remove everything but the plastics, and just use a bit of epoxy to build it up some. then reinstall the hardware onto the plastics after you bondo and paint. take some picutres so we know what part of the device you're molding. IF you're using just the buttons, take the shell, cut out the area around the buttons, then mold that into the dash, then reinstall the hardware to that. same for the controller ports.

I'd draw you a picture and send you a 3-D e-mail of it in solidworks but my time vs your ability to glean an understanding of what I am trying to convey is disproportionate, so no.
