    91 Toyota Supra Fabrication

    After reading this forum for almost a year now I've decided its time to just go for it and start my fabrication. I've heard about all the hard times this bezel has been with other users so I wasn't really excited about trying.
    The screen I decided to fabricate is the ever so popular xenarc 700tsv.
    At first I was going to use the bondo method but decided to try something different because Matrix told me about his cracking in different weather conditions. I'm in Canada so we have crazy weather with hot summers and super cold winters. For this reason and after reading a lot of threads, I've decided to use a method mentioned by Turbocad which is the Plastic repair kit method.
    I have never fabricated anything and I am new to this whole thing. I was told to get a professional to do it because I'm not experienced in this but I want to prove them wrong so it begins.

    This is the bezel and screen and xenarc shell I'm working with. The bezel says PP+PVC on the back.

    Notice the rubber like outter material. This is the pain in the *** material that has been causing problems for most of the supra fabrications so I'm crossing my fingers

    For some reason my camera didn't keep the pictures of the first layer of plastic. But after applying, sanding and sanding, and some more sanding and more applying. This is the results so far. I applied a little more over the imperfections but have yet to sand it down. It was getting cold outside so I had to clean up. I will sand this down tomorrow.
    This stuff is very easy to use. It applies on thick and hardens in 10-15 minutes. Sanding is a breeze and very forgiving.
    These are the results of about 2 hours worth of work. I'm pretty happy with it so far.

    Filling in where the cig lighter was took the most applying and sanding. As you can see I have a lot more sanding to do tomorrow.

    Lookin good so far. I went with the abs sludge method and am waiting for my newest coat to dry. Seems to take about 12 hours to fully harden and I have no clue how hard it will be to sand. If I ever venture into this again im gonna try your method because I am very impatient hehe.

    Ya this method was great for no wait times. I could have sanded right after i applied the last coat if it wasn't so damn cold outside.
    12 hours to wait would be way too long. Oh well, hope yours is worth the wait.

    I'm using 120grit on mine but like i said, this stuff is very easy to sand. I've never done anything like this before so I'm learning as I go.

    More Sanding

    As you can see, I sanded down the extra plastic I put on yesterday. I need to go to the hardware store and grab higher grit sand paper and some paints.
    I still haven't decided what will go at the bottom but I'm thinking a slot load DVD burner and usb ports as well as relocating my cig lighter down there.
