    Giving a bump to the mustang crew, had to pull this one up for some reading. Still waiting to see those sub enclosures finished up Mr Pyros. Also it was rather funny seeing how noob I was about a year ago. Thanks for the patience on your end, Pyros.

    Not too sure.... gonna try a few different things and see what i like... one will be redoing the existing radio bezel b/c the bloody thing cracked on the edge where the screen meets the bezel (thanks bondo!). Might try to make a mould of the bezel as it is now and take it from there... we'll see.. lots of options :P

    Just too throw in my $.02 pyros, I'm in the process of re-doing my cobra's bezel for the same reason. This time around I decided to go the duramix route. Right now it looks promising, but if you decide to try duramix, do yourself a favor and opt for the 4041 instead of the 4040 that is often recommended. The 4041 is the same as the 4040 except it has a a longer work time. 4041 has a work time of 2 minutes where as the 4040 has a work time of only 50 seconds. That added time will allow you to shape it a little more to minimize sanding. Sanding this stuff is a bit harder than sanding bondo IMHO, so keeping it to a minimum is a good thing. So far I really like the duramix, but it is a little trickier to work with than bondo. Also a little expensive if you opt to buy the dispenser instead of rigging one of your own. Just some food for thought if you were considering it.

    I also thought about repairing my last bezel and then making a mold of it and reproducing it, but be warned, it's a costly proposition. You'd have to make a 2-part mold and because of the intricate shape, it would actually take alot of material to make the mold. You could keep the cost down a little by removing the vent ducts before molding though. That way it would be a shallower mold, thus significantly reducing the material needed. If you could find enough demand for premade bezels though it could pay off. Again just my $.02.

    Thanks for the info Kevin. I'll definitely look into the duramix stuff. I have somewhat ignored it since my install was done.. but it looks like that's changing now

    Thx,
