I look forward to seeing it in 2 weeks big kev

was it hard building a fibreglass moulding? how much is it for fibreglass?


didnt wanna pay etc in case i stuffed it up mate and there was a bit of effort in it so it was professionally fabricated and wired up for $400....wiring my invertor was a lil diff so hence the money...altho the mould built and fitted still probably would have been round the $350 mark.

yeh mate that would be fine.....not bad for price .... i paid $300 for my invertor but it was a 350w pure sine wave invertor with dual GPOs(outlets) cause I need to connect the screen and xbox...shouldnt really use double adaptors....depending how u connect this too u may need to purchase 4 guge cabling,terminals and even distribution block.

Yeh remeber tho thats maybe continual consupmtion...its the intial power on that will hit the invertor....LCD computer screens can consume up top 75w some even higher when their turned on xbox over 80w when powered on so u can see where a 140w invertor unless it has an intial surge rating would be able to run them just not start them which would make it a bit pointless.

I may look at selling my dash with custom mould to take my 17" JVC LCD Monitor/TV...as a bundle if ppl were interestd ... painted professionally in a matte black and looks great.....I need to look out how big a pain it is tho for me to remove it as I have a couple security systms wired thru it.

Im wanting to go down a different path with mine so..might be selling

I wont sell the mould seperate I dont think as its actually attached to the case of my modded xbox...so id sell together - mould isnt painted but is sanded and ready for paint/covering.

XBOX is chipped, modded with EVOX on 120gb drive...all the software and has the latest XBOX MC. 2x normal controls, 2x wireless logitech ones and a few big games.

Not sure as yet...mould cost me $400 as is without paint or covering and was moulded tho to go with the dash, LCD TV and so on so might sell as a ready to install package...all that would be needed it to weld a vesa mount in...which was easy enough to do...thats was only done so thieves if they broke the passenger window and got in or at it couldnt just rip it out...its a pain in the a*** to remove once its in the air unless you know what ya doin.
