    Fiberglass Overhead Console in 05 Caravan PICS!!!!

    Did this today for a customer at work. Customer has an 05 Caravan and wants an overhead monitor installed. Says she has been everywhere locally and most several places said they cannot do it due to the fact that the headliner has a pretty gnarly little hump/curve right where the customer wanted the overhead mounted. Overhead being used is an Alpine PKG-RSE2. Customer said one shop tried to freehand cut the plastice shroud that came with the monitor to match the headliner but it was not to her liking so she came to me. Now on to the pics.

    pic, of the headliner right after i taped it off. You can see the curve/hump in the center thats where the monitor is going

    This is what the monitor will be mounted to. It is cut to the exact match of the screen

    Our piece of wood mounted to the headliner via a steel brace running under the headliner

    Shot from the otherside so you can see the space that needs filling

    made a sleeve so that we can build up the duraglass

    More Pics

    Used duraglass for this as it is pretty thick and easy to build up to the extent that was needed


    After a few mins of sanding

    i removed the sleeve as it was no longer needed plus it blocked my wire hole
    I didnt have any grillcloth that matched the head liner so i just used black

    Nice. Couldn't it have been rabbit edged and fleeced instead of all the filler? Not criticizing just curious it is good work. Do most roofs have a rib you can put a brace on? I have an 04 Tahoe and rear HVAC controls rattle like a ***** and I was gonna take em out to make my own deal.

    Once again looks good.

    I've had it off but I didn't dig any deeper than the plastic crap that was up there. I gotta take the headliner down anyway.
