    BUT...
    since I used too many layer of plastic to protect the tab, it can't fit perfectly in the dock and the extension was not straight

    and then, with a perfect mix of resin and hardener I fiberglassed it

    It's a very tight fit, but it's ok

    I bought a small can of "stucco metallico" (don't know the exact translation, maybe "filler"?) and covered the fiberglass

    Now, I have to sandpaper it to smooth and make it clean.
    And since I think I use too much filler, I have a lot of sanding to do....

    Thanks, I'm doing so many photos because it could be of help if someone wants to try (and maybe made better work!). I have done other steps, later I'll post progress!

    Grazie Larry

    I've just done a little rework in the shopping list post with a list of steps I'll try to follow in this project.

    Finally, after a lot of work I have completed the extended dock.
    Pics following!

    after lots of sanding..

    Little update, I have started STEP 2: MAKING AUDIO/POWER CONNECTIONS and I'm having problems with the usual audio noise coming out from the amplifier. It is generated by the dock when inserting both audio and power cable. I used very cheap audio cables I have laying around, but I have purchased some quality cables from ebay and waiting for that to arrive. I also bought one car audio noise filter to try all possible things.

    Today I will post some pics of the amplifier and initial audio setup.

    Yes I've checked it, now I use ground from the pre-existing radio system but even connecting to a big screw under the dash nothing changes. I hope that quality wires and noise filter will solve that.
