    My New Car PC

    Hey Guys & Girls

    Ok some of you may remmber my old Car PC in my old GSI which was sold to a member on here if you still about m8 get in touch would love to know how you getting on with it)



    Anyway onto the new one

    The Car

    Vauxhall Astra Coupe Bertone Edition SE2 - 2.2 (140bhp)




    The Dash

    8" Linitx Widescreen Moulded into the dash - http://linitx.com/product_info.php?c...roducts_id=877

    The PC

    AutoCAN's ICPC010 - Din Size Car PC



    Current Dash Progress




    I then glued the bezel into place and started on the filler, yeah i went a bit ott lol




    After a lot of sanding + having to start totally again due to i bugged the bezel i ended up with something that’s looking like it should (thanks Chris @ Linitx.com for sourcing me a spare bezel) (Sorry about the bad picture , phone was on infinite focus opps)



    Ok more sanding more filling more sanding etc etc ... getting there






    then i did some more sanding lol

    and put on a greay undercoat .. this brings out more inperfections which i can fill once its dryed .. but im starting to be happy with it

    Looking very good, did you put a plate or anything over the hole for MFD, or is it just rammed with filler?

    How much did the pc cost out of interest?

    it was filled with a little bit of plywood first and then filled so i did not waste filler lol ... as for the pc it retails at about 1.2k but i got it as a xdemo of a m8 on digital-car for around 300 :-)

    Update 30/11/06

    Ok more imperfections sorted .. only bit i got to work on now is the top curve as its not quite round and it can be seen that i have filled something in .. its going to be hard and im cursing over it but im sure i will get there eventually. other inperfection is the little one next to the far right heater hole.
