    About the fourth page i was impressed on the progress. the fabrication was incredicble, then i saw the "finished" product and i wasn't so impressed.

    I think the paint job and curves near the screen need a little work. A little more fabrication work is needed, straighted out those lines. Use a block sander to get even curves.

    You obvioisly know what your doing and probably just rushed the last 10%

    We all have done that. Anyways excellent work, i saw the concept picture and said.... yea right, but you pulled if off nicely.

    I think you are the kind of guy who is a perfectionist like me and will do those last finishing touches.

    BTW don't forget to do about 6 coates of clearcote. A satin would look really nice

    I agree with what has been said, dont stop now, get a good featherweight filler to get everything looking even. evercoat makes a great one. layers of primer, layers of primer (importaint enough to say twice, I thought my piece was going to look allot more flawed then it ended up judging by what i saw after the last coat of epoxy), its amazing how many imprefections you can get out with the light filler and primer, the more rubbery the primer the better for the curves.

    I know you want it in and working but trust me in a few weeks any imprefections are going to make the voices in your head impossible to shut up. (this comes from personal experience with the voices )

    Haha, You guys are completely right on. I am extremely happy with my install and it is good I will admit...buuuuut.....last night when I installed it into the car I was thinking to myself "there's a curve I don't like", and "you know the frame of this screen should resemble the frame around the stereo display", and "i am so happy to have it in.....but....I think the last little bit was rushed a little" haha . I can't rest until it's right, so I know Escalade took a bit of a beating today (he gave a little too), but seriously guys, constructive criticism is what gives us the other guy's perspective and a window into possibility beyond ourselves. We get to choose what to listen to or not to. My feelings will never be hurt by somebody elses opinion. I'm so very happy I found this site and got involved in this forum. I only hope I can help others from my experiences and knowledge. I am a perfectionist when it comes to my own creations. I'm going to calm down a little right now and spend some more time with my little girl. But, you can all rest assured that I will share my completed and also slightly altered install. I have lots of plans for the computer, electronics, and software which I would like to put out there for suggestions as well, since I know this thread mostly focused on the dash fabrication. Thanks again for all of your input and support, it has been very helpful and motivational.

    TO BE CONTINUED.......

    Dude, awesome job! You get the sound all hooked up too? I can't wait until I get a few days off to pull apart my car. (And it gets a tab warmer than 35F ) 15 hours shifts rock my world.

    Really, awesome job. I hope you don't mind if I steal it.

    Thanks, the sound is one of the first hurdles I got over. 15 HOURS !?!?! Dude, you gotta lay off the clock a bit. Hope it goes well for you. And you are more than welcome to steal all of my ideas. I've been stealing people's ideas for my car since the day I found this site.
