Fist you need to find out how much air space you need for each speaker thats going in the box then you will need a frame something light but durable you can get sound board from lowes thats wat you need to start with and when your mixing your hardener and fiber glass mix only a small amount at a time just a little hardener add to much and it will dry immediatly if you mix a lot of it at once you will waste most of it do it during the day it needs to be around 60 degrees to get it right

Epoxy floor is not drying in some places it has been a few days still has a few spots not drying Paint was mixed well what can I do?

although its not widely known , but two part epoxy paints have a resting period they need to have after there mixed vigorsly together , the label should denote how long this time should be , its usually about five minutes or so , this rest is nessacary for the two chemicals to adsorb into one another (prevents bubbles too), floors that don't harden , well theres one sure fire way to fix em , use solvent and remove non hardened paint with old rags (lots of em) but sometimes if only slightly sticky then you can go over them with a fresh batch (using proper mixing methods ) the new paint will encapsulate the old paint and harden over it

Bubbles after 24 hour cure

I recently covered a wooden chair in epoxy resin. It is the nature of the product to create bubbles as it hardens. The directions stated to gently blow on the bubbles as they formed. Check it often and blow on any bubbles that form in the first 45 minutes after application. This worked quite well for me. Be sure to wipe up any drips in that first 45 minutes too, they are a pain to sand when they are dry!

Get some araldite (epoxy resin) mix equal quantities of the resin and the hardener and somehow glue it together. This stuff is strong once dried and is heat resistant and as far as I know...non-toxic once dried.

It will be a bit fiddly though, and you should use a little hand held clamp to keep the pieces together as tightly as possible until it hardens.

What is the cubic feet of air space

it's a measurement used to describe the empty air inside an enclosure. When you build a speaker enclosure, such as for two subs, u build it to fit the componets air space recomendations. keep in mind anything inside the enclosure like braces or the magnet part of the speaker will deduct from the measurment.

I've been told by a plumber that the tubing to the jet is leaking

You could try Plumber's epoxy stick or paste if the leak is not to big!
The stick has the resin & hardener already in it. The paste you would have to mix equal amount together. I would recommend the paste because it would probably stick to the surface better for you application! Available at Lowes.

Car dashboard

yes but mostly it needs to be done by dash tech recommended or apolstry shop <<< spell check

but here are the steps
remove dash place out of sun
mix batch of heat resistant resin
apply resin to dash the whole dash make a little thicker on dash
let dry
now when dried and hardened after 24 to 48 hours you take a sanding block and sand down smooth with sand paper then repaint with color dash that was before

you can use this same resin to also fill in the cracks of dash but you will still have to sand and repaint the area you just applied the heat resistant resin too this is called touch up the dash

dont use a power sander on this type of project you could damage your dash permanently
