    Plastic / Fiberglass Fabbing?

    Anyone do any custom work with plastic and/or fiberglass here?

    I'm working on removing the outstandingly shitty RHB 430N media unit with a 130 or something from 2012 JK Rubi. I'm planning to replace the touch screen portion with a Nexus 7 connected via bluetooth to the 130 (so audio playback will work with the factory speakers/steering wheel controls), tether it to my phone so I have data anywhere I have cell signal, and then I don't have to worry about the crappy blocks on nav input, video playback, better navigation maps, etc.

    The problem I'm now facing is that the only kits I can find online are for iPad mini, and connecting an iPad natively to an Android device is not possible (requires jailbreaking the iPad and installing 3rd party apps). I don't want an iPad or Apple device in my Heep, so Android tablet it is, and surprise surprise, no one makes plastic kits for Android tablets.

    I'd be willing to trade my 430N for your 130N + the fab work, no extra charge, or if you don't have the 130N, let me know how much you'd charge for this.

    Glass work isn't hard with a couple youtube lessons. Search fiberglass speaker enclosures.

    The supplies were maybe $100 at most and 2 free tops to cut up.
