That’s dope. You should fill in them spots around the cutouts with comic strips and then cutout so it’s like the whole enclosure is covered in comic strips. Then put a “glaze coat” epoxy clear coat over it. Glaze coat is like a thick clear coat

Oh no those spots will be covered by the subs so no need to fill there. And yes I'm covering the box in clear epoxy today. I'm going to probably lay down 2 full coats of epoxy when I'm done.  The sides of the box won't get comic book covering cause:

1. I'm out of comics book materials and I refuse to buy expensive comic books to butcher up. I used cheap $5 Below/Dollar Tree comic books when I started this.

2. No one will really see the sides and back of the box once its in the truck and setup properly.

I upload my pictures to something I can get on my phone like Instagram, tumbler, Reddit. Then get on the computer and copy the link to each photo and paste it in here

 

Btw that box looks sick, I love the comic book look

Thanks for that suggestion.  I'll probably do that later on tonight. I have a ton of pics and I just can't attach them here cause of the size limits.

What type of clear epoxy did you use? Post a link. Did you run into air bubbles after applying?

I used a few of these kits here:

https://www.homedepot.com/p/FAMOWOOD-1-qt-Glaze-Coat-Clear-Epoxy-Kit-5050080/301826159

 

And I did have some slight bubbling, heat from my heat gun removed them without issues.  My torch removed the bubbles too, but if I would get too close it would start to discolor the comic material.
