Easter brought a break this afternoon so I could get back to this project. I'm using a rotary tool with grinder attachment for excavating filler from the crevices of the bezel frame.

After more grinding today, I applied the 2nd layer of filler to areas of the bezel.

Yes, it is long, but we're about there. Heres after sanding the 2nd application of Evercoat brand "Everglass: (short strand) fiberglass filler. I thought this would be the final coat, but I'm not satisified with the results yet. btw: I'm recording stages of the bezel for YouTube after getting several requests offlist. I'll remember to edit out all of the boring stuff..lol!

Test fit it tonight, touch up some details with spot filler, re-install the threaded rod and then I can apply the base coat to the bezel

I'm cutting a dead card to create the look of circuitry to the bezel's four protruding features. These will be painted flat black along with the bezel. I'll also be using model clay to add more details.

Shot of the workspace this morning, the cases are "Skully" for ongoing project series on [url="http://www.casemodblog.com"]casemodblog[/url], and black one is Matt's GOLIATH project in the corner which you'll see more of later. I'm fan of VWs too!

Applied Black Spot filler / sandable primer this afternoon. Nice change from Green. Gives you a better idea of how the final piece will look. It also helps reveal what areas of the filler I wanna keep touching up.

Looks really good cant wait to see the rest of what you do with it. With the green leds in the fans, are you planning on lighting up the eye sockets on the skull? Hope to see more on it soon!

Sorry for lack of updates, working on two other customized cases for clients. Need_for_Speed found this photo and sent it to me. It's the interior of a Turtle shell. It would be really cool to implement something like this somewhere into the build.
