  • 2002 TT ZO6 Corvette Xenarc Install

    Decided to cut into the dash this weekend. I went everywhere looking for some of the recommended materials on this site.. could not find much locally.

    I ended up using the following.
    1. Dremel for all the cuts
    2. High Temp Hot Glue from HD - For plastic actually
    3. ABS/Acetone for filling in the back
    4. High Build Primer
    5. Bondo
    6. SEM paint and satin clear

    Have not painted it yet.. but it is pretty much ready













    Trying to decide if I am going to keep the ashtray or lose it and put something else there.

    Went though several iterations of prime, fill, prime, fill.

    Very happy overall for my first attempt

                  Finished up the bezel today. The SEM texture paint works even better than I had anticipated it would. It looks great in the car.

                      Thanks.. I took your advice too.. I have a black powermate here on my desk.

                      Pretty cool.. still playing with it.

                            Awsome job, that bezel looks great. Did you sand the original texture off the whole peice? If so, how well does the texture match the stock interior? I wound up trying to save most of the original texture on mine and blend in the new SEM areas. Thinking I caused myself more trouble than it was worth.

                            Another quick question, I see you other C5 guys attaching your screens to this bezel, there is not much support around the top, do you have any problems with the added weight? I attached mine to the frame using the original mount points and just install the bezel against it like stock. I think yours looks more finished. Although I also have the DVD drive attached to mine which would make it dificult.

                            Any way Great job so far!
