      cos thats the way the double din is in the plate. you can use the side space for other stuff.

      Looks amazing Jerry. nice one.

              stupid me, I deleted all of the fab pictures for the new one, but that is the link to the first attempt, which I did pretty much the same way as this, just this time I used a bunch of thin coats of bondo instead of one thick coat. I also retained the lines of the lilliput face as the straight lines work good with the volvo dash

                  Thanks!

                  I was thinking about that, but I dont like the look of the fin, I think I am going to hide the gps antenna in the 3rd taillight

                  and I am not sure I am going to keep that antenna when I go to the dead reckoning system

                    good work on that dash peice. I am glad you didn't settle less. It looks so much better. I have been fighting with my dash peices lines and paint matching. It is going to take a friggen miracle to get the right color. I spent 50 bucks this last weekend on paint and supplies made to the specs of the MFG but it is too dark. I am going to have to get creative.... I have painted my dash bezel 10 times and fab or refabricated it 3 times.

                    I think if one thing is done right it should be the dash peice

                      Thanks!

                      yeah now after this one I know the feeling, I went through 2 double din adapters, 5 cans of paint 2 cans of primer and at least 20 packs of sandpaper

                      I still look at it and cant believe that I made it

                          Excellent work JCD, really good job. All that sanding does pay off.

                          btw: does you screen look pretty bright in those pics, and your using a night skin.
