    Phase 3 of my Carputer install

    Well, finally got brave enough to try integrating my Lilliput into the dash. This is only the 1st sanding before adding body filler:



    Bezel test fit in the car:



    Relocated my Alpine where a 6 disc cd-changer would go. The bezel for it is in the beginning stage:



    Here is the beast it's all riding in:



    As usual, let me know your opinions suggestions.

    Beautiful car. I'm doing the same thing in my Neon. I've pretty much got the bezel done and the screen is test fitted. I didn't quite go the route you did because I wanted to be able to pop the screen out when needed...here are some pics. I have to touch it up still. I believe our consoles are exactly the same too (SRT4 and Neon)...I'm putting my computer in the center console where the arm rest is.

    A fellow Neonite! Yes the center dash and console is identical. I take it your neon is red and you're not using a head unit. I thought about putting my pc in the console too, but will probably have to put my turbo toys switches there now. Will post more pics later.

    Actually I am using a head unit. I'm in the process of building a console for it and my DVD rom. It's going just below where the radio bezel is and right in front of ths shifter. I have the basic form done and I'm going to try to finish the console tomorrow. I'll be posting my pics soon too.

    That would be the bondo filler with fiberglass hair premixed in it. It has a green/white color after sanding.

    Ahh, that would be equivelent of what we can get as "P40" here in the UK

    You can use either that, or go direct to body filler (P38) as I have

    Wow...I can only hope mine looks that good (it doesn't.lol). I had the same idea for relocating my HU but instead I built another console that's going to cover the two cup holders and house my HU, DVD rom, and carputer.

    nice fabricating, nice guages, nice car, and nice garage (if I had a garage, my setup would be so much nicer)

    That's one of my next projects. I need a place to mount my Mopar Stage 3 Turbo Toys.

    I didn't use the original color. I had a body shop handle the painting, so they could match it to the guage cluster and my boost/oil pressure/Air Fuel Ratio guages.
