I have a nice little project going on. Im somewhat of a tech nerd and want to incorporate some LED lights into my fairings. I want them to shine through basically in a nice, smooth, even light, In strips. Ive decided I want to use Lexan Polycarbonate that needs to be completely flush with the outside surface of the fairing.
My ONLY problem right now is seamlessly incorporating the poly with the surface of the fairing.
I'd like to know if anyone has any thoughts and/or ideas on this?
The only thing i can think of so far is once the strip is cut out of th fairing, ill place tape on the outside surface of the fairing covering the hole, and put the poly in, then bondo the backside over the whole strip. Then when it dries, tape up the front side and "putty in" the small seem.
Main problem with this is method that the tape might allow movement of the poly and it might not me smooth/flush when the bondo dries. If you know poly you cant mess with the surface at all or it gets that white super textured look.
Any advice or idea would be appreciated. Thanks! :)
Heres the general idea:
