Cabinet Repair

Some duffus decided to install a stereo in this cabinet and forgot to think before he started. So, I'm going to modify it and make it better. First I'm going to cut out the hole I want in the cabinet. It has to be below the gas light, inside the frame on the bottom and the sides. A measuring tape, ruler and a pencil is used.
Next I take my jig saw and cut out the hole.
I now need to fill the holes where the speakers were. I draw a square around it and cut out the square.
Now with a square hole, I can cut a piece of paneling to fit the hole. I attach a 1x2 behind with 1" grabbers and attach my filler panel to the 1x2.
Next I fill the cracks with bondo. Many people will try to save time and money by using sheet rock mud but it will only crack.
While that's drying, I route the edges for a super clean cut around the existing frame.
After the bondo was dried and sanded with 180 grit, I put a primer on it. You can skip the primer, but it will allow the top coat to cover easier.
After it's painted, it looks like it was made that way.
I put a 1/2" screen molding, painted white around the edges and the trailer now has an extra shelf and storage. They should've made it this way.
