Here's another installment of crazy Ali's fiberglassworks
I purchased a bully dog watchdog for my car a while back for the sole purpose of reading and erasing check engine lights while also providing tons of information and data about my vehicle while it's running.
Well, I'm not one for mounting stuff on the windshield or in goofy mounting locations so I decided to create an area for it right in front of my gauge cluster to provide additional information (in addition to my pillar pods) within my line of sight.
So I started off pulling the trim above the steering wheel off, sanded it down with 36 grit, and drilled some holes for FG to adhere to.
Then I took my bullydog watchdog and taped it up (to keep it protected) and made a frame around it with various small woodworking pieces purchased from Joann fabrics.
Fits like a charm! I left the area on the right side open because that's where the removable mini SD card is and that's also where the firewire update port is.
Then I mounted the frame to my trim piece with CA glue (which is also how I adhered all those little pieces of wood together), and built a frame to wrap with fleece later.
I wrapped the skeleton in fleece and right now it's sitting in the garage curing after I soaked it in resin.
stay tuned for more updates!
