  • First attempt at fab

    Hey guys...this is my first time doing anything like this so dont be too nasty. I am mounting an 8" screen in the dash and smoothing the leather look on my center console...at the moment the bottom is almost ready for primer but the screen surround is still only in fibreglass. Let me know what you think and give me any tips to improve it...

    One of the best way to learn is making mistakes, But much better when you learn from someone else mistakes

      the center console looks pretty close, but keep sanding that bezel. keep it up!

        after you get close, get some filler, and add some resin to it, so it will be like an oil paint, and apply it with the brush, sand again.

        if you still have dings, you can go with spray rattle can of filler primer i think it's $5.00 in pep boys, will prime your console spotless

                  Not bad for a first timer but it looks like you used duraglass. That stuff is far to hard for fast sanding try using usc Kromate it's ligh and fast sanding, then shoot several coats of prime or feather fill sand and finish with color or choice of cover.

                      good job so far.

                      I assume you are still sanding that LCD bezel ?

                          Well the bottom is painted...just needs a light sand and then lots of clear...


                          And the bezel is getting there too...
