    mazda MX6 carpc being installed

    well today i finally started workin on the dash!

    got most of the parts

    gonna buy a few things tomorrow

    here r some pics

    i am having some new ideas for radio! as i want some sort of radio!

    might get digital and add it 2 the pc in that case will have to get amps

    or keep my current radio "SOMEWHERE"

    it wont fit in the ashtry area a bit bigger and there's the ECU! but will give it a shot soon see if i can work something out there

    ok in the 2 spaces between the moitor and the dash am gonna have a USB plug and Audio in. spaces filled with Body filler as its easier 2 work with and should be strong enough

    here u go

    please comment
    i need some ideas and stuff

    as u can see the top part on the LCD is sticking out a bit thats cuz the plastic behind needs a bit more cutting and sanding down! could'nt finish it as my flatmates are sleeping... will do it tom tho can't wait...

    thanks

    ok today was more like "learning about body filler" day!!

    so the 1st time i just hooked up the USB and audio put some of that filler fixed it with hardner all good

    1 hour later checked it out and it was hard! tired to test it but it wasn't glued hardenough and just peeled off!!!!
    so i figured i didn't put enough harder

    another mix and a lot more hardner!! was putting it on the monitor face (without the usb or audio) and it got hard while i was putting it on!! crazy hardner!!!

    so made another one with less hardner and its good
    here r some pics from the day

    i got smokey GREY paint
    and primer

    but forgot to get the lacquer!! DAMN IT!!


    looks like am gonna be sanding for a while!!


    some ppl told me that the bodyfiller is not a good idea and that it will crack in less than a day??
    i did a bit of sanding and it looks ok to me
    not sure...

    You didn't use filler to tack that screen to the dash did you....? You seem to be using an awful lot of filler too - it's easier to build up than to take off!
    Your stockist should be able to recommend something to fill the deeper gaps, then use P38 to finish the surface.

    thanks for the info! i've already started and got the stuff
    so might as well do it with it and see how bad it goes!! its my 1st attempt
    and am sure am gonna fail the 1st time and do 2nd and 3rd attempts
    don't mind wasting time as long as i learn something new
    for the big spaces i think am going to use something else not bondo as it will crack there a lot easier! thinking of getting some sort of liquid plastic! i've used it before and its really good but it needs 12 hours to dry!! and is a lot A LOT harder to sanddown!! anyways after work lastnight i did 45 mins of sanding down
    i must say its better than i thought it would be
    as u can see from the picture its not THAT bad hehe
    i would say another hour or a bit more and it will be ready for adding a few touches here and there

    what do u think?

    Gotta love a KLZE!!!!!

    I just put the same motor in my MX-3 Project car (same one my carPC is in). I had to use an MS8 manifold because the straight neck manifold would hit my brake booster.

    hey
    yeah klze kicks ***!!
    i had an mx3 and wanned to drop a klze in but it would've cost me way too much money
    and figured just buy the mx6 imported from japan with the klze
    its a nicer drive than the mx3 too!
    but the mx3 would be quicker with a klze
    still both cars are really nice
