CLIMATE CONTROL AND RADIO HOUSING

The old climate control center console housing had the open top for the oil pressure gauges, so I decided to get one with the closed top, off of EBAY. As is common with the console housings, the sides had come loose from the inner plastic shell, so it was time to get out some contact cement and some clamps, to attach the sides back to the inner frame.

The housing may need another application of adhesive, in a couple areas but as you can see from the last picture, it is much better that it was originally. 

Brackets will be made to bolt onto the top corners, where the bolts go through to hold on the face plate, to mount the bracket for the Dell Venue 8 Pro. This arrangement will give a much cleaner look without the big mounting stand bolted to the top of the housing.

Although not exactly sure how the new mounting bracket will be configured, it has to be better than the big mounting I tried to use originally. 

Thanks for visiting my blog,
