  • Dodge Durango Screen Fabrication, Nexations Creations *Work Log*

    Hey Guys,


    This fabrication is for HiJackZX1 and his Dodge Durango. Unfortunately things did not go well with the first attempt so he sent it on over to me. Things were in good enough shape that I could rip everything down and start from new.

    I started by prying up the putty, which wasn't that hard since it doesn't adhere to plastic that well. Once that was done, I was able to grind and sand it down. From here I was ready to do it Nexations Creations style.

    The job consists of making a outline/casing of the Lilliput Monitor to host the Lilliput screen. The screen fits snug into the frame and is secured by 2 screws which were previously made by the owner. Also a small vent will be molded in which is located under the speedometer visor. Once everything is spot textured, the whole dash will get a nice coat of black vinyl/plastic paint to match the new modifications and assist to blend them in.

    The following pictures show the progress thus far. Keep in mind that the dash will be all painted one color to match. Where the Screen Mold is, there is a different texture which I was able to pull off because it is in a sectioned off area.



    Enjoy & Stay Tuned!!

          I agree, I am so horribly impressed. I'm kinda ****ed that i added all that [email protected] to it, and none of it worked out. I am glad the mounting system i did worked out.I am so curious on the vent though and how well it will turn out. What color are you going to paint the Lilliput Bezel, please make it gloss black, if you need a picture of the A/C controls i will post a picture. The back of the screen can stay the same, you cant see that, lol.

            Don't worry about the putty. it was in the best inerest for the project for it to come off because underneath it, it was not adhering properly. It is all good though!

            As for the vent. I plan on making a small square bezel and molding in each side into the already cut out square. From there I will have the fins sit behind the square bezel. It will work out great.

            For the Bezel, I will paint it glossy black for you.

                  Nexson i had a quick question.... When you repaint everything, all the A/C vents and stuff come off right? I also wanted to point out that the 2 little bins that are below the A/C vents next to the screen, those come off. They are held in place by screws. I dont think you have to repaint the back, but if you do there is foam that creates a seal for the A/C ducts and I have screws in the A/C control holes and light switch area so I wouldnt loose them.

                    UPDATE

                    Pretty much finished up the dash. I still need to load up the paint gun and shoot the Lilliput bezel gloss black.

                    As for the vent, I blocked off a square and just molded it in for a seamless finish. I blended the new texture with the original. After that spot was completed, I prepped the dash and painted it all Satin black to match all modifications

                    Enjoy!

                    Almost done!

                        That looks nice. Why the vent on the monitor and dash?

                          The Lilliput is one of the older ones that use a CCFL bulb, so the screens get hotter then I like. My Lilliput in the dash is a complete screen that simply fastens to it using a mounting system. The little vent is actually for another screen that sits on the top.... here is a picture of that.




                          I have to say, It looks amazing.... I dont think anyone else would have come close. I cant wait till you start on the next project I have for you!

                              Nexson, if you do work on the other projects, is it possible you can just add that work to this work log? I am hoping I get a huge amount back on my income tax so you can work on the top of the dash. I also have a small project, that I am really pi$$ed about. I have a 15" flipdown screen that has VGA but no touchscreen. i decided to upgrade to a touchscreen but the panel was large and I had to gut the front half of the case, which contained the IR LEDS and buttons to control the screen. Those now have to be relocated to a different part of the screen, I was thinking of adding them to the base that holds the screen.

                              Do you do small little projects like that?

                              Here are some pictures of the buttons before the TS add on with ideas posted on them.
