    Does this Custom Dash Pass the the MP3Car test?

    I just finished the second dash peice that i have done (first one died while trying to strip the paint..haha) and just wanted to show you guys and see what you think.

    For this one i think i am going to leave it black. The last one I did I custom matched the paint and i put a few to many coats on trying to get the right color and it looked crappy. I like the black and it matches other peices in the car.

    The thing below the lilliput is the controll unit to my surround sound processor.

    Attached is the before and after. I molded the front belez of the lilliput into the the dash peice by dremeling out space for the lilliput bezel, epoxying the lilliput bezel inplace, bondo, sand, sand, sand, paint, bondo, sand, sand, bondo, bondo, sand, paint, bondo, paint, bondo, paint. I started on thursday and finished it this afternoon. I spent about 12-14 hours over 3 days.

    I am really pleased on how this one came out. It is not 100% perfect but looks professional enough for me.

    Let me know what you think

    It looks horrible... work on it some more... it is not up to the "elite mp3 gods" standards!



    Great job, i like how you utilized the pocket space as a place for your HU.

    without pictures from a few more angles, can't give you a full appraisal.

    On first inspection it does look good, although I'm not sure how smooth you've got it.
