    Boot Build

    Hi guys have a coupe and 2 15" subs i wanna put in, now I was thinking of getting a sheet of mdf the same thickness they use for the boxes and putting it in so takes up half the boot prob half way onto where the wheel arch sticks into the boot now what would be the best way to fix it and seal the edges?

    If you cut it to fit really well by the time its all trimmed up in carpet it will wedge itself in and wont require any fixing! Alternitivley you could use some silicone sealant (not stikaflex or you'll never get it up again) which will stop it moving arond!

    hi mate.best way to get you curves right on the wood is to make a cardboard template and then transfer it on to the wood.
