    that could definatley work, in your case a complete fiberglass new bezel can be a good idea, theres not much of the existing stuff that's usable for you anyway....

    turbo- You've seen my bezel, but the one I used with your method was for a 97' Talon TSI with an 8inch t/s monitor which I managed to sqeeze in pretty good. It came out like this, but I can't find the images of it painted. Cig. lighter was relocated to the side of that panel where the monitor was installed.



















    And a BMW 530 with a 7in Xenarc700TS. I used cardboard to support the back, then used the Urethane Bumper kit to fill in the rest. I don't have pics of the processes...but here is the result!
    NOTE: All that is there is the monitor, two pieces of thick cardboard that was hotglued to the monitor and then filled with the same stuff. two layers of cardboard was used on the botton half and then glued the wood trim pieces into place to match the rest of the dash!

    I'm looking at doing a similar build, and was wondering exactly how you apply the dynatron around the initial gaps (ie - the large arced gap between the screen bezel and the factory faceplate on the sides)? Do you apply it directly onto the tinfoil and then peel the tinfoil off the back once it has dried (15mins)?

    Thanks! :-)

    yes, the tin foil is like a mold of sort, it will contain the stuf till it hardens, the tin foil doesn't release as nicely as I would have liked, but on the back side it wasn't a problem

    I missed the post above yours, but primer I mean primer, I used a bumper primer for flexability & buildup, but a regular primer should do fine too.
