    98 F150 10.4 in-dash and misc.....

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Ezekiel and I am installing a 10.4" datalux touchscreen in the dash. To go with it, is a Toshiba 2ghz laptop.(still don't know where to put it?) I would like to add a universal docking station for added usb ports, 5.1 sound, printer and serial port. Also added is a holux 213 usb gps. I first started with this idea:




    I then finish the bondo work, but i change my mind about the stereo location.

    The location of the stereo was to far off, and it didn't flow right. The truck is a 5 speed manual, so the stick is in the way. Here is my new idea:


    Here it is with a little black primer:



    With the guard dog Max

    I still need to cut out a place for the a/c controls under the lcd (where the stereo used to be) I am going finish fiber glassing the whole thing, sand, primer, base coat, black paint, clear, color sand and buff.

    Here are some misc pics of the truck under construction:
    Dash before w/ some cuts already

    Dash after

    Dome light w/ silver paint and a 3" blue neon light

    Custom lcd in the visor, covered in black suede

    JL 13w7

    The 13W7 is powered by a MTX 81000D amp 1500 watts rms, 3000 max. The polks are powered by a 250 watt amp. Can't remember the name. I am currently saving for a Mcintosh amp! All of this is controled by a alpine phantom face CDA-7998. There is a dvd player built into the center seat and a playstation one in the center console. By-the-way the seats are custom buckets.

    Everything needs to be finished! Dash and all plastic parts need to be glassed and painted black. This is just the being of a long project. The 13w7 ported box is coming out for a custom sealed box w/ 2 seats in the back. the visors will hold a 7" wide screen each. the dome light is being painted black and the neon light is coming out for some blue leds. A center channel speaker custom moled into the dash. carputer mounted under the center front seat. Also want to mount a hotswap drive in the glove box for the video and music storage. I need a alpine 5.1 processor unit for the sound. I do not want to get rid of my deck! I am currently looking for mcintosh amps for front and rear. And even some focal utopia 3-ways w/ the silk dome tweeter option. I could really go on forever! But need to finish what i have right now.
