    Thanks. I have been working on this project very slowly. I haven't had time to do anything to it. I just filled the bottom of the bezel yesterday and as you can seen in the pictures I still have to sand the second coat of plastic.
    The hole for the slot load dvdr is a little off centered but I will fix this if it really bothers me.

    The actual PC box still has to be carpetted. I will get to this later.

    Next up will be primer, texture paint and then low gloss.

    Sanded and ready for primer

    Well after a lot of sanding, putting plastic on, sanding, plastic, sanding, I've finally came to the point where I said enough is enough. This is my bezel ready for primer. Can someone give me some tips when using texture paint and low gloss paint(ie. How many coats minimum). A lot of times this bezel is going to be in direct sun when my roof is off so I want to make sure it doesn't start to come off. Anyway, comments would be appreciated.

    1st coat of primer

    Well the primer is bringing a lot of the imperfections out. The biggest being the difference between the soft rubbery material and the platic repair kit material. I will have to sand this down more to try and get it to match a lot better. Thus more sanding All in all, a better way to see the imperfections before i get to the finished product.

    Everything looked good until the primer. You ran into the same thing that I've run into for about 1.5 years now. On car models or anything that I use bondo on. How do you get rid of it!? anyone!!

    What I'm specifically refering to is the visual difference between the areas w/ bondo and the areas that don't have them on it. It's almost as if the ones w/ bondo are so much smoother then the ones that don't have the putty on it that when primer is sprayed it is super smooth where as the original surface isn't near as smooth.

    Any suggestions, I know it'll help dsballer and definately help me.

    Now I see the similarity when I did mine. Everything look perfect until primer.
    I hope you can overcome the problem and tell me the techniq so I can redo mine

    this is because you need to feather it more.... this is because you're using sandpaper that isn't course enough.... you should start your shaping with a real course grit, like 40.... then move on to finer paper.... by using to fine paper your not cutting enough to really even it out, it's more like your polishing than sanding.... hit that with some 80 to shape it flat... you may need a little more material to fill the transition... it looks too heavy of a line to just take down witrh primer alone... unless you can just even it out with the materail already on there....

    I put on a few more coats of primer and it seemed to have evened it out a lot more. I don't know if this was smart or not but it looks a lot better. I will post pictures after work.
    Turbocad, if I paint this with texture paint, will the little uneven spots still show up a lot? I guess without you seeing it you really can't determine this but I figured it would mask some of the little imperfections.

    to a certain extent it will mask it, but how much & what it looks like can't be determined beforehand... if you spray it & it looks like **** you'll create more work for yourself.....

    if you prime it a few times & then block it out you should be ok, basically your using the primer to fill the void.....

    I wouldn't paint it till it looked good before paint....
