uhh fiberglass or something to that effect
I've already found a way to make an 01-04 Mustang bezel fit in a 94-98 Mustang(click here). I've decided not to use the buttons at the bottom. Now I just need to know the best way to fill in the holes...
Here is the bezel:
Would primer cover the fiberglass and blend everything in before I paint it? Or would I need to cover the fiberglass with Bondo, then paint?
I'm really looking for a step by step kind of answer, and I'm hoping I won't have to do any fiberglassing...
You can avoid fibreglassing by using an epoxy. Most are nowhere near as odiferous as polyester resin, and they will chemically and mechanically bond to your plastic piece.

Actually I bet you they make factory blanks for those holes, you might want to get the dealership/internet/junk yard... Save you some sanding and painting time...

thats what i was thinking.. but even if u couldnt find it i'd just hot glue wood to the back of the bezel to close then holes then fill with epoxy. I would PROBABLY go with a few top layers of bondo to get a smooth and even curvature... bondo is easier to sand than epoxy.
I would first use a course bit of sandpaper to scratch the inside of the holes which would allow epoxy resin to bond too.. cover the back of the hold in masking tape, then say half fill the hole with resin, let it set and then remove the masking tape or cut off the excess then just use normal filler on top to fill the rest of the hole up.. bit of a sand and spray and jobs done :-)
Kind of off the subject, but why not getso button to fill the button holes. I'm sure you can use them for something
