that is not necessarily true as bodymen have been known to fill dents with bondo, it is true that a product called nitrostand was meant to fill scratches and imperfections up to 1/16th inch thick which is essentially a glazing putty... bondo that is improperly mixed or applied could crack easier if it is put on heavier, such as 1/4 inch on up... people who build custom fiberglass enclosure have also been known to incorporate the use of bondo to finish out nice curvatures and shapes... in my experiences it is safe up to a 1/4 inch at least...

06cbrboy yes i realize this my father runs a automotive paint and supply company. There are tons of cars on the road today that have way way way more than 1/16" of bondo thickness.

06cbrboy well i guess i never thought of that but also worried about using the bondo cuz of vibrations just dont want the outside of the box to fall apart inh a month
04-13-2008 01:56 PM
korey_hofer why cant you use threaded rod counter sink the nuts then fiber glass over them or is it a completly fiber glass box?
04-13-2008 01:47 PM
06cbrboy im having the same kind of issues man i know ill ned to brace my box when i make it but not quite sure whate to use and were to put it. im afraid im gonna make it sound like trash. my box is gonna be in the neighborhood of 6-7.5 cubes and my biggest panel is going to be 40x21.5 so i feel your pain. all thread is kind of out the window for me too cuz im trying to fiber glass it so i can paint it an make it look good cuz its going in a new ride

mytyeerinpie i'll try to get some pics on in a few hoursi am ot at my house and sadly no usb for my camera here
04-11-2008 11:58 AM
mytyeerinpie yeah thats what i was thinking it is 3/4 MDF and the longest panel is 37 inches by 26 so but the port is ggonna be braced against it so i figured it would help, the port runs along the bottom 4.5 inches by 37inches, the subs are on the top of the box thats about 22 by 39

Depends on the dimensions, and thickness of the material you used to build it. 7cuft isn't a small box. Large panels of 3/4" MDF can flex like a bugger if you let them.
General rule of thumb is the larger the panel, the more bracing it will need. But it would help to see a pic of the box.

mytyeerinpie not yet, i just took some alittle while ago and havent put them in the computer yet

Tacosys I cut the hole smaller so I had to thread the rod through, so no leaks in mine. And like someone mentioned above, make sure to put washers and bolts on both the inside and outside. So if you do 2 rods, you will need 8 bolts and 8 washers.
