    1st Gen Expedition iPad mini dash

    Started off with the simple dash with dash kit and Pioneer 80prs.

    Wrapped the front of the screen with plastic so that it was protected from resin. Also taped off the back so that I could create the rear mold.

    Re: 1st Gen Expedition iPad mini dash

    Marked out the outline of the rear housing of the ipad so I could begin hacking it up.


    Put some filler on and began sanding with an 80 then 150. Of course before this the rear housing was glassed in from the back.


    This is after cutting it down with a 220 then wet sanding with a 220.

    Subscribed. Can't wait to see the finished product. I know this one won't be a disaster like mine. I can live thru your work on this one since that's my exact same radio bezel

    Sorry this is getting worked on between customers (as all fabrication gets halted when quick install customers come in due to being such a small business) and I had high school reunion this weekend.

    Updates to be posted soon though. Possibly another of these same dash pieces due in as well.

    Ready for some new pics?















    Still have some higher grit sanding to do to get it as smooth as possible. Then a coat of SEM texture coating, sand with a 400 and then choose the color the dash is going to be.
