    1994 Suburban Carputer project

    Hi again

    I have been working for about 2 weeks so far with some prefabrication of different things for the puter project.
    Lot of work, and fidling.

    Started today with working on the center console, as you can see i am making a template for flush fit...
    The switch panel is from a old VCR.
    I have made a front of polyester for this, with led´s in the back. the plan is that the led´s will shine between the button and the panel.
    The defa timer will also be fitted in this.
    The DVD will go in the side of the console, i think,,,,

    Some update on my work.
    the center console is starting to shape.
    I have tried it in the car and it fits nice.
    The top of the console will be in two parts, so i can reach the components if needed.
    Must have some opening, since the front and back will be out of reach.

    1994 Suburban Carputer project(ideas wanted)

    Hello again.

    Its almost getting there now.
    The center console is almost done.

    Anyone have a good idea for the finish, i would like too match the pattern on the interior, but thats not easy.
    Anyone have any experience with the "body spray"(the one used on the outside of body, that dryes.)
