    Exclamation Kia Spectra 2002 with Xenarc, please help me out guys...

    Here is my computer, I want to post it here so you guys can help me out. All I can say " this project is really hard and take a lot of times " .

    Computer:

    Motherboard ECS 741GX-M
    Xenarc 7'' TSV
    AMD Mobile 2200 M
    Corsair 512MB DDR333
    WD 2.5 5400 60GB
    DVD-slim slot
    GPS Bu-353 with Iguidance (I think)
    Road Runner
    .

    Here is a computer: finished ( still working on software )

    sorry, it little messy.



    here is the dash, the dash is kinda small for the screen. So I used the dremel to cut it to fit with the screen. After that I used the bondo that I bought from Autozone, I don't know if I bought a wrong bondo or what, Once I tried to apply some bondo to the screen, and it seem like the bondo didn't dry, after 20 mins still wet, Then I decide to clean up the bondo and ask you guys some question. Anyways here is my dash with the screen and the bondo I bought.

    Dash:


    Bondo:


    On the picture of my dash, and the things that I circled it, there were 2 hole on the right end and the left end of the screen, can you guys give me some information like what material I can use to close that hole? and what kind of things I need to use to make my dash look smooth, and what kind of sand paper I need. I got some paint already. Thanks. I will follow you guys intruction and will post the pix.

    well done! i suggest putting more epoxy on the back make a nice build up and that sucker wont go anywhere..which is better and will cause no cracking inthe bondo.
