Hello everyone.

Doing an iPad dash for a friend on here, his screen name is 03F150MrSBF ;

I'm doing this, kinda cheating:cool:, using a kit from a company coming up called Fifield Fabrications.

Here's the link

Fifield Fab Custom Car Audio - Home (http://m.fifieldfabrications.com/Home.html)

He will be coming out with more products soon as well. So keep referring back and you will see new products posted soon.

Goals of this dash were to blend it as close as possible and keep it low profile and flush with the dash. Onto the pics:naughty:

Started with this

The way it "opens" or unlocks and allows removal

Started looking at this and realized I could cut out that center bar, the ipad kit will separate the AC controls.

Saved these clippings so when I went to melt the plastic on the dash kit to the dash, "weld" I would have some plastic weld fuelé

Started welding/melting the dash kit to the dash

Thank you, I have a Silverado, same dash, and I'm gonna be doing mine once I'm done with this one.

Been talking to the owner. Be patient. He's got a lot of stuff coming out in the next few weeks/months, give him some time he will make you a happy man.


Great start man!

Thanks JT, hey PM me man I've got a question for you.

Bad weather combined with school has not allowed me to really even touch this since I first posted about it, hopefully it warms up so I can get the **** ball rolling on it
