looking good so far
Observe the masses and do the opposite
lookin good keep us updated
From personally experience, you might want to put in more reinforcement, especially at the back. So melted ABS (with acetone) and/or epoxy resin would be good. Mine has some small cracks already on the filler.
this should not crack i hope (its sprayed with plastidip )
SLOW DOWN, you need a lot more prep for the paint and time between coats.
It took me over amonth to do my dash mod and painting (not solid time), but you can't rush it as you need to rub down the whole console, 3-4 coats or filler primer, rub that down and then 3-4 coats of top coat paint.
You'l need lots of reinforcement behind the parts you fit, I used hot glue, fibreglass and some filler (not a lot as that should be to smooth the joints not make them!).
Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
it has took me quite a while to prep this (have been doing it for a few months lol 4th may) just wanted to get it all uploaded at the same time. And using the plastidip adds a different finish as i did not want a completely smooth finish.
See I am also doing a project a bit like that. I'll post some photos when I get it all up and running again. I did have an 8" touchscreen just mounted to the top, but some pikey nicked it. What I've done now is take all the surround for the 5" screen in the top out and I'm gonna fibreglass a 7" into its place. I have taken some measurements and I think it's do-able. I'm also smoothing the lines between the top and bottom halves, and round the top of the dash to the third, top, part.
I really like the shape of your idea pantha007, but it does look like with some more time and effort put into that dash it could have looked a whole lot better. Smoothing the bits that I've done already is a pretty fiddly, exacting job, and fibreglassing the screen in will be even bigger and more fiddly. I anticipate spending a lot of hours getting it ready for paint. Purely constructive criticism, I really like what youre doing overall.
Out of interest, what sort of spec is the system running the screen?
