I'm gonna try to go the lexan route(plexiglass) and epoxy it in there. If that doesn't work, it's a good time to learn how to use fiberglass =]

While your doing all this work you should be molding in the adaptor plate for your radio too. Make it look real clean.

I don't think that is very likely. An aftermarket is always gonna be better and slicker

Yeah...you may be doing all of this work, but my frame is brand spanking new, along with my engine compartment, which will soon house a big burly beast.

Wanna come help?

True...but my only advantage was a wire brush on the air die grinder. I did all of my frame work and re-coating in the driveway!
