    The modified front housing part now goes to the paint booth for a fresh coat of black plastic fusion so the silver will not show at all on the final assembly. While the paint is drying it time to start figuring out how we are going to solid mount the PCB's (printed circuit boards) within the chassis on standoffs. This is another part that need a lot of thought and one final build. You may need to extend some wires at this point to mate your horizontally mounted boards up to the vertically mounted LCD screen. Please note its not recommended to extend the secondary wiring of the inverter!! (OUTPUT SIDE) This can effect the inverter output and worse case your backlighting won't fire if the wires are longer than the inverter can handle. Next step, epoxy.

    I just bought a 2007 RAV4, and want to install a CarPC again. I have been following this thread for a long time, and I think it might actually be of big interest to me. There is an OEM 2DIN trim plate for my car:

    http://www.newtoyotaparts.com/product/index.php?id=2185

    So it looks like I can do this. Question is, do you think this metal cage will work in this situation? The picture shows some of the mounting hardware, but can't tell if I can make that work with the 'cage'. I would be buying a black Xenarc TSV 7", and don't want to paint at all (since the OEM kit has the exact same finish as the other components). Thanks!

    Electron, you may wish to check ebay for used radio+bezel sales or trim kits.

    Ebay Link for Trim Kit

    A lot cheaper than $80

    I just bought this: Link to Corolal Radio with Vent Bezel - I'll even try to sell the radio to help recoup some of the cost.

    It will work as long as your original radio follows the DD standard. I've actually sold a chassis to a member with a toyota truck and it worked out great. He did turn the chassis upside down for clearance though.

    The kit I linked is the real OEM kit, meaning texture/color match perfectly. There is a coupon out there that brings the price down to $59, which makes it more bearable. The Metra and Scosche kit don't have a great finish and stick out from what I can tell.

    Great thinking on getting that radio for your Corolla, wouldn't work in my situation, but that's a great idea for sure.

    The kit is made to be bolted up to the aftermarket trim so you should be fine. I cut 5 units on my router today so they are readily available.

    BTW, I just sold my HQCT module with all the cables but im upgrading to sat. radio FM has too many commercials for my liking.


    Also I will try to add more pics to gregs build shortly, I've got a few more parts on the way and it is nearing completion. I've been stupid busy with work, life and other projects in general.
