    ABS Plastic??

    i hear of people using some thing called abs plastic(1/8") to build custom dvd consoles and stuff. Where do u buy it and how easy is it work with? I heard of people gluing and bend pieces to create a mold and then using duraglas to build shape and contours to the mold. Anyone ever heard of using this stuff??? thanks

    are you sure you are not just thinking of using fiberglass for the whole thing?

    You can buy abs at several places on the web. It's not that bad to cut, it just melts really easily so you have to be careful. If your just putting a screen in the dash or something though. It's just as easy to use the stock panel and plastic filler.
