I didn't expect too much more then that. The only problem I had is that I have an internal "Motorola" modem that I thought was my Boost.
Next up for the Boost is to make the data cable charge. Should be easy with the charger voltage at just above 5V and the data cable being USB.
Starting with Bondo Glass and working up to bondo putty I went through about 6 layers before getting to this point.
and not to mention about 20 sheets of sand paper.
then went for the paint. I got a can of plastic friendly black with a texture to it.
Here is the screen installed.
Finally running my OBD-II
I have some wires to re-route, relays to install, and the little cosmetic adjustments but over all I really enjoy the install.
what would it cost to have you make another dash just like that one?
good fukcing god, that screen looks way to big for being there. It looks like the dash is on steroids. You did do a awsome job with the fabrication of the screen into the dash, looks OEM.
PS: rhuller, did you copy my sig? lol....... Its cool if you did, I was like scrolling fast and didnt see the name and was like why is all my stuff zero now....
Hijack yeah i did, sorry should have asked first. does the screen block the functionality of those two vents above?
It cool, I dont mind at all..... It looks like the Vents have been shrunk.
