Wow never thought of that, already drilled half the holes(3), i did a quick drawing on how it would weaken the frame as least as possible. Its a thick frame so i think i'll be okay. But i really like the fiberglass idea. I'm pretty good with fiberglassing, built a few sub boxes and what not. But how would i go about fiberglassing the frame and keep it so that the wires can still move? Would the rubber casing keep them from being restricted? I'll probably end up just refilling the holes with some JB weld. the fiberglass will make it stronger than factory even with the holes
