I ran into a snag. As I mentioned, I want the tablet to be able to flip down, and allow access to the headunit and/or EQ that will be installed behind it. I did a lot of planning, but didn't take into consideration, that the USB wire and plug that goes into the headphone jack...would stop it from doing so.
I had to choose between a fixed install, Cutting a notch for the wire to pass thru, making the tablet flip inward (didn't want to cut factory mounting holes), or widening the opening. I went with the wider opening.
Here I marked the new opening, and cut it out. I used the pieces I cut out, and CA glued them to the bezel around the tablet. The tacked everything in place, where I wanted.
I started filing in the gaps. I went with the plastic weld method this time. Trying to avoid fiberglass, as much as possible on this. To fill the bottom where the cubby hole went, I used the bottom portion of the factory radio opening...to get a straight line, and retain the same curvature around the corners.
I have 2 more gaps to fill, then I can start on the "flipping" mechanism. It can't be flimsy.
I want the gaps to be real small, but still let the tablet flip freely.
In my notes, the "cam lock" is a 8 x 1.25 x 80 mm screw passed through an appropriately sized socket. I forget if you need one or two of these. The passenger side may not need one. This screw through a socket idea certainly isn't factory, but it worked well for me the one time I used it. Besides, the factory cam holder requires access to the rear of the heads, which is not easy.
I bought a set of chrome wheels for my snow tires... hehe
can see the orange coils on the front, the back is dumped. back needs new shocks/springs like the front got. id rather the front end get dumped but those are 300m special springs I had powder coated.
