finally got some resin on
getting the piece ready:
letting everything set up and dry tonight. Will head back over tomorrow to see how it all finished up and to test fit to make sure nothing twisted.
Looking good. Looks like felt works great! Seems to have drank the resin right in.
I finally got my screen and did a semi-install yesterday. it's all up and running temporarily. I have another copy of Windows XP on the way, since I just used my laptop's disk and license to install it for now, so I'll be redoing it soon enough. But it works for now. WOOT! The screen is just mounted on the stand to the top of the console.
Good going, I like this setup ;)
I am also using balsa wood for my setup, just to a lesser extent.....some good ideas here, thanx!
Uraijit - be sure to post up some pics of you install
I've got a question - anyone know what SEM color matches the dark tan piece I'm replacing? I've looked online but it's too hard to tell - also, doesn't appear that anyone in my area sells SEM products.
more progress!!! This morning Dad put a second coat of resin down. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out :
I was able to do some test fiting - screen dropped right in - nothing twisted or warped!!! Need to dress the edges and do some trimming before I can test it in the truck, but if the screen fit like before, I'm confident it will fit the console just like before.
Went ahead and applied some resin to the back side
Not sure if we'll be working tomorrow since it's my birthday and I plan on going out :happy: If we do work, it will be the trimming and dressing the edges and might also get some sanding in so next week we'll be able to shoot some primer.
Started my own worklog, so I can stop cluttering yours up. There are a few pics if you want to check them out.
Wow, and I thought your dad had skills just building the bezel. That plane is awesome!
Your project is looking pretty sweet too! How are you doing your sound?
Where is the case going to be mounted?
