As I'm prepping my panels for the second round of armor (CF and ceramics went excellently) I'm continually being bothered by something.
How to close the plastic in so that it's one smooth panel? The ridge on the exterior visible in the last pic is especially bothering me. I want these panels perfect before I shoot any paint, and right now they're really bugging me.
I've looked at something as simple as bondoing them, but that would get to be an issue because it would most likely fall out. I thought about putting styrofoam in and then bondoing, or insulation foam (the carveable stuff) but that still leaves the crack around the rim.
Any suggestions? Weight doesn't seem to be a problem, and the panel simply will not flex with a double layer of CF run inside the panel. It's an aesthetic issue, but one that's very high on my list.
