  • Custom Fabrication Work?

    Hi all, I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a place that does custom fabrication work? Everyday more and more I think of doing my system indash, but I really lack the ability to do this stuff. Is there any place that I could say send in dash board (I'de just buy a replacement one) and my lcd screen and somespecs and theyde do it? Or better yet someplace I could go speak with someone? Thanks in advance, I know its crazy, but I'm really no good at fabrication. heh.

    ps- I'm running a 1989 Ford Bronco II.

    I thought I would be terrible with fabrication but it came out great. Buy an extra dash piece if you are afraid to work with the original. It is a lot easier than it looks.

          it's honnestly not that hard!

          try it on something other than your car first and you will be amazed at how simple it is.

          otherwise, if you REALLY want to pay someone, let me know what you want done

          =]

          otherwise, go to a local stereo shop. you will be charged out the *** for it, but it will be done by someone who should have some experience.....and it's that experience that you are paying for.....that and the time, because fabrication isn't exactly a quick thing...lol

                      Simple! Well not really, it can be done with a little work. Remove the headunit. Move the heating controls down, you may have to trim some of the extra plastic on the right. Then you should have enough room for the lilli.

                          what he said...it's really not too bad, you would just have to add your own "plastic" (bondo) in areas that needed it and trim that AC unit if you could. it would just be a lot of work is all. I'm not a fan of flip out screens, but I think in this case, it would be much easier to just get a flip out screen from digitalww.com and put it where the stock headunit is.

                            she's from texas, it's too cold to do that kind of stuff
                            i kid, i kid. it's pretty cold here in arkansas too, currently 40-45 degrees, and I have to do all my bondo work in the garage where it's warm. but I can't paint in the garage, and it's been rainy lately =\
