    Not a Monitor, but still Fabrication! Accord Dual Gauge Pod, (nexson) 56k Warning

    Hey Guys!

    Coming to you with a Dual Gauge Setup on the Speedo Cluster.
    A little while ago I had done the single gauge setup, which can be seen here:
    http://v6performance.net/forums/showthread.php?t=90489

    This is pretty much the same setup, but with an added gauge.

    Here is the work thus far that I got done today. The next few days I will be doing a lot of sanding and shaping. I hope to be done around the weekend maybe.

    Enjoy!

            Hey Guys, coming to with an update from the past few days. Right now the project is at about 65% done and I have about 70% of the sanding behind me, (thank god).
            Anyhow from where I last left off I added 2 layers of 1.5oz mat which was more then strong enough. I also added a few more small layers to areas where they where low and need to be built up for shaping.

            In between all my glass coats I did the sanding of the fiberglass to get the cluster to be as perfectly shaped as fiberglass is going to be without filler. I went through about 3-4 sessions of glass and sanding, this was primarily the strength stage in the project.

            Next, (today) I moved onto the Duraglass, went through about 4-5 session of filling, shaping and sanding, sanding, and sanding and sanding and sanding, did I mentioned I had to sand lol. This is my least favorite stage but the most progressive one.

            From here, I move onto the top gauge which needed a little work to make it fit with no gaps, so I tapped off the gauge and added a little duraglass which gave me the look I was looking for.

            At this point I will spray some primer to show me my pits/pinholes etc, which I will then fill in with duraglass again, then anything small I will take care of with Xtreme and possibly spray with Slick Sand to fill in the vinyl texture once I have sanded it down.

            Enjoy.

              Update

              Well I am almost near the end.

              Since the last update, I have filled in some areas with Duraglass, then primed. I did about 3-4 sessions of primer-ing to see where I stand and where my defects are. Once I was done with the duraglass, I filled in a couple of areas that I wanted Xtreme to be filled in with because I just need a skim coat. Xtreme is the white-ish filler.

              After all that I sanded it down with 320 and then proceed to load the gun with Slick Sand which is an very high build primer, which I needed to fill in the original texture so a new fresh even texture can be sprayed over the whole project. I put the slicksand on heavy to fill in everything because most of it is coming off anyways.

              This is where I am at now, I am about 85% now.

                        Thanks Man, That facotry paint is a pain in the butt to work with because it sprays out and dries really rough so it must be sanded down correctly to leave a smooth finihs but not sanded down to much to loose the texture.

                        Really diffucult.
