Maybe I'm looking at the pictures wrong but did you fill the holes on the front panel with a glue gun? Don't think thats the best idea if you're plannning on it lasting a while

that was the original idea, but it didnt sand down the way I imagined, so I used Gorilla glue
I didnt feel like buying fiberglass and i didnt have any epoxy at the time

Hot melt glue to cover a gap is quite a ghetto mod you're doing there. It is springy and soft to the touch which is not exactly the kind of surface that you want to have.

Epoxy would have been the best stuff to use to cover that gap. Better still is automotive grade Bondo which will harden fast and give a very smooth and hard surface to paint over.
