Looks ok man, but bondo WON'T hold, it will crack and you will have to have it redone. O and if you didn't see mine, here it is....


I molded it with fiberglass, and then used bondo to get the little imperfections out. It's not perfect, but close, not bad for my first try :D

And I'm building a car ps myself, and doing GPS, MP3, ect.

i have a car PC, just baught a toshiba lap top.. perfect for programming MS in the drivers seat.

tv screens are overrated, since when are you so bored you need to watch tv while driving..

If your doing it for passengers, (they cant see it clearly from that position.) they sell hand held dvd players at walmart for pretty cheap:tup:

Witch are exactly that, cheap. And what about GPS? and I have a few other tricks up my sleave. And your wrong, passangers can see it from taht point of view. Also, if you run a carpc with a touchscreen in the dash there, you can actully eliminate the deck and run all your music via mp3 or your cd drive for the pc. And if you do that you need to have the pc close for music selection.

Were talking about using the pc for completly different things. I'm not talking MS and engine management. I'm talking MP3's, Video games, movies, GPS, :cough: camera :cough::D and those sorta things. I'm not into the "Lets spend 3k to make our car run 3 sec. faster in the 1/4 mile" kinda thing. I have bolt ons and some stuff, but my car is being used for comfort and to have some different, and cool stuff. And please, no one take that wrong, I'm not making fun of the people who are moding there car for speed, but all speed can do for an 18 year old like me is get me in trouble8D

That doesnt seem very practical or safe. Besides, just driving my 6 with the cd player is more then enough comfort for me,
When i was 19 i did the same crap your doing, Then i realized how stupid it was and sold it all for alot less then i got it for. That crap loses value very fast. I sold it to my bro who has a big extended cab lowrider dualy and honestly i didnt sell it to him for low because hes my bro, i sold it to him because hes the only person that would buy it. Its just a waist, Passengers have to be trying to look at it, so there not comfortable, and its distracting,

And how is sinking 2g's into a turbo kit to put on a car that already runs fine? and how is putting more boost on a motor that wasn't built for it safe? I'm not being an ass, just pointing out that moding a car at all can be considered "unpractical". And that is all a matter of opinion. You may have gotten tired of it, but that doesn't mean I will. And no, it is comfortable to have my passanger see it, beleave it or not. And I may put visor monitors, or I may put a 13" lcd touchscreen somewhere, but thats my secret:D

well one way it's safer is that you won't have the screen to watch the up close pr0n shots of jenna jameson givin head...lol

speed kills yes...but watching TV and trying mess with your int4rAut0 cr4p00ter is more distracting and more dangerous while driving.

ok, well its no more distracting then playing a cd in a cd player. You make a play list of songs(like a cd but in a file on the computer) and then you just select it before you start driving and then let it play, and just reach over and touch the skip button(like on a cd player) and it changes the song. How is that more distracting then the cd dech?

yes, but not when driving. maybe at stop lights and such. but how would you be able to do anything but play music when your driving? you can't. Its just like having gps in the car, you stop and look at what you need, or you have someone with you that will do it. And I am going to have someone with me a lot anyways, so most likely they will do it now me anyway.

Im actually still contemplating it, i dont know if i want the hassle of a turbo kit, but at the same time i know it would be ALOT of fun. Im sorta leaning towards building pipes, selling them and taking the money and tax's this year, and getting my self in the direction of getting into college and getting a home.

Also if i were to finish this kit, im mostly doing it as a hobbie, not for racing or speeding. I was also thinking about doing Auto X.

And 2k invested in a turbo kit can easily resell for more then 2k. As in the electronics, there outdated in a few months and sell for half.

So there for, its a pretty safe deal. like i said, i had the screens and dvds and game system ect. Its very distacting, even when you convince your self its for passenger use only.
