    if its epoxy you wont be able to. You will have to sand it off as there is pretty mucn no chemical agent to remove it that won't wreck your dash.

        I have no idea what that is made from but to be honest it sounds pretty permanant. Try using a knife (carefully) and then maybe some emery to get the texture back in. if it still looks odd then you will have to paint it.

          wtf?

          lol

          did you not cover up the rest of your dash before using it?

          there isn't much at all that will get that off without needed to refinish that part of your dash....

          and just to be clear on how you have the screen installed....did you just make a 'plate' to mount the screen mount to then just screw the screen to that mount?

          what's the fabric? just to prevent it from rubbing?

            well, i guess i shud have, but was too excited to get this done. thus paid the price

            nope, the 'hole' in the dash is little smaller than the lilliput dimensions. now, the 'lilliput stand' is fixed behind the lilliput. i did not remove the paper(glue) under the stand. then using a bungee cord from ace hardware, i just made a knot and fixed it to the two sides of the dash. this will prevent it from falling forward. and if i want to remove the screen for any reason, just in case, i just pull the screen and move the bungee cord aside. not sure, if i was able to explain it clearly, but i will send you a picture if you wish.

            what's the fabric? just to prevent it from rubbing?
            its foam from an uphostry shop. used to fill the gap between the screen sides and the dash.

                ouch.. that doesnt look pretty

                you can try one of two things, take of the screwed up bezel:
                1. start sanding that stuff away and then repaint it
                2. sand a little bit and re-dip the part in resin

                  re-dip? why? to give it a more even look?

                    do you have any particular brand name in mind for the paint and resin.

                      well if your going to go the resin route i would suggest using the same resin you used before. i guess epoxy in your case. Ive messed around with the homedepot resin which works well too.

                      if your going to paint it ,any spray paint should work as long as you rough up the material and use a primer according to the directions. A semi gloss in the end might help pretty it up a bit more.


                      RedGtiVr6...yes rediping would help even out those cracks, its basically the cheap and easy way out.


                      you might also be able to get away with sanding it down and then spray some clear coats over the bezel. Remember to clean off the part before spraying it!
