Well, my modified dome is ready for primer. These pictures aren't the best but this is the extended dome 'skirt'. I've added about 3/4" all around which now makes the whole thing look massively better.

At the front I've lowered and smoothed out the strangley arched 'eyebrows' and added a widow's peak. The edge of the dome has now been thickened to around 1/4".

This is a rough shot of the side view. Very happy with how it now looks. Next job, primer and paint.

Thanks fellas! I managed to spray some primer on the modified bits today to check if I need to do any more filling/sanding. Thankfully there's only a couple of very minor blemishes so I should get that sorted in no time, then on to paint.
