    nicely done

    Thats some nice fiberglass work. How did you wire the overhead display? I don't know where to run the wires.

    I know I'm pulling a dead thread from the grave, but I forgot I had posted the message, and never responded to anyone. Thanks for the compliments.

    kickercivic1: I do all my own work. It feels so much better when you do everything with your own hands.

    The Forchdog: The overhead display wasn't that hard at all. You have to cut a hole in the headliner for the bracket to mount to the roof, so I just ran the wire above the headliner. You can probably just tuck them up behind it right by the windshield.

    wkolodny: Unfortunately, I forgot to take construction pics. It took me a while, as I could only work on it certain evenings. I cut a piece of plexiglass to fit in the existing bezel hole, and then cut a hole that just fit around the touch portion of the touchscreen, and then fiberglassed that in from the back side. Then I used more fibreglass to smooth out the front. I actually had to add the foglight switch in that bezel, as the second bezel I bought off a guy didn't have it, and I needed it. I actually wrapped the whole LCD in saran wrap, set it in place, and used more fibreglass to build the guides that would hold the LCD in place right behind the plexi. Another piece of plexi became the mounting plate for the controller board, and that piece of plexi then screws into the fiberglass right behind the LCD to hold it in place. The only thing that bothers me and I have to work on is the damn radio surround that keeps popping up every once in a while. I didn't notice it was popped up till after I took the pics.

    that overhead lcd is hardcore. . .how did you interface it with your air ride to show amt of air that are in the bags?

    i wanna do something like that instead of a regular gauge when i put air ride in my car in a couple months

    EDIT:. . .nevermind it would be cool if it was interfaced into the carputer but after some poking around i see its a standalone air managment system

    cool nevertheless
