fine work there!
Well this was my first attempt at any type of (major) fabrication and I'm pretty happy with how this came out. I had the Metra kit for the Mazda6 and decided to mold an Xenarc screen in. However by doing so I also had to relocate a few buttons/circuit boards which is still a work in progress. Nevertheless, more pics to come of the completed job. I'm glad I took this job upon myself as I can use it a building ground for fiberglassing my own box in the future.
All primered up:
Thank you! It was quite the enjoyment and learning experience in this project. I'm currently working on another piece that I relocated one of the circuit boards to. Hopefully I can finish it soon and send all my interior panels to the body shop.
Lookin good amigo. You still using an HU or is it PC to amp direct?
Dont tell me to shut up, I'm Rick James ******!!!
PC to amp directly, didn't really see the point of a HU anymore. Is there a benefit towards using a HU with a CarPC?
there are two reasons I use an HU with my PC, one, i already spent loads of dough on one before i decided to delve into the PC project, and two, i use a mac mini, so in the absence of any real front-end or GPS software, the HU fills that void nicely. Even nicer is that i can switch between the two with zero load times.
looks good... any pics of the screen in the car ?
Upgrading pc 99%
No pictures of the screen in the car, I'm still a little while away from that unforunately.
I'm about 90% finished with the last panel in which I relocated my A/C circuit board to, it's coming out rather nicely although it was a bit more of a pain. After that I have to test fit the center console and send it off to the body shop. The excitement of putting it all back to gather is getting me anxious. I haven't had my CarPC in my car for almost a year now due to certain circumstances.
More work done!!! I've done a few more things since my last post, including finishing this panel as well as starting work on another one and building a box to hold my CarPC. It's coming along well.
This the panel that I moved the A/C, rear defrost, and circulate buttons from the dash to this panel. The curve made for a lot of work.
Where did you end up locating the Hazard switch?
