  • ES300 Fog Retro

    I figured I would make a seperate thread on this as another example It's on my 03 Stratus R/T, so it's probably one of the few ever done as well. I started making the bezel for the finished one, to see how I like it. I used some aluminum flashing to making the bezel, and after many failed attempts I finally got a single piece to fit. I had a pile of aluminum shards all over before I realized I should make the template out of paper first . Once I got that fitting how I liked it I got a little body filler and put that around the edges and around the projector so it looked like a clean uniform fit. Any thoughts/suggestions?

    Test fitted after I trimmed out the back

    You can see how pitted the lenses are in this pic

    JB welded everything in

    Second Stage (1000 grit)

    Third Stage (1500 grit)

    Fourth Stage (3000 grit)

    Final Stage (PlastX)

    After making the bezel and using the body filler.
