    2006 Acura RSX project

    Hey guys, I've been lurking the boards for QUITE some time now and have just started my project for a carpc, I'm just too lazy to write up the specs, but I'm planning on using my desktop HP 503n, which I had lying around.

    But, here are some pics of my fabrication so far.... I'll probably work on it more later tomorrow

    Epoxy'd the housing of the monitor to the bezel


    First layer of bondo and sanded


    Second layer of bondo and sanded


    I'll most likely put another layer and try to fill in those impefections tomorrow. Post comments guys, thanks alot

    I did some more bondo layers and sanding but I didnt take the pictures because I forgot, but I do have pictures of primer



    Then after a lot of layers and sanding with the primer I tried a coat of semi gloss black



    Tell me what you guys think...

    looking good, I also have an RSX. Do you have the S-Type? Let's see some pics of the car! Feel free to ask me if you have any questions.

    nah, I don't have the type-s, the insurance was sooooo much more expensive than the base XD

    Mine is completely stock minus the carpc. Looking forward to those pictures!

    mine is silver. Here is a quick picture:


    I want to put some xenon headlights on, the stock ones are kinda weak. Besides that, I don't have any future projects. The black looks really sharp btw. It's a shame Acura discontinued the RSX.

    Hey guys...don't mean to thread jack but I have a quick question. I too have an Acura RSX, I'm looking into doing carpc as well. A lot of people on here complain about the Lilliput LCD being washed out during daytime. What are your experience with it? The dash of our car is kinda molded toward the driver so in my mind, I don't think it would be THAT bad. I want to start this project but I'm hestitant about the LCD.

    I like how the dash is angled towards the driver, especially during the night. The glare isn't that bad IMO, but it is kind of annoying. I have the 629GL, and I can still read it while the glare is on there.
