    What filler to use?

    I'm trying to get my screen mounted indash. I've resized the screen's housing so it fits a double din mount:



    The front of the screen is glued to the doubledin and is very solid, the back of the screen also still fits (after resizing)

    I'm kinda stuck on what filler I should use to fill the gaps between the screen and the doubledin. I'd like to fill the gaps, sand it down and spray the whole unit in the color of my dash.

    Can you recommend me a product (filler) that is available in The Netherlands, I hear Bondo is good, but it's unavailable where I live... :/

    I reccomend this stuff x100. I use this almost daily in body shop. This stuff is very easy to apply, and sand. Regular bondo is extremly heavy and tedious, this stuff is a godsend. I reccomend this product hugely.

    ive heard good things about melted plastic using something like acetone... the result is easy to sand... search for the thread on here about solvents and adhesives... good luck..

    I've ended up using "Alabastine Polyester Plamuur" :


    Works like a charm, just need to fill the small holes with some filling primer.

    *nb screen is attached with 2 screws only, thats why it hangs a bit (pic 1&3)
