    2005 WRX STi Car PC Project

    So far just have the bezel made (needs some wet sanding and paint). Still trying to decide on the hardware for the PC and also waiting on an Alipne 9855 HU. I'll post more pics as it progresses.

    JUst did a rough cutout of the oem radio trim to fit/center the Xenarc trim. Zapped the xenarc trim into the oem trim, filled the excess gaps with strips of abs plastic then used Rage Gold lightweight boddy filler. Didnt need much filler as the cutout for the Xenarc screen was very close. Sand with various grits, down to 220 grit and finished off with body shop shooting a primer filler on it to fill the last pinholes and imperfections. Still needs some minor wetsanding before I shoot it with some SEM trim paint.

    We may start offering to make these for those interested. Just a thought at this point.
