yeah it comes in rolls about 6 inches wide, clean the areas you want to put it on with some spirit cleaner then cut pieces to fit and apply to area,a wall paper roller is a good tool to use. you can heat the stuff up with hairdrier or heat gun so it stickes nicely. :D let us know if you want to know anything else  :wink:

would look nice but still probably rattle from inside, plus if you've got big ice the filler will crack  :lol:

I never thought about that before. How shit would that be after you'd forked out loads on a quality flushing / respray job only for cracks to start appearing when you crank your sub-basses up?
I love my tunes, but I need to get my car going before concentrating on putting a system in it. Does anyone know someone who's had their boot flushed only for the filler to crack after cranking a big system?

I had my car done in 2001, flush doors and boot - totally professional job and (so far) hasn't cracked in 6 years.

if you put plenty of sound deadening on inside of boot you might get away with it but guarantee it.  :)

So guaranteed no cracking with sound deadening then? (or roof flashing?!) I suppose the more material you can get in the way to absorb the evil bass waves the less chance there'd be of your hard work going tits up. And hopefully the annoying rattles would stop as well.
The flimsy French build quality doesn't help either though, as don't the wafer thin panels. I bet there'd be minimal rattling with a BMW for instance, but who wants one of them?
I think there could be a fair bit of rattling as I'm planning 4 12" subs in one box. Kicker L7 squares for the same cone area as a round 15" but taking up less box space.

thats going to kick big time, dont think i would worry about the cracking. i would be more worried about the boot lid flying off :twisted:

Ahhh shit.. that did make me laugh!!
I don't think it'll be that bad... will it?! I've always been a basshead. I built a custom fit box for the boot of a mk.4 escort once with 2 15" Rockfords in. I made it as big as possibe so it used up all the available boot space.
It never actually ended up wired up in the car, and I only finally got it in there to shift it as I was moving house - and it turned out not to be such a custom fit afterall as the bloody bootlid wouldn't shut on it!
Still, before that I had it wired to a Pioneer hifi amp indoors and moved ornaments and stuff about in cabinets all over the place.
Anyway, back to the point I think 4 12s in a box would mean too big a box, unless I did away with the parcel shelf otherwise the top of the box would sit directly under the shelf and possibly muffle everything.
I dunno, I'll have to try it & see what happens I suppose.

That 2x15" box... I've gotta sell it to make some cash. It's a homemade box: 18mm ply.... fookin' huge, 2 15's flush mounted, fully trimmed in black velour, pro-build (weighs approx. 60kg) Would suit a big car 100 Any takers?!

you could port the parcel shelf that would look cool with some nice alloy or stainless vibe ports, you could also make box slightly smaller by making the front of the box in a w shape  :wink:

Try a bit of grease on the boot catch/lock. Mine used to squeak like mad!
