    Audi A4 install - LCD finally customed into dash

    So after miles and miles of fiberglass and sanding I finally get this thing primed and ready for final painting. Its a Xenarc 7" touchscreen LCD. I have all the other components except the Opus - which I will order this week.

    Man I am so stoked to get this thing working!

    Great Job!!

    That custom fiberglass mold looks great! Do you have an pictures of the various stages of construction?
    btw... what is the vent under the screen for?
    Are you keeping the HVAC controls in your A4?


    Can't wait till I have time to do something similar with VW GTI

    what grit did you use for sanding
    Ive seen someone using 1500 in a post
    i used to do some bodywoork and we used 80 180 and 300

    also hvac is used to descibe industrial or central air units not car units right

    yeah that looks good Sunglasses - is that carbonfiber sticker tape?

    the little fan grid (someone asked?) sucks in air from the cabin for the automatic climate control to determine the cabin temp.

    98Explorerxlt: HVAC is a common term for the A/C unit in an audi. I used 100/300/400 sandpaper - and then 1000 between my final coats of satin black. The HVAC controls were moved to where the ashtray was.

    I'll post some pics of the process later today.
