Default Modded Bezel

Got my bezel finally modded. Was an exploder with 2 fog holes and R-wipe. Filled all the holes with epoxy, ground down and finished with some spot putty. Wanted to take more pics, oh well, next time. I will be installing 3 round switches that I modded with a blue led. should look pretty good when finished.

looks good, you can barely tell the holes were there. wouldn't it have been easier to buy a switch with a blue led?

I used my dremel with the sanding disc to get it close, then I used 400 grit followed by 1000 grit on the spot putty

Good work. To modify trim piece features I was STUCK on the idea of using fberglass resin and matting. Now You've basically introduced an easier method.
Also nice surgery on the lighted switch.
PICS when installed.

Wait till the paint cures to sand it. You're gonna need to go deep. Satin sheen should work, you don't wanna go too flat.

Yikes!
Looks like it bubbled up on you.
I've had trouble with the gloss too, now I use satin. It works SOOOO much better and still has a little bit of shine to it.
