    Started work on my indash LCD

    I have my stereo surround piece all cut up and ready for epoxy. I had to keep some of the button blanks, so I moved the left ones up, that's what the hole ion the upper left is for. I have plans to hopefully mount a slot load dvd rom above and to the right of the lcd. All of that area is going to be filled. I'm just gonna cut small pieces of wood or plexiglass, which ever you guys recommend and fill the 3 swares to the right. Tell me what you think. I'd love any advice any seasoned veterans might have. I have the lcd and bezel sanded and prepped for the epoxy, that's why there's white stuff on the lcd, it's white plastic below. The LCD fits so well that it stays in place perfectly now without epoxy. I can't wait to get it all glued together.

    Here's a photochop of what I hope to have as a finished product. I want to get a slot load dvd and just have a slit in the dash piece.

    My car is a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT. I've been wanting to do this since I bought the car almost a year ago, but I had to plan it all out, then I had to stop spending my money on performance mods for the car and save for the car pc, lol. I got the lcd and the button holes epoxied in. I then cut plastic pieces to fill the holes and have those epoxied. I sanded before epoxying the holes, and sanded a bit of epoxy. Well, a bit of advice, wear gloves, my hands got red and itchy for about 15 minutes afterwards, hehe. Here's a couple more pics of progress. I plan on filling with fiberglass reinforced bondo material tomorrow hopefully.





    And if you're curious what the car looks like, here's some pics.

    I was just looking at the piece, and I realized that the deepest place I need to fill will be the right and left side of the lcd, which is about 1/8". Should I just use regular bondo, or stick with the fiberglass reinforced bondo? Thanks guys,

    that looks great so far...I find that using the Bondo hair is harder to sand but the strength is much greater than that of regular bondo.

    keep up with the updates!

    Well, I decided to sand it down tonight and prep it for filling tomorrow. As you can see in the second part, one of the plastic patch pieces I put in got thinned out too much to match the curve, and tehre's a small hole. I want to know, do you guys think I should use more plastic epoxy to fil the hole, or should I use some fiberglass reinforced bondo? I'd like some responses by tomorrow afternoon, cause that's when I'll be working on it next. Thanks again guys,

    Tommy
