  • 2006 corolla s oem install

    Hello there!

    this is the story of my install on 06 corolla s.
    I want it to look as clean as possible.

    This is my second project, and I love every minute of it (except when thing goes wrong )

    spec:
    intel d201gly2
    1gb corsair value select
    lilliput 7" led 629gl 70np
    m2-atx hv
    bu 353
    seagate 3.5" 320gb sata
    amplifier soundstorm 4f400
    stock speaker
    and of course, road runner by master guino
    with digital fx skin from master johnwpb

    I'd like to get everything installed in 3 weeks, so far I am in schedule.
    Still waiting for the power wire, speaker wire and vga cable to arrive.

    For those who curious,

    I chopped off the button and a little bit cutting on top of the screen.
    The screen is too big for the opening, a lot of cutting need to be done.

    update:
    I ordered power wire and stuff online, it won't be here until next week.
    Can't do anything until it's here.. a little bit of delay

      Hey Skuller,

      That bezel for the monitor looks really good. Where did you find it?

        it's metra install kit
        95-8204

        Slight modification required to make it fit the original radio opening.

          Hi, I have a 2002 Corolla.
          All ready have the 2-din metra kit at home, but don't know how to attach my 7" to it.
          How did you manage to get it attached after cutting? Glue?

                that is perfectly strong to hold it.
                I'll get some more pictures in the next few days, been busy for a while.

                    I just moved in to a new house, too much thing to do.
                    not sure when can I continue this project.
                    Anyway, wow that screen looks exactly like mine. Looks very good!

                      how did you guys get the metra adaptor to fit? i tried it my housing and it doesn't quite fit. i'm wondering if the US vent panel is a different shape/size to the euro model?
                      The epitome of Function over form and is probably the best Car PC in Europe.

                        the metra adapter fit nicely on my vent.
                        but some modification required to make the monitor fit the adapter.

                        anyway, I got the computer installed.
                        Pictures soon, as soon as I can find my digital camera from all those moving boxes
