    That thread is under Fabrication. Here's the link: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/fabr...abricator.html

    Posting your comments there would help others . . .

    It's great that you found a fabricator so easily, and I suspect others will want to follow in your footsteps. Nice job on the brackets -- interesting approach.

    This stuff is really fun . . .

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    That looks great Alan, glad you found a fab to do it, looks some much different than mine and seems nice and easy with right angles as compared to mine.

    BTW were did you get the ARMR film? I'd be keen on buy one for mine - does it come in at the right size or do you need to cut it?

    Can't wait to see it all in the car.
    Thanks champ, still got a few more little cosmetic items I need doing and then on the bench for testing.

    You have to cut it. I ended up buying it from two different places-Once from fleabay, and once from Digikey.

    When you do apply the film, just a piece of advice: If your picky like me TAKE YOUR TIME! and make sure the screen is perfectly clean. You basically get one shot at it, and if a piece of dust gets trapped between the armr film and screen, you will never get it off the adhesive side of the film without smudging.

    What I ended up doing was measure the bezel opening, and then cutting out a piece of paper to make sure I had the measurements correct. I grabbed a flat glass cutting board from the kitchen, and then layed the paper and ARMR film on it, and using a metal straight edge and a razor cut it. Came out perfect. I rounded the corners with some fingernail clippers lol.

    I just ordered a screen protection from Photodon, was about 10 USD, hope it good. I had to send it to a friend in CALI and have them send it too me, should take about 1 week

    I found some others, really good LCD screen protection with improved antiglare, but they all have the same issue, no one ships outside the USA!!

    Just looks so much sexier when it's lazer cut I had to countersink some of the holes and add a few extra ones that were need to mount al of the other components.
