Well like it says. What would you guys do? I have an ext cab 94 with a custom box that I made under the back seat. It houses an upfiring 12w3 on the drivers side, and amp rack in the middle, and a stoarge bin on the passanger side. The orginal plan was to carpet it and call it good. Well its been sitting in the truck bare wood for the past few months. Im kinda throwing around the idea of rounding the edges, coating it with fiberglass and resin, and painting it body color. Just not sure what would look the best. Then if I decide to paint it, what paint would I have to use and would I have to use clear? Plus that would be a lot of work, but it would kill a lot of free time afterwork too. Maybe I should get a pic of it so ya all can see it first. But what do you guys think? Paint or carpet?

I'm going to wrap my sub box in extra Katzkin I have. I have Katzkin seats so I think the box would look good in Black Katzkin leather. As for yours i think the fiberglass is a good idea. It would look much smoother, go for the fiberglass.

bedliner works great, and is easy to do. Cans at walmart are around $8, and you would need a little less than 2 cans. If you're worried about mud on it, bedliner is your best bet. No scratching like paint will, and its easy and looks good. Thats how I do all my customers boxes now, in bedliner. All you do is sand it down with 80 grit, and spray it. It does not chip off easily also. One of my boxes went through hell, and never even chipped.
