Another light spray and scrubbed it with a rag which got a lot of it off. I did not feel the need to get down to bare fiberglass as it was just going to get another coat of glue. Once you see the adhesive and trowel it on, you'll see what I mean. I just made sure it was smooth, no loose glue, and then vacuumed it thoroughly.. You can see a bit of the reddish glue material left on the sidewall and along the edge of the floor.

One more tip, make sure you get all of the carpet pieces for each side and the center panels turned the same direction off the roll. The 'lay' of the carpet will affect how it looks when down.
I think I was planning on over killing the sanding. I have one side smooth but there is still some witness marks of glue. You just saved me lots of time

I did not think this project was going to end between business travel and hockey practices. Here are some pics. As with every project I do......there was a bit of scope creep. I decided to add engine compartment insulation as well as a new sub and additional amp. This also added to the timeline.

probably not the right tool for the job but it was available and the right length.

I installed an additional MB Quart amp to drive my 10" Polk Audio sub

Just placed here. I need to mount.

Oh yeah, scope creep. The basis of MCOCD.
That looks like it came out really well. Wish I had that kind of room in my garage.
Love the smell of fresh carpet in the morning.

New carpet looks great. Which subwoofer box did you use? Looks compact. Debating whether to purchase or build one.

I put insulation from a hot rod shop as the liner. Basically it is a firewall material. i know other guys here put in other material much thicker but I'm really happy with the results. I bought a roll which was 4x8 for about $70.
All the material on my engine compartment was gone when I bought my boat so this was was a real improvement with a noticeable result.

I went with a sealed box because it was more compact. I had the same debate between building myself or buying, eventually went to a audio shop and bought a pre built box. I'm glad I did. I'm not an audio junky but the box sounds great. I mounted it just above the drivers foot rest, fit perfectly.
