Custom box with beauty board

What's up guys, I'm fixing to build a custom box in the trunk to house a 15 in L7. I want it to be the type where there's a wall that the sub sits in and it has the slits for the trunk hinges to go through simlar to what nittanys has


I'm not really sure how to make the box follow all the lines of the sides of the trunk. If anyone has any hints or tips, let me know. Thanks.

I have never built a custome box or anything, but I do have a suggestion. Use pieces of cardboard as templates, and cut them until they fit just they way you want it. Once they fit nicely, trace it onto MDF. Dry fit the MDF and then sand the MDF to a perfect fit. Keep in mind you may want to leave 1/4" (arbitrary number) for extraneous materials like fabric if you plan on wrapping your set up. Hope this helps.

Just a thought, have any 6th Gen AV6ers used fiberglass in their trunk? Personally, I prefer the look of a custom fiberglass setup to some mdf. Also, the limits of what you can do with fiberglass are almost endless.
