  • Which way to go...

    I've trimmed my Lilliput bezel to fit. There is unfortunately an area either side of the bezel that needs to be filled. So I'm toying with two ideas. A. Incorporating the bezel into the radio fascia or B. Mounting the bezel to the dashboard and filling the fascia. My questions is, how do I fill that small area either side? The plastic is fairly thick and I doubt I'd be able to find something similar in hardware shops.

    Just send it to me and I will finish it for $150.

    If you don't use the correct materials, then it will just crack.

        Send it ti Nexson, his work is first rate. This way you can concentrate on the rest of the install.

          Thanks for the support guys!

          This is too easy let go. I tend to stay away from the technical jobs lol.

            I've read a few posts regarding cracking. Do it once, do it right! Unfortunately $150 what it would cost me to send.

            Been looking at Plastex on Youtube. Not available down here that I can find.

            Rest of the install is all but done. Wires are all in. PC is in the boot and removable. Just want the fascia to be right and as we all know, that's what we are looking at all the time, it has to be right.

            Thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to mount the screen bezel to the dash. Then I'll make the hole in the fascia and have the two separate.

                  What kind of plastic is it? If it is ABS, you can make a paste using ABS scrap & M.E.K. It's not the easiest method, but it will make a permanent, non-cracking filler for those gaps. There is a thread here about liquid ABS that may be worth a read. If it is PPE or PE, then there is no solvent that will melt it

                    It's a mixture of materials. I think I'll finish the install, leave the fascia until last. Spent a couple of hours today trying to get the bezel at the right height and centred.

                      It says on the back ABS/PC so an ABS polycarbonate 'blend' I assume.

                        That should dissolve in MEK... give it a try... get some ABS plastic, cut it to fit thegaps and use MEK to "glue" it in place
