    The one thing I've found is that taking my time and paying attention to details is key. This build project has probably been going on now for close to 6 months!

    I hear yea man mine has been going on for the past 7 Years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Just becasue i can't leave it alone. Its kinda like a scab that you keep picking at all the time. It's looking good thou nice wood work mixed in with the fiberglass.

    got it all sanded down. Some more lessons learned with the milkshake: it needs to be thin and applied thin. Anyways, sanded down using 600grit, got pin holes filled and sanded and a couple of coats of primer.

    Tomorrow SEM texture will be going on and quite possibly some color - depends on how fast the SEM texture dries.

    on with the pics:

    first a little texture:



    maybe some more...



    that's looking pretty good, now for color!








    I'm still not 100% positive yet. I am going to wait a couple of days and go look again. Just not sure the color I used will match close enough. That and it turns out the paint I used is SEM vinyl and leather paint - not sure how well that's gonna set up.

    Also got the case iced, smoothed, sanded and painted:

    yeah I saw that - congrats on finally being able to play some tunes! I'm probably gonna hit you up on how I should hook all this up - the old head unit vs pc debate...

    Heres the bezel in the truck - might be hard to tell, but in the day light, the color is off - you can tell it doesn't belong. I'm gonna try and find a closer match and repaint.





    started finishing up the dvd drive:

    Anytime man just msg me or post something to me so i can get back to you. Either way will work. I would suggest for yea to come up with what you are looking for in what your system will do and how you want to run it. Then from that point see what hardware you have or need and then move forward on it. I spent the past 4 to 6 months changing things around to get all of the stuff that i wanted. The nice thing about all of it is that you can change and take stuff or add stuff to the system with just a head unit you are stuck not with a computer thats the cool part. Here is a question for yea--Do you have a idea of the system layout? computer,amp,speakers ect.

    Some long over due updates. We got the wiring to the PS done, complete with a boot switch, got the PS, mobo, and HD installed. Still need to get the GPS and DVD along with the screen. Unfortunately, I'll be working some long hours this week, so not sure how much will get done. But anyways on with the pics:
