    Really?
    Wow, you guys are getting ripped off.
    I've never done any f/g work at a shop, I always do it myself, but I asked and was quoted $125 for a simple 7" LCD dash mount.

    The shop is owned by a friend so maybe he was cutting me a deal.

    Who's getting ripped off? Where did you read I paid that much? I do all my own work. But yes you will get ripped off at an audio shop. It's what audio shops do. Most people don't have a clue or are too intimidated when it comes to custom fabrication so the markup is outrageous.

    That simple 7" dash mount you got a quote for was likely a bolt on arm from your dash or something similar. What ericdee wants is custom fiberglass enclosure. Not a "simple dash mount".

    reda4: how do you get the mold to fit so well against the curve of the dash? That last pic especially? Looks real good man.....you were part of my inspiration (from a post over @ audiworld) to put a carputer in the A4....and it been an addiction since...
