    I think its looking good!

    My suggestion though, unless you are really fond of the the wood grain, I say just start sanding away at it. There is a lot of sanding and finishing with bondo that you could do to make it seamless and flush.

    And after that, if you miss the wood look, certain places sell burlwood laminate.

    Let me first say how well i like your keyboard mount... that really looks good up there. It is the best that i have seen around here. I think that it is due to you choice of keyboard. Secondly i would like to address the awesome cubby hole that you utilized to place you Computer in. I bet when that pannels on nobody knows where the computer is. In my setup i had to take over the glove box.

    Finaly i would like to say that your pront piece needs some work. I wouldn't consider it as done. Some suggestions:

    Check out ebay or a salvage yard to pick up a couple of those dash pieces to work on... hopefully you will get it right on the next one. Get out the epoxy (to glue the bezel in there) and bondo (as a filler) and start sanding away. Keep filling and sanding until you get all of the pinholes out and all of your lines stratight (no wavy lines) add a layer a primer every now and again to clrealy see the area that you need to work some more.

    Then you will probably want to keep that wood grain becasue it matches the rest of your intereior so purchase a wood grain laminant as Pudge suggested to go over your work. I would say get rid of the wood but thats just me.

    Anyways don't get discouraged. Perservere

    Lookin better each time i see it. Keyboard looks great there specially that it just fits. Dash lookin good, but you could use some refinement work there to help give it more of a "one-peice" look.

    If everything nice and secure, like antimatter said, start bondoing away at the dash and smooth out all the lines where you embedded the lillyput frame and then paint the entire dash in one style. Whether that be a from a laminate woodgrain overlay or to paint it a sngle color you like.

    Good ole E-PC like I use in my car. I was thinking of just getting a laptop car DC power supply to power it from since it's 19V at 3 Amps. Any reason you took the cover off?
