Hello again!! Today was a big day as i did made the holes for the wheels, painted the case and glued the first two pieces of the logo to one side panel!!

So, first things first, the day doesn't begin without a cup of coffee so lets proceed!!

Here i took the already existing holes and widen them for the rivets to fit properly!!

So, next i took the side panel i had it cure over night from fiberglass repair and did a slight repair also today!!

Furthermore, i glued the first two pieces of the game's logo where they should be placed on the side panel!!

So, i took the pieces and sanded them down a bit to roughen its surface for the fiberglass to stick better!!So, next i took the side panel i had it cure over night from fiberglass repair and did a slight repair also today!!

Then i made some fiberglass mixture with some silicon and thinned it with aceton so i can process it longer!!

Using that stick i spreaded the fiberglass where it should be placed and sticked the logos!!

It doesn't matter if the liquid exceeds the drawing as it will be painted so it will match the front panel and the inside!! The crackle effect will remain in some areas to show that both painting techniques are used!! The post will continue next!!
