    Step 2: Figure out how to rotate screen

    1. origanal idea was to flip the screen around. One side being a face
    plate and the screen on the other.

    Well I built it but the servo was not strong enough to flip the screen
    and hold the weight of it. So I decided to just make it rotate from
    left to right. which the servo could handle but...when You take into
    account touching the screen and making turns the servo still wasnt
    up to the task.

    So I asked the knowledgable people here and someone suggested a
    metal geared servo and sure enough it was more than up to the
    challenge. I mean I can rip turns in my little vr6 and that screen
    doesnt move.


    This whole project with exception of the opus and xenarc was built with
    whatever I could get my hands on locally (san diego ca).

    PIC EXPLAIN


    A. inside box which spins and houses the zenarc. I did not want to
    void the warranty of the xenarc so i went this rought. the box is
    bigger than i would have liked but more on that later.

    B. outside box which is basically the frame of the whole project. this
    gets fiberglassed for strength.

    c. this part of the origanal dash cage unfortunatly i dont have any
    pics of it before. basically i just attached the cage to the bottom
    of the main box with some L-brackets. One goal was to angle
    the radio consol slightly towards the driver.

    Step 3: Time to fiberglass that main box structure

    note: I had never used fiberglass or bondo before but i am good with my
    hands so i did alittle readin then attacked it.

    1. I didnt really have problems here, it didnt need to be pretty just
    somewhat sturdy.

    Step 4:
    time for some fiberglass bondo

    1. Well no real problems here either but next time i will deffinatly go about a
    different way. I think next time I would use a better product like the rage
    line of products as opposed to home depot genaric bondo. Although i must
    say it is holdin up pretty strong been like 4 months in the car and no sign of
    crackin or flakin.
