So I needed work on the front.................with bondo

Image

I prepped my mesh

Image

Before I painted and bolted it on I needed to cut out the Power and Reset buttons

Image

Here's how it's going.

Image

Then I painted and added the rivets

Image

Then I cut out the blow hole and added the mesh

Image

And painted the rivets too.

Image

I added the lone slot loading DVD drive

Image

Nearing the end

I drilled holes for the carry bars to mounted to the sides.

Image

I'll be using countersink nails

Image

Image

I've been meaning to touch up the angel topper. I bought some wood filler for the seams where the decorative trim pieces come together.

Image

Once it dried I reapplied an extra thick coat of paint to assist in the fill in

Image

I cut out another piece to stealth the DVD drive and I'll add it in a bit

Wow, Very nice!!

Am I correct in guessing that the New carry bars are going to be attached to the square bars on the bottom, or are you replacing them completely?

I particualry like the from bezel work - its slick!
