So are you going to call the book "How to build a car out of a quarter panel and a light bulb"? Geez I thought Martha Stweart could whip something out of nothing!

Yes mate, that and a glazing filler called " Dolphin glaze " just to make sure that is was smooth, its a pain in the backside as the 4th gen dash is really flexible.
