    Usually takes about two washes, one if the resin is fresh.

    It smells good too.

    it's basically ground up pumice, a lot like Lava soap.

    What happens when you get all of that stuff in your carpet? Then what? what about when you get the glass on some plastic panels or on the paint?

    it's extremely abrasive.

    btw - did you ever have any finished pics of your trunk? All I was able to see was bare fiberglass...nothing of it trimmed out or anything. If I missed them, please do tell!

    I have been working some extra shifts at work so I never got a chance to clean up.

    But I made a couple of changes. I decided to paint it instead of putting the carpet since i'm doing all this work to the car now. I also saw a few more trunks that had it painted and it looked so much nicer than carpet.

    I'm going to trim off a lot of the glass and make a nice shape, sand it down fill it, sand again and spray with a nice shiny black. I'm also going to give the screen a more molded look. I expect to be done with this in the next 2-3 weeks.

    BTW, I been checking out your car pics, great work man. I know who im gonna bother now, if I get stuck. lol.

    I've also been planning my dads Chevy VanPC

    We're doing 3 LCD's in the back- 2 15 inchers on swivel mounts and a 17 inch in the center and a flip out xenarc in the front. I'm relocating the headunit to an area covered up with a panel. Should be fun. I'll post pics after I finish planning and get started next month.

    hehe - feel free, all I ask is that you just do a bit of research before asking.

    I can't stand it when people just ask me questions without researching a bit before hand.

    Good luck with it!

    No worries. I always do research before anything. For example these doors... I'm asking and looking around now, but god knows they probably wont even get started until next year or something.

    Between school and work its really hard to find time to do anything, even sit for a minute at the computer and do some research.

    Oh yea, this car is also getting turbo'd or supercharged. So that adds to the fun, but I have a friend who will be doing this for me, he's the engine head.
