    No idea how much Car audio places charge in the US, but over here in the UK 35+17.5% VAT per hour for labour alone is fairly standard.

    If you've got the time its always the best option. Put it this way you can have several attempts if required at getting it right and still come in loads cheaper

    (the screen you are using and it dimentions, what tuff do you need to make this modification and things like that) - Please?

    well, i've got a xenarc 700tsv
    I put doublestick on the sides of the screen, and it fits perfectly right here w/barely any modification to the inside of the dash.. there's a couple little places you have to trim, but that's it

    I took some wire screen door material, and shaped it to the desired size and shape, then put some fiberglass on it

    next, i fiberglassed it to the center console and trimmed the excess

    bondo, resin, sand, etc

    cut area for screen

    sand and bondo more

    and it ended up like this





    the center console just sits in front of the screen

    in the sunglass holder, i have an apex-i S-AFC, it's a fuel controller... it's fairly worthless on this car because the ecu will adapt to the settings, and compensate for them I plan on getting an apex-i powerFC standalone ecu fairly soon and yanking out the AFC

    I have my computer in the glovebox.

    I used to have a cappuccino type pc in there,

    but have replaced it w/an epia-m setup


    (old picture) (doesn't look all that great right now

    Yeah, but my primary concern is that I only have one center console, so if I mess that up I have to buy another...and so on

    I guess I could practice a lot and then eventually get it right - or I could just pay someone to do it right the first time It's like computers. I do all that work myself because I know it, but others would be willing to pay me a lot to do it for them because it's like magic to them. Fiberglass is my magic - I don't know the first thing about it But then again, looking at the pics above makes it look pretty doable - that turned out really nice.

    A few of our Club members have added an LCD to their Celicas.

    Here's mine. Will take more pictures during the day.

    taytay... you can always try making something else out of fiberglass... just to play around with and get some practice.
