    While we are at it, you mentioned that Bondo is not that good of a brand, is there any thing you recommend? My bodyshop friend get way too protective when I ask those questions, and no, I did not see any Bondo in his shop either. Thanks
    Yup same thing. And Bondo brand is the worst filler you can buy.

    Tried RC store, he carried Microballons, but was out of stock. Finally found Cab-o-Sil locally. About 5 miles out of town there was a place that repairs boats. An actual "Garage" (so to speak), not a supply store. They filled a coffee can up with Cab-o-Sil for 5 bucks...

    Altimat... Say I have a Cup of resin/hardener. about what ratio of Cab-o-Sil do I want to use. Im looking for a peanut butter or slightly thicker

    I just add the stuff until its about the thickness I want. Add the hardener after mixing in the cab-o-sil or you may run out of time depending on the cure time of what you're adding it to. Don't make it any thicker than you need it to be.

    The progress is looking good. You gen 7 guys have it so easy

    Just kidding. Good to see it going to plan without too much cutting up of the outer surround.

    Question Easier way?

    Why don't you use a sprung loaded pivot on the base of the screen with a small arm on the lid so that when you open the hatch the screen rises up a la james bond! Then when you close it it lies back down again. No cutting of the screen casing and no voiding of the warranty. Might well work for you.

    Original plan didn't look good. There may have been barely enough room to fit the LCD module (takin out of casing) inside the hatch, but it was too close to call. And that would leave no room for making its fitment inside the hatch look attractive... So I ditched the idea and cut the hatch out. I may revisit the hatch idea at a later time.
