Took out the rest of the dash last night and got some epoxy laid out this evening. I ended up getting the 60 minute kind so it's still sort of hardening (the backdrop of the bezel). I'll end up getting it painted probably next weekend after I do some minor sanding infractions. Make the backdrop look smoother and all the good stuff.
One question, do you guys think it would look better if I just "bondo"ed the dash trim to the actual dash around it? that way I could cut back on a lot of the plastic internal working and fit more things for the computer or whatever else I plan to put back there.
