    Oh yes one other thing im assuming the dash you have may very well be the exact same material mine is the hardend crap plastic wrapped with a thin layer of contact paper depth vinyl.. what method did you use for paint as far as sanding etc did you rough it up with 60 then go up to 400

    The steering wheel issue...There are lots of little items we aren't quite finished with yet....like the rear door panels. We can't find a steering wheel we like that is unique, yet not flashy (ie solid billet). We had thought of modifying the existing steering wheel to include a wireless keyboard...But that will have to wait for a while.

    Also, I'll post more pics of the rear fin camera.

    As far as the dash goes...yup its made of plastic. DO NOT USE 60 GRIT!!!! The scratches it leaves are very deep. Start with 80 grit to remove the "grain"...then go to 180 to smooth it out....Prime the ever lovin crap out of it (multiple coats of a 2K primer-surfacer with a flex additive - wait 10 minutes between coats). Then wetsand with 400...seal and paint. Here's a pic after priming....

    By the way....don't use bondo-type plastic filler on this plastic...it will eventually crack. There is a duramix sandable filler (2 part epoxy with mixing tubes and a special gun) for that.

    That is too cool.
    I'm putting a 15" touchscreen into the dash of my '91 silverado, and I'm glad I seen yours as I was having trouble picturing it.
    There is no such thing as gravity, the world just sucks!!!

    Yes....Actually...the surfboard is the cover for the custom made "canoe" that holds the computer and audio pre-processor. The canoe is made of wood and fiberglass and is bolted directly to the car.

    But yes, the cover is actually a surfboard. And, the rear view camera above the rear doors is mounted inside a surfboard skeg (bottom fin).
