Default My OHC mod

I was bored with the stock look of my OHC so I made a change to it. I figured since I didnt have a garage I didnt need the garage door opener compartment and being my ranger is a standard cab I didnt need two dome lights. So I figured why not make a spot for my GPS. Well heres some pictures.

I removed the garage door opener door and the dome lights. I made the structure out of fiberglass.

I ended up having to make a mold of the GPS unit so I can snap it in and out. Then after alot of sanding and bondo here is the end product.
I have it wired to one of the lamp buttons to turn it on and off. Its not completely done yet. I still have some minor touch ups to do but over all it works great. The screen isn't hard to see and hear it just fine. So what do you think.

Thanks guys. Im happy with it. The only problem with it is the display for the compass and temp. It keeps flickering and cutting out so I was thinking of getting rid of the display and adding a digital volt gauge for my amp in its place.
