    New Project....Dash Bezel

    Well its Sunday at 10:30am and I need to get this bezel done for a customer so I figured I would go ahead and post it in real time as I go. Its a 2001 chevy s10 ZR2 dash. I need to fit a single din headunit and 8" lilliput touchscreen and a half din eq. The heating controls are being relocated after I finish this. I will be removing the two vents at the top for the headunit since its an s10 the vents on the side are more than enough for that truck. Anyway.......here I go.

    4:16pm and almost done. I'm getting bored really. Wanna go in and play XBOX LOL!!!!! After this dries I am going to mount the screen and eq as a test fit and thats it. Since today is Sunday I cant get my color match and texture. I know it still has a couple lines in it and a few hard lines I need to sand down but thats 10min of work and figure I will do it when I have my texture and paint. It doesnt matter anyway, customer isn't bringing his truck back till next weekend. Just figured I would show you guys what I did today.

    Haha, I hate getting to the point in a project near the end where ya just want to put it aside and go do something FUN. As always, you do very nice work. One of these days I need to figure out how to do that sort of thing.

    I would have eliminated the monitor buttons so there would not be that many buttons at the bottom - seams crowded.

    Ya'll professional make it look easy.

    All right its 4:42pm and I am done for the day. When I get the texture and paint I will wet sand everything down and smooth any hardlines but now its time to clean up and go play call of duty. Later

    And yes, I caught that Saturday mistake........It sucks though. Now I feel like I lost a day!

    WOW.....I just looked at the pics and I am messy!!!! thats pretty embarrasing Why is it so messy? Weird, oh well, I am going to blame all my mispellings and wrong days due to Sudafed. Not feeling well today but figured I would post this stuff up in case it helps anybody out.

    And to the comment about the buttons. I wanted to but its a flat ribbon cable going to the board and I have know idea where to buy an extension for that. If you know please tell me for future installs. I agree it would have looked nicer without and it would have been way easier.
