Ooooh! Shiny! Almost there… I assume the layer of VV will also bring a degree of stability to the BSCG work by effectively laminating it. Can't wait to see it with the light fitted. Great work so far bro…

95% COMPLETE! Still have minor cleaning up to do, and install damping foam around tail light edge, install grills, final rubberization on the inside then add 3 to 5 retention screws and one final heat gun all over...

Looking better and better. Real pro looking job!
Thanks mate! So all in all it was a three wk project... I was hoping to “Get r done” within one wk! But seeing this was a first attempt, I should cut myself some slack... However, summer is around the corner!

Yes! To a certain degree... remember the BSCGlue was used just to fill in the gap between tail section & tail light and create a somewhat uniform curve providing a seem less transition from plastic to tail light. The BSCGlue has support from above and below. Filler putty on top and steel reinforced putty below. I’d have to “crash” backwards to ac,tually break it!! Again that you for the compliment!

It looks like a shark profile. Maybe a line of sharks teeth would do the trick! Seriously though nice fabrication work.

Unfortunately holes couldn’t be completely concealed, however, you won’t be able to see it!

Great job bro… blanking off your beetle bag indicator recesses is next I guess?

What's the advantage of your rubberisation step and what do you use (forgive me if it's stated earlier in your posts)?

Thanks mate!! Learned a thing or two during that process... Blanking was done in first build here are some old pictures... Will add new ones once I clean up around turn signals.

GETTING READY TO INSTALL LEFT LED STRIP.


CAN'T REALLY TELL FROM THE PHOTO BUT HORRIBLE HORRIBLE PAINT JOB! WASN'T CHARGED FOR THIS DEBACLE!!!





Fast forward to present and bags have a new pristine black gloss paint finish. Told painter to leave edge so I could wrap it! Pics to come.

As far as "rubberization" goes it gives a nice durable finish that washes easily and help to some minuscule degree with vibration. Every bit helps! Rubber in a can! Usually used for under cars or mud guard protection. So many grades available! Some are grainy while others have a paint like smooth finish. Black, white even clear. The one I used is a home grown product from Canadian Tire, a hardware store, $16 a can. You have other such as "Flex Seal", "Leak Seal" or "Gorilla Glue Waterproof Patch and Seal" or any other comparable rubber in a can.
