    So I've cut my acrylic which I've decided to use as a bottom lip which will keep the tablet in place. Nevermind the color and rough edges, there's still some sanding and painting that I will do. From the looks of it you think that this is not secure enough but if you were holding this and take a good look closer you will know that is will be secure.

    I will also be sanding the upper inside edge of the double din opening at about a 45 degree angle (give or take) so that the top of the tablet will sit back a little further. I plan on lining the inside of the bottom acrylic once in place with some type of soft fabric (felt, or something) and attach it so that it adds even more snug fit and prevent some minor scratching on the side of my tab. I can't wait because this is simple enough that I should complete this before the weekend is over.

    There also will be a small notch cut on the right side just enough for my USB cable.



    Stay tuned..

    This morning I started the modification on my dash kit. It all went well until I got to the charger connector. That part of the cable can't really bend beyond 40 degrees if that over and over. So I ended up having to cut this ridiculous notch on the right side. I wasn't happy about that but my work around to this is to mount an acrylic piece following the shape of the front of the dashkit where the notch was cut. I will essentially make a "slot" that will cover the ugly notch with an opening at the top so that the connector will slide down as I slide my tablet down in place. The slot will be mounted at a slight angle and will eventually be painted along with the rest of the kit for blending....crazy business.

    It's hard to explain all of this but you will just have to see once I'm done. Here are a few more pics so far from this morning.










    Here you can see the crazy notch I had to cut..no worries I think I have a plan to cover this. Worse case is I buy another dashkit and rework this.

    Progress Update

    Here are the latest pics. I roughed up the surfaces and attached the bottom lip and "slot". I used 3M adhesive for the bottom lip and for the slot which I rigged. I used a small hinge which is screwed to the dash kit with a piece of acrylic screwed in the middle of the hinge, sort of like a wedge. This is how I managed to rig the hinge to be stationary at just enough angle for the USB charger connector to slide down.

    I will let this sit overnight then spray paint tomorrow.

    This is the front view and you can see what I am planning for this crazy slot that I ended up cutting. This will blend though after its all finished and painted.




    This is the view from the bottom.




    This is the view on the side where I have the hinge mounted which will serve as the slot for the USB cable connector. I know this may be more dramatic than I planned or than any of you may like, but this works for me. So I'm improvising...what of it??

    This is the view from the rear/inside




    Stay tuned for more tomorrow..

    Paint time!

    Yeah so...I decided to go ahead and put my first coat of paint. As warm and dry as it is outside it should dry rather quickly.

    OK. I promise this is my last post tonight.

    The paint is dry and I am able to simply drop my tab in the new mount. This was a very simple (not so elaborate) mod but its gonna provide me with a nice and quick mount/unmount of my tab plus it sits more flush with the dashkit vs. how I currently have the Galaxy OEM car swivel mount.

    Tomorrow I will install this in my car which will replace my old mount. Can't wait!

    Not bad. Do you just leave it on when you are not in the car? Or do you take it out with you? You a2dp from your phone?
