I've made up a new front bezel to go in the tissue box slot. It has got the carputer on / off button, the ICC screen toggle button, the power led and an infrared transceiver in it.

I've never used fibreglass before, so it was quite a steep learning curve for me. It worked out OK though - but only just OK. I plan to make a new one when I have the time. Anyway, time for pics

Next time I will put a plastic sheet on the table - god it makes a mess

Only 2, I thought it would take more to make it strong, but it is a strong as hell with only 2 layers

Yeah, I had a piece but it was too small. I'll have to steal one from a remote control
