This is just what i've been looking for. Perfect !!
Put me down for one please.
you've got PM
As I've sat here patiently waiting for 3 more people to sign up I've begun investigating alternative methods to get this bezel...
I discovered that mp3car member Gordon (VeritasForge) makes and sells custom pc cases so I asked him if he could make this for me and he said it'd probably be about $75. Encouraged by that I had my brother bust out the solidworks. (attached)
I decided to remove the piece directly above the HU and use the entire space between the climate controls and the dashboard... a total of about 140mm. The LCD goes on the top part, closest to my eyeballs, and a slot-load slim DVD goes below the Xenarc. The bezel is 6mm aluminum and the cage is 2mm. The DVD sits on the bottom of the cage (maybe with some double-sided tape or velcro?) and the LCD mounts directly to the bezel. I haven't worked out the nitty-gritty yet but the basics are there.
Examples of Gordon's (VeritasForge) work:
Xbox case-stainless steel
Custom Stainless Case- With Opus 120
Also... I know Jon has worked a lot on this project and I don't want to discount that in any way... I know it's been a lot of work thus far. I just wanted to check out the options.
I think i might have to get 2 of these.. I will know by this weekend..
