    i'd say continue with the extruded faces (like the panel that the guages are mounted in) also continue the rounded edges in those 'extrudes' and you'll have yourself something that looks like it was meant to be there.

    cool car btw

    Kind of looks like the LCD will be too low out of sight.

    i think it's shaping up, i think it is to bulky now. the stock interior doesnt have that much free space around the guages and glove box lid. how about sliming it down (scaling in 'x') and tightening up the area around the screen? also i'm not sure i like the lip that is formed by the sides against the front panel. i feel; from looking at the stock interior, that that piece should be rounded off a bit. can you try it with a nice curve to it, make it look not so 'stamped' rather molded?

    are you sure you have your dimensions right?
