Intro: Mobile Phone Mount for Classic Cars
That's what this instructable is about.
There was no stylish phone mount for my Iphone available.
Though, I decided to make it myself.
Step 1: Milling the Pieces
I started with cutting hardwood to the right size.
In order to get accurate edges, I made a fixture as a guide for the mill.
At first I milled the outlines with a rounded milling tool
Step 2: Further Milling
Then I milled down the whole area, but I left the rounded outlines untouched
Step 3: Create a Window for the Home Button and the Display
I drilled a hole for the home button and tapered it for easier access and saw out a window for the display
Step 4: Glueing Together What Belongs Together
Before glueing the two parts together, I created room for the lightning plug in the bottom of both shells.
I used two component epoxy adhesive to fix the connector and the two shells together.
Step 5: Finished Item
after sanding and oiling the surface I realised that I choosed the wrong wood.
But anyway, I am quite happy with the first attempt.
I attached it with two screws and an aluminium angle bracket to the dashbord.
It works flawlessly, no matter how hard I drive through the curves. :)
