    that's not a tablet... it's just a screen... more info on this screen for anyone interested, can be found here

    these screens are totally insane & blow away most everything else you'll find... I am btw sold out on these screens at the moment, but am working on sourcing them elseware...

    this same screen is used in motion tablets with outdoor viewable screens, as well as some fujitsu's with the outdoor sunlight viewable screens as well...

    Very nice work! I have the same car with the same color interior. I'm thinking a doing an install with a 7 or 8" screen in the bottom part of the dash leaving the top compartment. Do you think this method would work well for me?

    12" MTX 9500 in a SS* or a 12" Brahma in a SS*
    ZAPCO COMPONENTS in front and RFs in rear
    2 YellowTops and a 200amp Iraggi Alternator

    I think so, I really showed 2 main things here, 1 is the method & technique of making this as an insert, & the other is the use of materials that are compatable with most modern dashboards.. bondo & fiberglass are not the right materials for this type of work, bondo is great for ridgid work & is designed for use on metal.... some guys use it with sucess on wood too, but it's not good for a plastic dash bezel... fiberglass is equaly incompatable really..

    even if my insert method doesn't suit your aplication well, the materials & finishing techniques still apply really.....
