    The Car is a Dodge Neon 2001 exterior tunning, this the car:
    El carro es un Dodge Neon 2001 modificado exteriormente, este es el carro:



    Here is a pic of my origin dash but with stereo relocating.
    Aqui esta una foto de mi tablero original pero con el estereo rehubicado.



    Im from mexico, here is dificult get touchscreen, and delinquency is hard, becouse that i used a cheap and simple tft-lcd 7'' screen, i open the screen, for can work easy with the dimensions of the screen.
    Yo soy de mexico, y aqui es dificil encontrar un monitor touchscreen ademas la delincuencia es grande y preferi uno economico, abri el monitor para poder trabajar de una mejor manera con las dimensiones de la pantalla y no rayarla.



    First i used the frame of touchscreen and put it in dash, after i put plastiline for molding the inicial work.
    Use plastilina para moldear una base para el marco de la pantalla



    I used fiberglass over the plastiline
    Use fibradevidrio arriba de la plastilina



    Get the inicial fiberglass mold.
    Aqui esta el molde inicial



    Integrating the mold with original dash, here i used more fiberglass and some of bondo for detail the fiberglass
    Integrando el molde con el tablero original, aqui use mas fibra de vidrio, y pasta para detallar la fibradevidrio



    Here is the dash after hours and hours to sandpaper the work
    aqui esta el tablero con el molde despues de horas y horas de lijar



    Here the dash finish and mount in the car... is not finish, i need detail the interior frame and paint dash with original or similar dodge textured paint, help me with ideas.
    Aqui esta el Tablero terminado y montado, no esta terminado me falta detallar el marco interior, y pintarlo con la pintura original que tenia antes de iniciar la modificacion, ayudenme con ideas.

    NOTE: For the moment i used tarantula soundstream stereo with dvd player and tv tunner (can play .jpg, .jpeg, .avi, mp3, tv etc)
    NOTA: (Por el momento estoy usando un estereo tarantula soundstream con DVD y sintonizador de television que puede reproducir dvd, jpg, .avi, .mp3, .jpeg, etc.)



    Other pics of dash mounted
    Mas fotos de el tablero ya montado





    Carputer:

    La siguiente semana iniciare a trabajar con la computadora que montare en la cajuela del carro, la computadora que usare sera una p3 1ghz, 512mb RAM, y tarjeta de video con salida de television.

    looks good!

    maybe it's just the picture, but the last image makes the screen look like it's crooked, is that the case?

    textured paint should be easily found using google.

    Looks good. A lot different approach to what I'm doing, but to each his own.

    Instead of going textured paint, why not paint it to match your exterior paint?

    Also, what's the name of your body kit and where did you get it? I really like it and want to get something similar.
    {Xenarc 700TSV} {Celeron M 1.3 ghz} {ASUS mATX mobo w/CT479} {MX440 128mb AGP} {1x512mb RAM} {3.5" Seagate 40gb (rated at 350 G's)} {M1-ATX}

    from experience - the textured paint is much more durable and stays looking better longer.

    it doesn't show fingerprints as easily, or imperfections. that and color matching has been done quite a bit already....(doubt that matters though)

    Yo estoy en la ciudad de mexico y te puedo conseguir una pantalla touchscreen a buen precio.

    En cuanto a la pintura, claro que es posible! Ve a cualquier autoboutique especializada en pintura automotriz y veras la variedad que tienen. Si no, localiza al distribuidor o proovedor de la marca en Mexico.

    leme test my spanish reading skills from 12 years ago...

    I live in Mexico City as well....and I have a touch screen in my car that works well? (unsure on that last part)

    Find a shop that specializes in automotive painting. There is no local distributer for the paint you want in Mexico?

    god, I bet that's so far off it's funny...haha

    LOL thats what i was thinking too...I alwasy sucked in spanish class...

    But thats the general gist i got as well...

    And it makes sense...A shop that specializes in painting would be able to get what you needed...also they might have ideas on the textured/not issues.

    Not that bad... I was actually telling him that I knew where to find the touchscreen in Mexico city.

    I was also telling him that the paint should be easy to find in a a bodyshop specialized in paintjobs, either that or try to locate the distributor for any brand that produces texturized paint. That's how I've found must of the weird stuff I have...
