    Centre consol update

    time for a wee update on the DivX player radio thingy saga.

    for those who remember i bought a divx player for the coupe but foound that it would not fit because it was the 4.3 screen size one.
    so i set about cutting up the spare dash to make it fit.. that was the easy bit!

    Then thought, hey i keep making these gauge holders, how about actually fitting mine then! so............i did.



    then though.. i have some paint left that i got halfords to make up.(totaly the wrong colour but thought i canna take it back so might as well use it!)

    well happy.......................then







    cataloy sunk! bugger

    add some fibreflass resin to your filler mix. will make it stronger and less likely to sink/crack
