    You are much better off using the epoxy instead of hot glue. Hot glue will release if it gets hot enough......seen it happen. There is a product called Duramix you should check out. It is designed to repair plastic which means it is designed to bond to plastic. You should use the Duramix or epoxy to bond the two pieces and as a filler. You can rough that up and then use a body filler to smooth it. Getting the panel smooth and looking good is not the the hard part. Getting the panel to be strong and have proper adhesion is the hard part. Make sure you scuff up all the areas the epoxy will be touching or glue. Making deep scratches in the plastic is like having a bunch of little finger holding your adhesive in place.

    ^^^thanks! I scrapped the removable LCD idea. Now I'm going to be bonding the LCD to MDF board.

    Which grit sand paper should I use to sand the bondo body filler?

    That depends on what you are trying to do. I use 80 grit to get the proper shape....rough in work. Then I go to 320 for a smooth finish. I always prime my pieces with a high fill polyester primer which then gets wet sanded with 600 for a very smooth finish.
