    even if my insert method doesn't suit your aplication well, the materials & finishing techniques still apply really.....
    Man if only you live in houston. How much do you usually charge for a custom bezel?

    all depends on time & materials.... this bezel would be over $400 labor plus materials...

    Thumbs up Nice

    I'm newbie here but i've been reading post for my own honda element project. I'm hooked on making my own carputer. I just wish i have some examples from other element owners.

    I love your stuff, work... everywhere i look i notice ur work and can't believe what you've done. Thanks so much for posting all the pic and the step by step work.

    Currently I'm starting to purchase my parts (trying to keep the project under 1k). In the mean time i'm researching on what i can do to my car's benzel.

    hey, thanks for the compliments guys

    dk, how'd yours come out?

    the abs sludge isn't really bad, but this is so much faster & much more foolproof...
