      Nice to see Another Opel/Vauxhall Installer

      I'm hoping to install mine in the dash of my Frontera (When I get it). And it would be nice to know how complicated it is to use bondo/fiberglass to get the job done nicely.

      Did you just fill out where the old console used to be?

      Cheers

        well actually it is not too complicated, I never did this before, even haven seend the fiberglass before besides it I have used bolts to fix the monitor frame. If you have looked at the pictures, there is complete sequence of fiberglass/bondo/glue-ing the dash, I have used original dash, yes, where HU was. I did myself fiberglass, sanding and bondoing, that is on pictures, but final bondo and painting was done by proffessional car painting master in car repair service, it costed about 7$ to me, so I decided to give it to the master rather doing/spoiling it myself.

              Now, I am waiting for VoomPC case and M1-ATX, will redesign the electronics slightly. Also want to put Linux, which will boot from CF, but could not get normal frontend so far... thinking about putting PyCar..

                  what you mean, of the car?

                  It was just a regular car radio in the dash. unfortunately I did not shot the stock dash, was so unpatient to hack it but you can see removed stock dash on the pictures under the link I put in first post and on my signature

                    Yeah, well the pics take a bit of time to download unfortunatlly...
                    Why no CD? A slot load would've looked sweet under the screen.

                      yeah, I thought also about CD, but I did not have a chance to get it, when I did the bondoing, in the future, whe I have other car with indash motorized housing (no more bondoing and painting, takes lot of time, which I have not) will add CD too.
                      it take some time, because these pics are on god damn other hemisphere
