    Yeah Optima's are not cheap, but hey you get what you pay for, you stated you wanted a GOOD one

    Lindy, have you ever taken your ride to the track, I'm curious what she'll do in 1/4 mile.

    LindyM, very nice car indeed!

    Do you have other pics showing the guages and the whole dash that you painted silver etc. I like how your interior is looking. Thanks!!!

    This is one of the sickest SC300's I have ever seen! Nice carputer setup you have there. You have given me ideas for my next screen application, as I am tired of the fold-out Xenarc 700IDT I have. Are you having your auto tranny built by Lentech?

    I wish I was just CLOSE to that good at fabricating.
    Very VERY nice!
    My opinion is my own.

    Its only going to get better with a new .063" aluminum chassis Lindy hired me to fabricate.

    We worked on this design in AutoCAD to come up with a simple, modular chassis to fit his requirements. I really like this design and will most likley produce more of them in the standard 7" DIN size. This one is a custom size since the Lexus has a 2.5 DIN. The modular style of the chassis also helps with the shipping since the parts can be disassembled and shipped flat. I also like the fact you can remove 2 screws and the top or bottom will flip down to access the mounted PCB hardware.

    I did not mount the middle shelf since I am not sure if your going to use it, and/or what its position will be. Don't want stray holes all over this hot build.
