I made my fiberglass enclosure too short, therefore I need to raise it up about 3/8" or so. Instead of using "all that" fiberglass, can't I just adhere a board (wood) to the bottom to raise it up?
If so, how?
Dumb question, right. ..just coat the board w/ resin & apply a layer or two of shredded fiberglass matt between the board and the fiberglass enclosure. Find something heavy & lay it over it so it smooshes the board and enclosure together.
Well, this is for another person & I don't want to f*ck it up. The bottom of the enclosure is bondo'd, but from my understanding both bondo and fiberglass are polyester so that shouldn't be an issue.
Drill holes in the board & than "route" the tips out & pour resin in them? It'd act like screws.
I just don't want the board all of a sudden one day vibrate off when he's jamin out to Eazy E.
Or should I suck it up & waste like a half gallon of resin and a lot of fiberglass matt to "raise" it up.
I'm off like 3/8" all around the enclosure. I know I have 1/8" or so give with the carpet alone, but can't I get like carpet padding or foam to put under so I can cheat it?
My problem is how would I adhere it? I have contact cement and 3M spray. Even if I can adhere the foam padding, how am I guna adhere to carpet to the foam?
I'm only "off" around the edges of the enclosure. Should I just cut strips of foam padding and run them around w/out adhereing them and just carpet normally, but don't put contact cement where the foam padding runs?
