    Working everyday on the project

    I have the m2-atx with the voom pc case that came with bogus screws so I went to home depot to replace them. Here are a few pics that I took from my camera phone . Not like the ones from before because this is 2.0megapixels not like my old one (1.2) . I ended up canning this idea because I got a bezel for the double din impala to glue it into, I just didnt wanna waste the pics. so I dremeled the piece i have for the lilliput. Its smaller. I sanded it, primed it, and painted it. When I get home from work I will glue it into the bezel.I will cut a piece of acrylic to be a second backing inside to hold the inverter and all that. stay tuned. Oh and the car is much cleaner now.

    bondo gets crappier by the year it seems.. when i first started this the quality was excellent but now its almost guaranteed to crack. I would try alternate brands. I Believe Nexson is the person that could recommend higher quality stuff.

    Here are pictures of the most recent attempt

    Here is the third mobo. my m2-atx and all that stuff. I cut out the screen holding part of the lilliput to put it in a Metra double din bezel.

    Update: I'm using plexiglass to hold the inverter and all that stuff. I'm going back to the depot tomorrow to get more nuts and bolts to make it work right.

    Remote wire for the amplifier? - Try a toggle switch connected to a +12v from your iginition switch to the amplifier remote input.

    Remote control? - Try an winMCE remote or look up winLIRC to build your own. I have a firefly UHF one that works real well.

    Okay I assume now that you mean when is that when you mounted the LCD the IR LED is covered and the remote will not work? I think you have a couple options here. The most simple would be to carve a small hole, the size of pencil eraser, in front of the IR sensor. You may need to add some sort of clear plastic lens or you'll have to point the remote straight down the hole. You can salvage this from old electronics like a satellite receiver, an old YORX brand stereo, or similar device that used a remote.

    The second option would be to desolder the IR sensor from the LCD monitor and extend it using some wire. ***only do this if you are good at soldering and have the patience to do a good job. An improper job will render that screen useless and add one more piece to your growing pile of busted electronics.

    If I'm totally off base on what your asking let me know and I'll see if I can help you.

    Best of luck.

    I haven't had any experience with fiberglass resin and matting and all that, but I have used the Bondo brand fiberglass jelly before. As it dries, you have time to flex it to the way you want it. But it dries rock hard too. My friend Saul introduced me to it.
    I have bad luck with vehicles...
