Smooth work - looks factory.
What are the two rectangular switches (?) next to the screen?
They are two position momentary switches that are connected to a Hagstrom keyboard encoder. So far they do nothing, but eventually I'll use them to navigate the playlist and do other things.

Very nice setup!
It'd be really slick if you could motorize the screen.
Nice redo of the dash! It looks very very slick now! That fiberglass/body filler can be tricky ... feels smooth till you get the paint on it, doesn't it?
Are those switches to the left of the LCD Carlin Contura II's by chance? I am asking because I'm looking for some good switches for both my M3 and my brother's Range Rover.. I thought the Contura II's would be good for the M3, but they look like the ones on your dash and they are too big! .. but on second thought they look very OEM rover, so whatever they are, i'd like to know so I can use them in my brother's install. BTW do you have them hooked up to anything?
BTW did you switch screens? It looks like you were using a Xenarc-type 7" in the first incarnation of the dash fiberglassing but in the second pic it looks smaller and much brighter...
Yes. They're Carlins. They look ok, but they click when you press down. That bothers me a little since all other switches in the Rover are silent. They're hooked up to a Hagstrom controller and will eventually control the audio player. It is still the same screen. I think the photo may be better.
Sigma_X, sorry. The Sonique skin is a dead (and discarded) project. Too many limitations + buggy player. Sonique would crash on me 25% of the time. Also there was no way (that I found) to change the font size.
