150 4 channel amplifier for 4 sets of component speakers (1 set in each door and 2 sets in a pod on the ceiling) pics soon to come.

    Welp heres the center console im really happy with how it turned out, tomorrow im gonna lay down some fiberglass over the carpeted area and fill all the cracks in so its 1 solid piece.





    The enclosure just has a few little things to go over, mostly tiny low spots and pinholes



    Probably overkill but ANY imperfection that i can see ill circle with a sharpie so i know exactly what to fill, sometimes it gets overwhelming when you have a few minnutes work time with your filler and a billion tiny holes to pick from lol
