  • Monitor fabrication quues

    Hi there, I got the replacement radio facia and cut it up a little to have the screen in the position i'd prefer.


    I'm now needing to fill in the space around, which is the best way to do this?

    I also wouldn't mind recessing the screen or something. Or creating a shutter or something to hide the screen.

    please help, thanks

        It wasn't me, it was Alti. But most people use Bondo for the small stuff, fiberglass bondo for bigger stuff.

                just normal body filler, but use the flexible stuff for best results, i also used small bits of perspex on the larger holes to add abit more rigidity to it. Also when you prime use filler primmer as that helps cover up the little blemishes that are left after sanding. good luck with your project

                    featherweight is the best for stuff like that. As Altimat mentioned the evercoat stuff is awsome, but you do not have much work time, 5 minutes tops. But then you can just sand it down and go at it again. The stuff sands brillantly.
