The company sent me a double instead of triple! I cant see how youve done it James, cut the pods out individually and put a bead of glue on the paper thin edges?? Did you sand them down completely? If I sand too hard ill go through!

The advert should have got you a 3 pillar pod I would go back and tell them.

Mine stated like this



once got them position I glued them into place left over night in airing cupboard so glue can harden then I slapped on filler, fibreglass etc to smooth it all in.

Do you think id get away with just using filler? Never used FG before and i think filler would be enough.

Yeah don't see why not I only used fibreglass as I damaged it when fitting so used it to strengthen it all up :)

Don't forget to put some holes in the back for wires to run through :) I used a 42 mm holesaw drill attachment to do mine :) after I had the pod locations sorted
