    oh one more question ... what kind of bondo did you use? I was at the depot the other day and thay had 3 different kinds: the normal auto body repair kind (red can), bondo with fiberglass shavings (blue can), and some Bondo Home Solutions All Purpose Putty

    i got the home solutions all purpose stuff, as i thought it would fit my needs better than the body filler crap.

    I have a jeep cherokee as well, but i dont think i could do without those vents. Here in Indiana it can get pretty cold in winter and pretty hot in summer. So i am lost at where i can install it....

    I do have my computer in my arm rest as well though

    Shakes,

    I used the regular body bondo. There's nothing wrong with that stuff at all. It works quite well. Just make sure that prior to primering you wet sand it really good with 500 grit to get it smooth. No need for anything else. I've actually never used anything else.

    Pogue1000, where is your screen then? As far as the vents go, heat is not a problem. The car still heats up plenty well. Like I said, it just blows harder out the other 3. I can't even tell the difference because I usually leave the heat on the floor so it doesn't blow into my face anyhow.

    The A/C may be a different story in the summer. Don't know yet, but I think I'll be fine. It really is the best place to put the screen to make it look professional.

    Otherwise, just get rid of the ashtray down below and put it down there. Hard to see and use though.

    Right now i just have i adapted it to a cell phone mount... It works ok,, but i want it built in. I dont see heat being a problem since i rarely use those vents for heat. Its either defrost or at my feet. Now AC i might have an issue. I am going to look into it. But i gotta find out where i want to relocate my head unit.

    i wouldn't think AC would be bad ... as the same amount of air will come out, it'll just be stronger out of the other vents...

    I plugged the vents with metal tape that you can get at hardware stores. It is used for ducting. Not duct tape, the tape is actually metal and sticks very very well and is heat resistant. It looks like aluminum foil with a sticky side on it. Comes in rolls.

    Cheers.

    If I were you I'd use the blue can - I have seen regular bondo crack (little tiny cracks) after about a year of repeated heat exposure inside a car. The blue can has fiberglass shavings and holds up much better. It would suck to do all that work and have the finish go bad from the heat...
