    iPad moulded to Centre Facier

    Hi All,

    Over the last two weeks I have been experimenting with putting an IPad into my mates GQ.

    I have made it so you will be able to dock the iPad and charge when in car as well as being able to use it outside of car.

    I had to relocate the Air con unit and move the single din head deck a little lower.

    Parts needed;

    Second hand Centre Facier ( so you don’t destroy the original )
    iPad Air 2 ( or IPad of your choice )
    3mm Acryllic plastic
    Fibreglass matting
    Fibreglass catalyst
    Fibreglass Mould Release
    Painters tape
    Alfoil
    Masking tape
    Epoxy glue / Super glue
    Septone car filler
    Wet and dry sand paper ( 180/320/800/1200 )
    Your choice of primer, paint and clear

    I'm interested to see how this comes together. Not that I have a GQ, but I love these kinds of different DIY projects.
    Keep us updated on your progress!

    Created the mould by covering ipad in alfoil layering it in painters tape then smearing mould release over the top. Waited a couple of hours and released the ipad from the mould.

    Test fitted on dash where i wanted it then trimmed the dash down to suit, used epoxy glue to hold it in place and trimmed off the excess fibreglass.

    Used car filler to create the shape and sanded for a week added primer then sanded some more and repeated.
