    what to use to mold a slimline slot cd/dvd..??

    what would be my best options for molding a slim line slot load dvd player in my dash. i know that its really small to work with and i dont want to use something so messy that it will get in the slot, and buttons, and the face plate wont be able to clip back onto the dvd player again. i know there are some fiberglassing experts here that could give me some good suggestions... thanks in advance!

    i have bad news for myself... somehow the factory plastic piece warped, and now wont go back into the hole i took it out of... whats funny is that, i left the piece in there while gluing in the drive and whatnot...but now something went funky after i took the piece out and its not going back into place... any ideas? is there an easy way to break off plastic epoxy?

    I have a nice Lite-On SDW 200-DX DVD R/RW you can have for the $75 I paid for it. Never used it just picked it up for a decent price and figured I could mold it in someone's dash someday.
