    "How To" install lilliput in firebird / trans am dash

    THE FOLLOWING IS FOR INFORMATION ONLY. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.
    - If you mess up and turn your bezels to junk I am not responsible.
    - If you destroy your $200 plus lcd screen I don't want to hear it. I am not responsible
    - If you hurt yourself in any way I am not responsible.
    - In no way is this the only way to do things, this is simply the way I did it.

    That said.

    Materials:
    Lilliput Bezel
    Firebird Radio Bezel
    krazy glue
    scrap abs plastic
    bondo or plastic filler or epoxy
    a rotary tool with cut off discs or a hacksaw blade will work
    a ruler
    a marker
    sandpaper 180, 320, 600

    PRE WORK NOTES
    1) I would definitely buy a spare radio bezel from somewhere so you can work on the bench and have ZERO downtime or inconvenience with your daily driver. I bought mine for $5 bucks on Ebay, $10 seems average. You have no excuse not to buy a spare.
    2) You have a choice, you can just purchase just the lcd bezel or you can buy the whole monitor. Bezels can be purchased at http://www.digitalww.com/LH007.htm Whole monitors can be bought from many many places, just Google "Lilliput monitor"
    3) When you have the monitor, you have to take it apart to get the bezel. Instructions to take it apart can be found at the following link. Don't be intimidated, the bottom line is there are only like 12 screws to remove. ONLY GO as far as the instruction to disconnect the speaker. DO NOT GO ANY FURTHER http://www.mechatroniks.com/wrx/lili-diy.html Once you have the bezel off come back here.

    Good, with the Lilliput bezel removed

    That looks awesome
    I plan on putting a carputer in my 84 camaro.
    I am going to journal the whole job engine redone and interior

    MY car caught fire last summer and been depressed but love the carputers so much because i'm sort of a tech lover.

    going I.T. School in september

    will be bookmarking this page sweet.

    any exterior shots of your car?
    Genius is not a gift , but a logical result of concentrated effort along some line of endeavour.
