    Well if you hand sand, it will get a better look. And I learned from the best bondo expert I have ever seen GoHybrid, that if you sand it when it is not completely dry yet it is easy to rough shape and not tiring. it took about 10 minutes for the bondo to get to the sanding consistancy we needed. Check out my worklog for the pics if you want. The entire thing from me arriving in his shop to me leaving was about 6 hours including dinner. ! He is a master, and whatever he did, it works and still looks great. just mine and his 2c.

    Ok, i have finished the bezel now. I used bondo as my filler and it turned out pretty good i think. It's not perfect perfect, but i like it. I then painted it with 2 coats of semigloss black, and then 2 coats of flat black. This made the finish almost identical to my stock dash.

    Here are some pictures of the completed dash:

    Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.

    I also have the entire computer up and running in my house. The only thing that hasn't gone as planned is that i can't get the bluetooth dongle to connect to my phone as a headset. It will only use the DUN bluetooth profile. I have tried to install the widcomm drivers, but to no avail. Otherwise i am very happy with the rest of the system.

    wow...I completely forgot about this thread.

    I bought mine on ebay for pretty cheap. As I remember, there are quite a few vendors you can buy them from on ebay. If you live in the states (which I do not), you can use the ebay express store.
