Ok, back to my basic problem. What am I going to make the base out of to secure the monitor bezel and the Jeep
cup holder? After digging around upstairs, I came across a couple of boxes of abs regrind plastic I had.
I then made a sludge out of the regrind and acetone. I put the fiberglass mold back into the console and then
packed it with the abs regrind sludge:
You could feel the plastic slowly hardening and getting very hot. Because the sludge was so thick, it took a good
4 1/2 days before it hardened as solid as a rock. Next, I popped out the abs plastic mold. You can see how it
ate away at the fiberglass mold:
Next, I cut holes in the plastic mold using a dremmel where the bezel and cup holder will be and then used the
Dynatron to epoxy it into place. This plastic to plastic was a very strong bond:
Finally, the last layer of Dynatron.
And painted with bed liner spray.
Now it was time to install the monitor into the bezel. Using another old console I had, I cut off the plastic posts
with the screws and made some 'wings' so it could be taken apart in the future if need be.
And now installing the touchscreen and secure it with industrial strength Velcro.
