You would have to rough up the plywood with 36-80 grit sandpaper and buy lots of fiberglass filler(Bondo glass or something similar). Make sure that there aren't any holes for water to seep through. Sand that smooth if desired. Just make sure that when sanding fiberglass you wear proper protective clothing. If you breathe in a lot of the dust or get it on your skin you'll be itching and coughing for a long while... Also you could line the inside/outside ot he enclosre with fiberglass cloth and resin. If you line the outside though you would want to remove the wood framing so it doesn't rot. You would then have something much like a vision cage. These are just a couple ways it can be done. I'm sure there are others on the forum who have other suggestions that are probably more efficient than mine.
