  • 99 Maxima install

    OMFG was it a pain!

    First off one of the screws holding the center console decided to go AWOL; thank God my dad keeps lots of random screws and one fit in...

    Next - ******* lilliput ****ed up their wiring; they labeled the 12V line as ground, and ground as 12V. So when we connected the screen as per instructions; the cap in the power filter burst; we quickly found the shens, redid the wires and amazingly enough the filter worked and all is well. I am freakin stoked - I still need to reconfigure the sound since it sounds sorta iffy for me; but some initial tinkering seemed to make it work fine. GPS works; OBD2 needs to be set up properly - but most importantly - everything is working!!!!


    Crappy wiring... yeah....

    Distribution block in action!

    Everything tucked in and arranged!

    How the center console looked before:

    Vents and shifter knob off! Was easy to take off:

    Enter center console off - quite a mess:

    My friend Chris like sot get jiggy with the console ^_^

    All cleaned up and nice ^_^

    The new look of the center console:

    That's pretty much! Fire away your questions!

    Looks good man. Did that just fit a factory hole or did you have to do some cutting.

      Straight drop in. The metal brace that hold the deck and the cubbys is a perfect fit

                If you guys read the Centrafuse forum, there is a plugin floating around that integrates iGuidance 3.0 into Centrafuse.

                    hey i really like the setup. this is my first post. i have a 97 maxima and i want to do something very similar. did you use the lilliput screen that was already in a double-din housing?

                    if not, then how did you actually secure the screen?

                    i am kind of in a dilemma. i want to put this in my maxima now, but i am probably going to get a new car in about a year (an acura TL). everyone that has made a carPC in a TL has mainly used the xenarc screen. so... would the xenarc screen also fit in the maxima (with minimal modification... so that i can put it back to how it is now before i sell the car)?

                    any help would be appreciated. thanks!

                        Nice Job , How did you increase the size of the font in iGuidance , Yours looks so much bolder

                          Can you post the model of your lilliput model and confirm wether nor not the lcd was custom finish or did it fit perfectly in the factory bezel.

                            how much did this cost you to do?

                              nice install, does your sub float around in your trunk, or is it secured somehow? Looks a little out of place where it is. Good job!
