    Fiberglass box.....

    Hey everyone, ok i made my fiberglass box not long ago and was wondering what i should do with this situation. Ok i read before that if you have air bubbles then that can make your box weaker or something like that, and when i made my bottom layer for my car i didnt have a roller or anything to get the bubbles out, i tried my hardest to keep them low when i was glassing until the last 2 layers when i got lazy. Well anyways now i have the bottom of the box ready for the next step with 11 layers(yes 11) and was wondering if its not strong enough because of the air bubbles...or will it sound crappy cuz of the air bubbles? Well i would think 11 layers would be just fine and dandy Well please tell me what you think i should do. Here are some pics of the bottom layer of the box....i showed close ups so you can see the air bubbles..

    Thanks a lot everyone, Seabass
    first off.. the links dont work.

    and second of all, please do not cross post across the forum. one post is sufficient, and it will be seen by people regardless of where it is. also, it is just going to screw up the replies if you post across the forums.
