Default building inside of trunk

who on here has built enclosures inside of their trunks?
Is it going to suck as much as I think it will?
I've got 2 15's in the mail and plan on sealing off facing forward tuned to 25hz ported through deck. Problem is box won't fit through opening so I get to build inside.
I'm using .75" solid aspen and using L brackets to fasten the panels. I plan on using fiberglass to hold the enclosure together.

I have. It's not hard, but it can be really frustrating. You'll probably need an angle grinder and hammer at some point because of something stupid that's like 1/4" off. I used angle brackets and glass at the seams, but if I had to do it again I would kreg jig it. Try to build as much outside of the car as possible.

I've only got to build a rectangular box since I'm using round ports. I'm mostly worried about the smell afterwards

cheaper since you wont need buy a bunch. stronger then a but joint and makes it very strong. you could use L brackets if you wanted but id personally use a ton of glue if you go that route

I won't be using any glue at all really.
I don't see how it will do anything after the inside is matted and glassed.
