Default loose panel help

The exterior baffle on my double baffled box apparently wasn't screwed enough or glued to the one under it at all. I'm about to start my first fiberglass project on a set of mids in my center console, could I just use resin between the baffles and then mat and resin around all exterior joints to ensure this doesn't happen again? Or resin and mat between the baffles, or just a garbage idea?

I have no wood glue and am incompetent enough that I don't want to screw into my box. I didn't build it for a reason. Using the fiberglass materials would be cheapest and easiest with all things considered IF it will actually be helpful. Any input appreciated.

For the record the baffle under the loose one seems to be entirely secure and intake so there should be no air leaks. Fiberglassing the exterior corners would just be a Better safe then sorry I think. But since already going to have the supplies out I'd like to use. Pretty isn't the concern here whatsoever BTW


In case it matters. Below is the box in question. Bottom baffle is screwed through the side panels every 6-8" but top only has a screw in each corner holding it to the bottom one.

Going to work in 3 hours, stopping by Walmart when I'm off in middle of night to pick up my fiberglass supplies. A confirmed Yay or nay on my plan before I leave would be awesome if possible.

No smart phone, so once i leave the house I'm offline lol

Screws is your best bet. Will take fiberglass atleast a week to dry/harden enough to hold it to the strength you need it to all alone. If you aren't in a hurry to get the install going go for it!

hrm. The install is already going, but just noticed this loose panel the other day. A week of down time may be doable vs conquering my fear of splitting wood and completely ruining the box.

Guess the decision comes when i found out how tiny my check is lol. Thank you very much, wasn't aware of the Week + cure time needed

I'd squirt as much glue inbetween them as possible and use screws to clamp them back together
