Hi can you give a list of stuff you used please? because this very nice install and i am jealous lol i want to do mine like that. wondering how you got it so smooth.
First i cut a frame in 16mm MDF
then i placed it right using hot glue.
Then i used kitty-hair (Plastic Padding, fiberglass) for stability and to get the right curves and so on.
sanded it using 80p
and then fine speckle (i think it's called?) (Pastic Padding PP100)
and sanded using 160p
and PP100 again
sanded using 160p
sanded using 600p
sanded using 800p
sanded using 1000p
- and then the painter used spray speckle and sanded it, and painted it.
on the 10th picture. what is that? and the 12th?
10th is Kittyhair
ang 12th is PP100
VERY VERY NICE WORK!!! i have one question tho.. why didn't you just mold the lili bezel into the dash with that bondo stuff?(you know, so it would look like the lilli is part of the car)
Carputer: 2.8Ghz P4, 512 RAM, 120gb HDD, WIFI, TV tuner, CDRW/DVDROM, Slot load DVD in front.
