    How would you go about doing this?

    Hey, I have had my carpc setup for a while and have just been really lazy and havent gotten my screen looking oem yet. Well now I wanna get it lookin good, but after looking at how other people have fabricated their dashes I am in a bind. All the other people I have noticed putting in screens already have a housing for their screen. Well I have a DennisK setup and I just have a screen here is a pic

    Right now The screen is attached to the din in some places, I wanna change this and have the screen attach to the The dash. What I was thinking I could do was make a housing out of wood and then attach that housing to the dash and then bondo over the wood. The bondo will go just over the yellow so you can only see the screen ( duhh :P ) in order to do this I think I will have to shift the screen up. I just wanted to see if this was a good idea, and also if anyone else had any better ideas. I also feel that this wood would help give the bondo some more strength. Please post ideas/comments.

    Seems like a plan, although I'd recommend using plastic + duramix 4046 rather than wood and bondo. Duramix is really cool stuff, worth the price... Don't bother with buying the $50 gun though, just convert a caulk gun over using dowels or PVC pipe.

    Would making the housing for the LCD out of plexi-glass, then sanding it and then bondoing it work. I have plenty of plexy I could use.

    how does the duramix work? does require tons of sanding, like the bondo and FG? is it possible to work it with gloved hands or a spatula, instead of a caulk gun or the 50$ gun?
    don't let a day go by without finding some wonder in it...
