    My Camaro Radio Bezel Fabrication Picture Diary (56k warning)

    Well, I had been posting progress on a Camaro message board and it just doesn't get as much interest as I figured it would here haha, constructive criticism is welcome just don't flame please. This is my first ever try at fabrication of any kind, as well as fiberglassing and what not. Anyway, below are the pictures, each has a name that you should be able to get a basic idea of what it is from the name, if not the picture.

    Next up will be of course applying resin, and then fiberglassing it. So far I'm not really liking the shape, but unfortunately there's not too many ways to fit a 10.5" touch screen into a 94 Camaro radio bezel.

    lol truthfully I have no clue, that's why I did some balsa wood frame on the outside to hopefully have it adhere to that, once it takes shape and form I plan on just dremeling most of that out and building up layers on the outside

    fiberglass resin will stick to plastic like crazy. It'll firmly attach to the bezel.

    an average undershirt. 100% cotton, which I know isn't the most recommended fabric since it absorbs the most, but I don't mind having to use more resin to get the job done. I'm VERY anxious to get going on the resin part and get this in my car.

    Well, I have gotten quite far in my fabrication. All that's left is final shaping and smoothing, primer, and paint. I have to say this was the easiest project for how difficult I originally thought it'd be. Of course... I haven't test fit it yet either.
