Post HOW TO...*Headrest TV Tutorial*

well this is just a fairly simple tutorial but i decided to create it since the turnout is fairly good...

Items required...
1. image of a Headrest TV... (i have provided one for convenience at the bottom of the page lol...this one works fine...)
2. clear sheet of plastic... the clear plastic from diecast car boxes works fine
3. some clear glue... or any glue that turns clear when it dries
4. Scissors or knife
5. Styrene Sheet
----------------------------------------------------------------------
*INSTRUCTIONS*

Step 1.
First copy an image of a headrest TV...you can use the one provided or
any other one you like...now paste the image of the TV headrest into a computer program that will allow you to scale it down so it is smaller and so it will be able to fit onto the headrest of your diecast car. Then Print it out.
*Note*
This will take some trial and error and you might end up printing out a bunch of small TV's :P

Step 2.
Now that you've printed out your TV you gotta cut it out
Next Grab the clear sheet of plastic and cut out a piece that is the same shape and size as the TV.

Step 3.
Grab the glue and just put a little glue on the piece of paper with the TV on it(put glue on the side with the picture on it). Now place the clear sheet of plastic that you cut out over top and let it dry...

Step 4.
Next you take the styrene sheet and you cut out a border that will fit around the TV. Paint the border any color you want...(preferably so it matches the interior of your car

Step 5.
Once you paint it glue it on over top of the TV and the clear plastic.

Step 6.
Your TV is finally done and all you have left to do is glue it to the back of your headrest...


**************************Note******************** *****
Youn can also use this to make navigation systems, bigger TV's,
in-dash Tv's and flip down TV's

ENJOY
BART

P.S. Srry that there are no pictures provided ... i do not have a digital camera i only have one that uses film but i might get to it and take some pictures
----------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the picture of the Headrest Tv i Provided

Word gives you a possibility to adjust pics size by mm.

First: Measure your headrest.
Two: Adjust the pic to match you headrest.
Three: Print
