    Cool, I didn't know flex seal was available in white.

    I think on FB you had said this beauty was 8 ft x 4 ft x 3 ft for each level?

    How much Flex Seal did you use to coat the two levels? A single 1 gallon can or more?

    I ended up using about 1.5 gallons to coat everything. I think you could get away with just a gallon if you're planning to apply reflective material over it, I just added a few extra coats to make sure there was no wood grain visible at all. Since I designed this to truly be a display, I figured a white background would be a bit nicer to look at than highly reflective foil lol

    The shelves are indeed both 8' x 4' but the top shelf has more vertical room than the bottom shelf. I figured it would be good to have a little extra height up top so stuff could vine.

    I really like this setup. It's very organized and clean. It'll be cool to see the same picture taken in 6/12 months.

    Thanks Mike, yeah I like the white too, very clean and white is actually said to better at reflecting than silver. I did my enclosure with the silver coated construction foam since it's at least more reflective than the pink foam. But your new setup is giving me ideas for the next builds!
