You can't get the best result with the first coat of bondo. THere is always holes and gaps to be filled. So i applied the second coat and this time it looks smoother and will be easier to sand. After sanding it down, there will be smaller holes to be filled and spot putty will do the job. Than lil more sanding and ready to paint.




And this black thing will be the tube protector, It will cover the tubes which comes out from the 2 holes in the radiator box and goes into the case from the side panel. Also the part where the tubes connects to the pump.



more will be coming

OK Here is another update, final coat of bondo. When it dries i will start sanding with 150grit sandpaper and will go:
220, 320,400,600,800,1000,1500,2000

(you don't really need to use all of these. 220,400,800,1500 would be enough)

I didn't know anything about this stuff before my project and there is not much to learn. Just know how to mix enough hardener with bondo. Sand the surface a bit (use 80grit sandpaper) and make sure there is no paint on the surface. Apply the first coat (i use my hands) Sand it down (80grit), do another coat sand it down(80 grit). If the result is ok ( i mean if u dont have any uneven parts and big holes) than apply the spot putty for the whole surface (thin layer) This will cover the lil holes. Finally, use your sand papers start with 150 or 220 than use higher grits. U can use my pics as a reference.
If you have any questions just ask. I will be happy to answer them...

And thanks for your comments...

WOW you just tought me how to bondo.... Rusty car, here i come!!! LOL

You do really great work man, and have a taste bar to none! Man, what if you sold the finished case and started a custom modded case buiseness... that would be shaweet!

AS druid asked, what fans are you going to use? Some high flow fans or the turbine fans. I personally think you should just mod a good high flow fan to look sorta like one of the turbine fans...

I am working on the side panel now (w/ side window) i wont be using the stock window. I bought 1/4" thick plexiglass and cut it.

I made the part where the tubes going to go thru the side window. This is how it looks before and after the second coat of primer.




This is a sketch of how the side panel going to be...

The part installed to the side panel frame.


Next, plexiglass will be cut and installed.


And here is the side panel of the radiator box after the first coat of primer. I will wet sand it and spray 2 more coats of primer than wet sand more and finally paint it..
