Thank you for all the kind comments!

Its the weekend so I should be able to get some work done. I top-coated the top slider piece with more body filler last night and let it cure. I made a sanding block by cutting 4 pieces of cardboard (thanks newegg lol) and taping them together. I didn't feel like paying $5 for a dense foam block. I'll start sanding down the bondo with some 120 grit paper.

I tape the sandpaper to the sanding block after pulling it tight. This should give me a nice even finish I hope.

img0207f.jpg

After sanding with the 120 grit sandpaper, I wipe the piece clean and use some spotfiller/primer for one last filler coat.

img0208vk.jpg

Spot filler cured-

Then I sand again with 400 grit to prep for primer.

img0212o.jpg

White primer applied-

I noticed a couple defects in the door when I wet-sanded the paint...

img0205hq.jpg

...so I took it down and sprayed it again with some more primer.

More to come! Thanks for looking!

Absolutely fantastic.... I how you're doing extensive body work on a case with this much plastic in it. Most modders HATE the stuff. Kudos.

I dont really like the plastic, but sometimes you have to deal with what you're dealt. I would prefer solid aluminum, but it would be alot heaver and I would have used alot more dremel blades haha

I have to figure how to attach the mesh. I'm thinking silicone caulk. What would you guys use?

I have got the top slider painted-

I also polished the edges of the side door window, even though you wont see the edges when its installed rolleyes.gif
I used 220, 400, 800, and 1500 grit sandpaaper then rubbed it hard with some Brasso on a rag. Its nice and smooth-

What would you guys use to attach the mesh to the plastic?

I also painted the plastic part of the door black again. It's looking good now.
Thanks for looking and your comments and suggestions are welcomed and apprieciated-

More to come!
