    if its epoxy you wont be able to. You will have to sand it off as there is pretty mucn no chemical agent to remove it that won't wreck your dash.

    I have no idea what that is made from but to be honest it sounds pretty permanant. Try using a knife (carefully) and then maybe some emery to get the texture back in. if it still looks odd then you will have to paint it.

    wtf?

    lol

    did you not cover up the rest of your dash before using it?

    there isn't much at all that will get that off without needed to refinish that part of your dash....

    and just to be clear on how you have the screen installed....did you just make a 'plate' to mount the screen mount to then just screw the screen to that mount?

    what's the fabric? just to prevent it from rubbing?

    well, i guess i shud have, but was too excited to get this done. thus paid the price

    nope, the 'hole' in the dash is little smaller than the lilliput dimensions. now, the 'lilliput stand' is fixed behind the lilliput. i did not remove the paper(glue) under the stand. then using a bungee cord from ace hardware, i just made a knot and fixed it to the two sides of the dash. this will prevent it from falling forward. and if i want to remove the screen for any reason, just in case, i just pull the screen and move the bungee cord aside. not sure, if i was able to explain it clearly, but i will send you a picture if you wish.

    what's the fabric? just to prevent it from rubbing?
    its foam from an uphostry shop. used to fill the gap between the screen sides and the dash.

    ouch.. that doesnt look pretty

    you can try one of two things, take of the screwed up bezel:
    1. start sanding that stuff away and then repaint it
    2. sand a little bit and re-dip the part in resin
