    Well... I started this about a month ago and haven't done anything since... I don't know if I ruined the bezel and casing or not.. Hopefully I can get some pointers.. I used All Purpose Bondo and some fiberglass cloth.

    Quit with the fiberglass. The resin is too much for your bezel. Certain plastics are not compatible with resin. It appears that your plastic is not. If the screen is securely mounted, then just switch to a body filler and smooth it all out with sandpaper. If its not secure yet, get a strong epoxy to secure it. Then do the filler. Don't worry, when your working with this stuff, anything can be fixed. Just may take longer. Be patient. Start with an 80 grit paper. Once you get the contour right, switch to something like 220. And that should be smooth enough for paint.

    It's very secure on there.. I did get some bondo body filler. Someone told me that's just for pin holes though? How about for the very last pic. You see the bottom right corner right by the "Xenarc".. I sorta got some bubbles goin on there and even a small hole... Will that body filler work in there?

    Thanks for the reply!

    The hole's not that large. It will work fine. If the bubbles are taller than the service your trying to create then youll need to sand them down with 40 or 80 grit.

    when i get those pic of my install it will clear things up alot for you. as far as the recess idea(i know its in the past but id still like to comment on it) recessing will limit how much of that screen you can see and touch. You have to remember that on a PC alot of the buttons you need to press are around the outside edges(X, Start menu, task bar...) and its nice to be able to easily see and get to those if need be.

    again refering back to my other project it will show you how i first used fiberglass body filler for strength and then just bondo to smooth it all out and then sand for a very long time(i used a small profile sander to get the bulk of it)

    Right now looking at your pictures id say just start sanding, then use some simple bondo body filler(mine was a gray color and adding the red hardner makes it pink) there are other types as well though.

    Ill get some pics soon i hope, good luck with that

    I'm in the process of using body filler. I've put on two "coats" if you will. Here are some pictures. I'm wondering what to do about the little valleys that have formed. They were there on the first coat and I tried sanding them out. They didn't sand out so I put another coat on and I couldn't get them sanded out again. I'm wondering if I should do a third coat and see if that will work. Let me know what you think:

    frst off, you aren't putting iton very smooth to begin with and you aren't sanding NEARLY enough off of there .

    Two coats is not even close to what a lot of people do....try 5-8 coats.....lots of sanding.

    You haven't even begun to get to the finish stages....

    That's why I'm asking holmes.. I've never done it before..

    What do you use to apply it smoothly?

    Thanks for the help.
