I made the car a 3 seater last summer as i wanted to make custom boxes.. She realy pounds.
Boxes without the tops on them (both sides are the same).
Fiberglass box tops
A layer of Light weight body filler was added to the top of the right one. More sanding is required at this point. The left one is still just sanded fiberglass.
The box tops are made to fit perfectly snug along the window line, giving the stereo & car a finished look.
Box tops in position with the amp rack in the middle of the rear seat between the sub boxes. The rack will now hold my capacitor and fuse block.
Box tops mounted. next step, sanding & filling for that smooth finish.
Cap rack from inside the boot. I've left enough material so I can attach it to the back of the box tops once done from the front, to give the back a nice smooth finish.
Box to the point of priming. The right ones in spot putty but the left is primed. Still have to sand the cap holder.
Box's primed and painted.

Well I spent all last weekend doing the fiberglassing and it is to the point where I can gel coat it. I'm going to wait and spray everything at once.
I did the fiberglassing in 3 stages so I could reinforce it adequately from the inside.
The frame made and attached to the base glued and fiberglassed the joints from the inside. Far right front being covered in Polyester Fabric.
