im not sure what ur ideals are for a box but buy some tinfoil and duct tape to put down wherever u need to make a mold so it wont stick to ur truck

forgot to mention theres no point in wasting resin/fibreglass in the sub opneing but make sure u put it on good where the shirt meets the MDF rings for ur speakers as u want to make sure it stick tothe wood good
i ahve more fibreglassing pics if u want some more

and check out this guys work on his Z24, he doesnt really go into much detail but just looking at teh pics helps alot
