Wow... see what can get done when you don't have the co-workers helping you out on the back seat of the car?

Had to play with warranty repair work on the car during lunch yesterday so no fiberglass updates. Will have some today after lunch.

Got some glassing done today. Used a combo of 2/3rd short hair fiberglass, and 1/3rd liquid resin to fill in the gaps on the backside of the radio bezel. Then took resin jelly and filled in the front gaps and kerf cuts on the latch cover bezel.

I will continue with another thin layer of short haired fiberglass on top of the bezel to add some strength. Shouldn't take much to blend the section in.

Sanded both pieces and applied a hot coat of short haired resin milkshake. I touched it one too many times as you can see. LOL. I used painters tape to edge off the milkshake and cover the CD-ROM hole.

5-15 updates:

Bezel coat #3 applied


Coat #4 applied (icing)





During lunch today I will finish feathering out the icing coat, and do some minor spot filling, sand one more time (wet), and then shoot it with some primer.

CarPC things are changing. Kinda sucks.. but it's all in the name of SQ. My creative labs 5.1 USB sound card is becoming a little flaky and I believe it's got some odd artifacts when being pushed. Not to mention it's not ASIO compatible. So I'm ditching it for a new Gigaport HD 8-Channel ASIO USB sound card. Figures this sound card uses RCA connectors and not 1/8" stereo.. so I also ordered (3) KnuKonceptz Krystal Kable 2 Channel 1/2M Twisted Pair RCA cables. Nothing like blowing another $160. Hopefully this corrects the issue.

This is true. Glad to be the guinea pig. Guess if the sound card doesn't fix the issue I'll have a 6 channel sound card available for ya cheap.

Well done on changing out the sound card. Creative is very good for surround or gaming, but for real hi-fi it just doesn't cut it.

Just tried out my bargain basement 6.5" midbasses that looked good on paper.. but they SUCK in reality.

So I bought a pair of Peerless 830946 SLS 6.5" Woofer - 4 ohm.

Got a good bit done during lunch today.

Took a forester bit and hogged out some material to allow the carPC bracket to rest in. Also have to relief cut a spot for the plastic gusset on the vertical piece. Then bored 2 holes behind the bracket piece to allow cables to come through the bezel. 1 USB on each side, power on the right side. The carPC bracket leaves about 1/4" space behind it for the cables to sneak out.

Also notched the blocks on the back of the trim piece to allow for the LED strip trunk light, and used a power sander to knock down the majority of the high spots.

She's almost there!

Ha, thanks. Part of me wishes I could mold the bracket in.. but it's just not possible without a huge bulge. Simpler is better in this situation.

Those CDT mids I bought way back in the day. One has some surround issues from hitting the door card in my focus. Eventually I will get around to replacing the surrounds.

5-23-2011 Updates:

Took the whole day off to work on the car. Didn't get as much done as I would of hoped. Seems to be the case. Anyway I first tackled the amp rack. The hot glue I used to secure the LED strips didn't work out. So I took off all the glue, then used 1x1 stick on tie downs w/1/2" screw in the middle... then cable tied the LED's in. Next I removed the old soundcard.. then discovered the new soundcards RCA jacks are too tight to fit my RCA ends... so I took it apart and used a step bit to open the holes. Works great now! After some debate with the stereo bezel piece I got talked into taking more time with the primer and such and painting it. Came out pretty nice.. it's not perfect.. but damn nice. Also removed/primed/painted the strip above the glove box to match. I filled/carpeted the trim piece. Turns out I didn't have as much carpet on-hand as I thought. So the backside of the piece is less than stellar. Going to re-carpet it after the show. Applied grill cloth to the sub grill.
