    Cool first shot at the screen

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the time to look at this.,
    http://triton.towson.edu/~jlakha1/screen/s1/

    please make any comments and give any ideas...

    The pictures are for the first attempt, of bondoing the scree frame to the vent, any ideas/comments would be great.

    I am planning on doing a sanding saturday and then aother layer of bondo for evenness, wherever needed then, sand some more and then primer by saturday night.

    ideas / comments please....

    thanks

    ok, what ideas do you have, i didnt care to make it recessed or not, just wanted it to fit properly, without cutting out the dash, thats the best way i could come up with. I could have done it on the outside but i didnt want it sticking out.

    Also if i cut the top and bottom part of the vent' to make the screen fit it still is a little taller so i'd have to cut the top or bottom of the dash to make it fit.

    thanks for the input. and keep it flowing.

    keep sanding and filling. Use a lightweight glaze once you almost done to get rid of any pin holes. think of the first primer layers as a filler. Wetsand it down with 600-800grit

    keep up the good work. It is really comming along. Use a block sander or attach the sand paper to something flat so you get all of your lines nice and straight
