    Sand the areas where the bezelw ill meet the panel. Really rough them up. I would use your epoxy first to join the 2 pieces together. From here just as you said, duraglass for 75% of the structure and finish it off with rage.

    i would shape ur duraglass with 40
    as it shapes better then move to 60-80, then sand the rage with 80-120-220, then work your primer through 220-320-400

    Here are a few pictures of my dash I worked on last night. Im gonna do more tonight. I have a problem making the corners look even. I only put my first coat of the duraglas on though.

    Looking good.

    The best advice (which I had not mentioned yet) is to stay away from the inner portions of the bezel. They will eat you alive in frustration trying to get them straight again. I usually tape off the inner edges of the bezel so I will not mess with them, no body filler is needed in that area anyways

    As far as I am concerned, that came out great!

    You got to be proud of yourself that you did it yourself and saved $

    Job well done!

    I read your other thread that has all the worklogs and what not, and how your desire is to become a teacher! This is a prime example of your capability and how helpful you really are!

    NO HOMO though!

    hehe No Problem.

    Fully Understood!


    I should be there in less then a year now, but small fabrication work will always be a part of my life.

    I know it was hard for me to figure out in the beginning, so at the very least, I want to be as support to others.
