    Looks promising, are you planning on any kind of cooling for the pc later on. And in the diagram drawn up, are the top circles gauges or something else? Just curious about what all is going in there.

    They are gauges, haven't made final decisions on which gauges I want yet. For the pc, I'm planning on building it to fit into the area for the stock head unit. I'll have to get a little creative for cooling it, but I'll come up with something.

    4-25-10 Update

    I did a slight redesign on the original and rebuilt it and was able to get a couple layers of fiberglass on this weekend. I'll do a good sanding on it sometime this week and see where I stand. If everything looks good, I'll start on the filler to get it looking good.

In most spots the thickness of the project wont really matter, but where it ties into the dash the thickness needs to be pretty close.

    My question is, how much thickness will 2-3 layers of fiberglass add to my overall project, I need to subtract this from the width of my console so the whole thing will tuck nicely into the dash opening.

    Thanks


    Thanks you for the post.
