Three days later, any update?

I've been thinking of glassing a box for my car but do not have the time to follow the project through unless it's a 3 hour job.. My 30 minute jobs turn into three hours for various reasons so I doubt I could glass a box in any amount of time 😆

If I could possibly give any advice, anywhere you could get resin on will get resin on. Your tape up looks professional

I would round a little bit those right angles and roundover them, so mat will lay better on thet wooden template. maybe use some ALU foil over the taped off areas, so you wont have hard tome to remove mold from the car.
make some more protection of the car arround the working area if you accidentally spill your resin,....newspaper, cardboare, polivynil,...enything will bebetter than nothing

Chris12 did project similar to yours not too long ago, you might check his work.....

Looks pretty good, how many layers is that?

If you have trouble pulling that mold out, drilling a hole in the bottom and hitting it with an air compressor can really help loosen it and get it out, then just patch that hole with some more glass

Only 2-3 layers maybe it was hard to do around the cup holder part because I F’ed the mold up so I’m gonna do a few layers in the garage on horses.

Just did a quick seal along the bottom edge and a full coat of resin on the whole bottom. Tomorrow I’m doing more layers on the inside then it’s time to get the subs in
