    when i get some money put together which shouldn't be too long i will be including a display with computer in boot, cables already ran to back for power etc.

    Heres a design below,

    It will be embedded in about 3 or 4 cm so it has a border, help to protect from sun. also ability to make a cover to go over for security.



    What ya think ?

    did you use a plastic primer before the top coat?

    it is funny how it is obvious that the same person who built your clock and HVAC controls built my Pug 306 ones. The general design, especially the mountings, and the materials are too identical.

    I know your clock and stuff are standard, i just meant that it was funny that different manufacturers use the same people to make them.

    So you didn't use any special plastic primer? Just normal car body paint?
