I am wondering why the best current solution is for the tom trunk?

I destroyed my first replacement in about five minutes. Need another soon.

I know there was talk about a fully rubberized type trunk. What is the best option for theatre trunk replacement in today's market?

Thanks in advance!

What ever you get, put foam rubber between trunk and carriage it covers.

Great idea, there is to much space between the plastic and the inside frame it is just begging to be broken, Mine is already broken but I will smash it up good and proper before I replace with a new one

I got my replacement from Marcos which I think is supplier by PPS. Anyway it is rubbery in texture and I think will be hard to damage.

I believe there's a thread where people used some type of automotive repair fiber that makes the trunk 100% indestructible.

I lined the inside lower half of the trunk with fiberglass mesh and then coated the fiberglass mesh area with plastic weld Epoxy I did a few good thick coats and I've been bashing the hell out of it without any problems since

Bumping this thread up. Anyone else have any luck with the Marcos replacement? Or reinforcing the Trunk somehow? Any link on above mentioned automotive repair fiber?
