Most people making fiberglass spare tire well boxes duct tape the crap out of it, then wax it with car wax, then start laying the material. Once you ad resin the material will kinda stick to the sides. {wax and all} You have to do it in thin layers until some of the resin sets up. Then make your baffle panel and add it while the resin is still somewhat wet. Then after it drys continue adding material and resin until you are happy. {try to get all the material to lay down.. any sticking up will be as sharp and as strong as a fishes fin}

If you have a fabric store near, burlap is cheaper than Fiberglass and just as strong when resined.

[The wax acts as a release agent so the basin is easily removable. if you don't care about that, you can skip it and the duct tape.]

well when I did mine in my mustang I had enough room to use 1/4" plywood and make a box in side the tire space then glass on that to make it stronger

I made one for a Cavalier which was half in the spare tire well. Basically it was 6" above the well full width of the floor and like 6" in the well. It was for one 15" eclipse. It worked great and would have looked almost like it wasn't there if they hadn't wanted the box covered in Holstein cow print faux fur.

no resin on that one though. it was all 3/4".

would i just keep the resin and mat thinner in that area so it doesnt mess up the dimensions or make the flush mount a little wider to accomodate the fiberglass?

no make the flushmount area wider to accommodate the fleece and resin go 3/16 of an inch larger than planned flushmount cutout diameter.... should be fine
