Fabricating My New 1999 300M Bezel?...WORKLOG !!
I am new to this Car PC thing, but I'm off to a good start. Found out that my current in dash monitor would not do the job because it was not a vga monitor, so text would be crappy. So I removed the miscellaneous blank cubby holder then moved the Climate Controls in my 1999 300M down to the bottom above the ashtray and moved the radio down a little above that to make room for my monitor. Decided to avoid flip out monitors because of all the problems I've read about on Mp3Car. I've gotten ideas on how to make the bezel by reading Turbocad's threads(he is definitely a master at this!). My question is this...Will dynatron 660 adhere to whats left of my existing bezel in order to fabricate a new one, or do I need to do a fiberglass job? I want to keep the existing bezel I've cut out because of the snaps on it that will hold the bezel in place. I've read that a lot of epoxy type fillers don't adhere well. Once I've figured out how to fabricate the bezel, I should be in bizness!!! I don't have the tools for plastic welding!!!!....Thanks for all ideas in advance!!!!!
PS:Here is a pic of my 300M(gotta fix the dented rear passenger door, but thats another project)...And a pic of my progress so far with the climate control re-location and stereo moved down. As you can see, now I have room for a 7" monitor(plan to use the bracket to hold the monitor)...But I want to use whats left of the bezel to fabricate a new one that will snap into place like the original did!!!
