Re: sub enclosure in spare tire well (Groomfoshiz)

There are two methods.
One keeps the spare and is a small enclosure, and the other uses the whole tub and allows for a lot more creativity.
Anywhere from a single 8" to a single 18" or a couple of subs in between can be fit.
You use fiberglass to make a mold of the area you want to fill. Then you use wood, or more fiberglass to complete the top of the mold. You need to build up the layers to at least 5 layers thick, sometimes more than 7.

Expect 1 gallon of resin and three yards of mat, just to be safe. It's cheap enough that you can always use the rest later if you need to.
I am very near you - just moved to observatory hill just off the perrysville exit on 279. If you're looking for someone to do it for you, or show you how, drop me a line.
