My V.B.S.S build has started

Finally my build has started, but there is a gap on one of my panels, The gap can clearly be seen using a flashlight and a dark room. Need to make a lot of sawdust tomorrow to fix this

Not really an issue, just hit it with some PL or silicone.
Bondo or spackle works for finishing the outside.

I will most likely sand it down, the finish will be natural, so I am not able to use body filler. Orbital sander should make this an easy fix

Ahh, I thought you had already glued it.

Looks good. I was thinking about doing one or two VBSS. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Almost done, I know, I $uck at staining wood I might redo the finish when I have extra time, so far this works as most of the sides of the enclosure is hidden anyways, still need to make a grill to protect the sub driver
