    Llamas98taco liked my Satoshi on my second gen and asked if it's possible to do on his i've haven't done a first gen but I'm pretty good with fiber glass and bondo. Here are some pictures of today's progress... We're letting the bondo dry over night and finishing up with paint tomorrow.

    I extended the bottom lip were its flush to the top lip...

    Finish product tomorrow..
