    drilled the holes for the bolts.

    [​IMG]
    test fiteed, perfect fit. the coulour of the bolt is temporary untill i can source beter ones. these ones someof them have fitting problems.

    [​IMG]
    drilled the holes on the panel. its very very hard to get the holes perfectly right. dam drill bit was jumping a lot due to the bent panel.

    some shots of it fitted and how it should look.

    I've been keeping my eyes open for these for awhile but just can't seem to find a place that sells them (at least in well documented form). You mentioned that you were going to look for a different source of these finishing washers. If you happen to find them online anywhere, please let me (and the rest of the community) know where. For the time being would you mind giving us the dimensions of yours such as their height, outside diameter, and what size bolts they fit? Thanks.

    Thank you so much for starting to take the pics with a decent camera! Now I can actually see something and not just read throught the expalanations and try to figure out what you've done! :) I'm a noobie when it comes to painting, but it's good to see you pulled that off nicely.

    that thing that you found in your store room is called a table vice, helpful indeed for the modding process. those are some clean cuts for your first time, keep it up. :D
