    still working on mine here and there. Trying to decide if I want to put some angled up speakers in the speaker holes or just fill them in. Be a good spot for tweeters if anything.

    Got plenty of time, I'll research good speaker dimensions/specs to see if anything good can be made to fit. I did think about putting a small display in the center speaker hole for a back up camera. Be nice if it was flip up.....a permanent display might invite theft.

    I like what's going on here.
    Im looking to redo my dash pad in my suburban.

    I just need to find a way to match the color in my suburban.

    So I blocked off a few edge cracks as well as the transition from the cluster. Few more minor spots (not including the transition lol) and those will be taken care of. The transition will probably take more elbow grease. Because it's got a corner I'll have to eventually start hand sanding.

    Transition:

    Just to give you guys an idea how long this takes:

    10 minutes - Clean area with acetone, mix epoxy, and spread/pour
    10 minutes - if you have to dam up with putty/play-doh
    20 Minutes - sand (orbital sander) all the spots in the previous post pictures

    I do give it 24 hours to dry, so it's best to do as much as you can in one cycle.

    Ran across this guy, does a awesome job. Probably a little heavy after, but who cares it sits in one spot.
