Sean Clark, from mp3Car, takes a look at the 2011 Ford Fiesta at the Ford booth at SEMA 2010 before the show starts. We find an iPad embedded in the dash, relocated HVAC controls, and relocated USB, AUX, and DC output jacks.

This Fiesta also sports custom paint, tires, and some beautiful fabrication work, housing 12 inch subs and dual amplifiers.

Mp3Car caught up with the car designer later to talk about some of the motivation behind the project and everything that went into the car. Stay tuned for more.

The pictures look more like it was just wedged in there and supported by the shifter & console rather than with "beautiful fabrication work". Is that the case? Is it the rest of the install that has significant fab work but not the Ipad or an I missing something here in the Pic?

Jay is a great guy (yes taller then myself at 6'4"), he did a HUGE amount of work trying to get the tonneau to function correctly (along with most every other part as well), hope it can work as designed for their next showing.

True, about Fords placement of the truck, the tailgate faced a small wall, with the tailgate open it would have been less then a foot from the wall so being the swing out toolbox maybe gets to a 30deg angle facing the side of the truck it would darn near impossible to see unless you stood with your back on the wall.. oh, well, while in Fords booth they write the rules...
Sad thing is that I'm taller than Jay. LOL (6'8") I look forward to being able to see the truck in person as I haven't got to since it was stock.
