    Volvo S60 in-dash project

    Just wanted some feedback (good or bad) before proceeding and putting a new Xenarc (the one in the pictures is fried by now, ) in there.

    The computer will be in the trunk, DVD player and USB connections in the glovebox or center console, near the handbrake.

    Pic 1: This is my car
    Pic 2: The interior before (yes that IS a volvo hu-803)
    Pic 3: Test-install of the screen (that's when I fried it)
    Pic 4: This is how I drive around now

    The Xenarc is mounted in a 2din adaptor for the volvo that I bought at my garage for 25 (30 $, I guess). Lots of sanding and painting went into that If anyone is interested, I have a lot of pictures of the process...

    edit: here is more info JC-S60's ...erm... S60!

    Thanks guys!

    This gives me the courage to go on...
    btw, the clima-control panel isn't mounted as it should in the pic, so the gap will go away

    That looks really good. I think you shoulda centered it. Nice job though!

    Centering was not possible, considering the construction of the panel... but I will put a volume-knob to the left of the screen, as I like the control of it

    I actually connect a simple mp3man mp3-player to the stock 300w amplifier with my custom-made cable.

    You have a huge hole in this pic...


    How is it not possible? Maybe more work but it's possible.

    Yeah, a lot more work

    In fact, there was a 2 din hole in the panel I bought from volvo, and I made the xenarc front fit in there. I would have had to make a coplete new opening and reposition the mount brackets for the panel.

    Too much more work for me...
