    Virgina Beach was sweet. Not as nice as it is in the summer but a hell of a lot better than being home for the week.

    Anyway I have pics of the priming and sanding. I added bondo tons of times since the last pictures to make the curves blend together and make everything smooth.

    Here is the dash ready to be primed.



    Yeay! its starting to look like one piece!



    I sanded and primed maybe 5-6 coats before I switched over to flat black.
    This picture is after 6 coats of black done in 3-4 very light layers 5-10 minutes apart.


    This is after sanding with 2000 grit paper.



    Scratch remover was used to buff out the tiny scratches left by the sand paper making a super smooth finish.



    I wanted a flat black look but after the scratch remover it just looked smooth and dull so I had no choice but to put some NuFinish car polish on it to bring out the black color and take away the haze.



    So there you have it... I will put more pics up later of the finished dash with the screen installed and it all installed in the car though it wont work yet because the computer isnt installed yet.

    They would not fit with the screen in there well and I didnt like the off center look they had anyway so I got rid of them and they are going somewhere under the dash along with the dvd drive

    Here are the pics of it being re assembeled and put back in my car

    Here is the two halfs ready to go back together.



    Here I re attached the LCD



    Theres the front with the LCD in place



    Here it is hooked up to the pc and with the front end running



    This is what it looks like installed back in my car


    So that about wraps things up for that part of the dash. I do think I am going to extend the IR sensor and put it in a vent or something so I can control the LCD via the IR in my phone if I need to ever. I still have to fabricate the bottom section for the other buttons and the DVD drive etc so I will get working on those as soon as I can get a slim usb DVD drive box to play with. I am going to build it all into the area behind the cup holders along with an extra usb port and buttons etc.
