    where would I go to get a small piece of black lexan real cheap... just big enough to cover the stock stereo hole in my first gen.. or does anyone have some laying around. I knew where to find some back home but I'm not there anymore so..... oh sorry, 3/16 or 1/4" preferably

    Get a piece of plexi and paint(Krylon) it on the backside...that way it won't scratch, then mount it over your hole....stereo that is.... /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Home Depot sells them in pieces as small as 12x12 for 1/8" thick smoked. It's back with the windows in the glass area.

    any hardware store should have plexiglass or go to a glass shop. no need for lexan on something like that. We normally keep 1/8 and 1/4 plexi in stock.

    i work for a sign company here in virginia and i can give you a piece free, but the shipping cost would be more expensive than if you go to a local sign shop and ask for a scrap piece . or as everyone else said , go to a hardware store and buy a small piece. good luck ,

    Lexan doesn't come in colors.....it is clear......what you need is a piece of ABS plastic......McMaster-carr has it......12"x12" 1/8" th for $8.00

    hehe, well it won't fit in the S-10 cause that Sony C910 is too deap for the changer to plug in and I"ve already had to cut out all I can for that to fit in so...out the changer came, and it's like 6 years old so...glovebox mounted with a hidden display... mounting the stock s10 stereo in a custom fiberglass console so it can be consealed. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
