    If you're the only person who drives the car, could you just make a permanent mount in the position you need it in? The other solution, as you said, would be to make everything external. This may...

    Just a quick update: I haven't started fabbing anything yet, but I did manage to (finally) get my iPad to tether to my Droid Eris. I learned that there is no way to tether an iPad to an Android...

    Come to think of it, my friend's school has a 3D printer. I'm now curious to see if I can use that with my project.

    No, the upper piece that goes in front of the iPad looks fine. I'm mostly inquiring about the left, right, and bottom bits of the bezel, like where the home button cutout in the plastic meets the...

    Thanks-- I think I'll try that. Thing is I don't have much room to remove any more material. I'll see what I can do though.

    Toyota Corolla iPad Install

    Use ABS Sheets Instead of Fabbing?

    I have no fabrication skills, and unfortunately I have a large piece that needs fabbing. I have no CAD skills either, so I've drawn up what I need to do (the yellow parts will need to be fabricated)....
