    just got back from London, time to work on my PC again.

    I'm evaluating front end packages right now. I want to find the right combination of front end / gps software since that is my main reason for building this system.

    Hey guys, sorry about the long delay. I've got almost everything I need except a screen. I'm going to start fabricating my bezel now that the weather is warming up. what screens/bezels are you guys using?

    Started Fabrication tonight.

    Here are some of my start pictures. I used Bondo-glass after epoxing the metra double din kit to the LCD Bezel.

    Should've masked off the edges of the LCD opening to keep the lines cleaner.

    Also, I don't know how the metra kit is for 02+ A4's, but my 01 A4 double din metra kit lost its rigidity after cutting away the din slots to epoxy in my old Xenarc. During fit checks, it fit well, but once the screen was installed and ready for final integration, the metra kit just did not fit right at all.
