Ported Box 4 Re Mt 18's (my Current Box) Updates, More Pics 4-21-07

Recommended Posts

Steve, First, the box looks great!  I wanted to ask you about the inside setup and resin.. Did you just use the whole 5 gal. of resin alone or did you fiber glass and resin the inside??   Also, is resin supose to be very thick with the hardner added? As you can see, I just started learning about resin so I'm a bit lost.. is there a way to think this stuff out or I'm not supose to? =V^I gotta try that 45 degree angle thing you did.. I think I may need some more resin. Waiting to hear from you. until then take care and GOD BLESSGavin

thanks man!  Yes there is 4 layers and some places 5 of nytex "X" mat 19 0z glass mat.  You dont want to go very thick on the resin without anything backing it up or it WILL crack on you.  If you 45 the corners the way i did you might experience some cracking since its thick in those areas.  What i did though was once i had the shape i went over it another time with one layer of mat and some resin to cover the cracks and its perfect!  Also mixing too "hot" makes it want to crack and warp more then normal so get your ratio of Catalyst to Resin right for the conditions outside and watch the thickness.....you should be iiiight.  When in doubt toss a layer of mat in and be done with it though  :^

Few questions for you Steve-(1)What kind of Resin is it that you used?I use regular Bondo All purpose fiberglass resin. Do you recommend some thing else?(2)Is the top of the box fiberglassed also? If so, is it fiberglassed inside the box, outside, or both?(3) By simply dropping resin mixed with hardner (of course) all over the bottom of the box with no sort of fabric still give it extra support/bracing or must you always use some sort of weave/fabric?(4) Do you know of some where online where I can purchase resin cheaper than what I can find it at HD? 5 gallons of resin at home depot I think would be around $145 or so just on resin.
