    Since i didn't have a top storage dash i had to cut it with my dremel and make space for it



    Conected the CID FLIPUP with the radio so it flips on key contact

    flip -> radio
    pin 1 : terminal 30 (plus) -> Radio = pin 15 (red/green - thick cable)
    pin 3 : terminal 31 (minus) -> Radio = pin 12 (brown - thick cable)
    pin 5 : K_CAN High -> Radio = pin 11 (orange/green)
    pin 6 : K_CAN Low -> Radio = pin 9 (green)

    Motorized FLIPUP (CID)

        I had a usb charger and ripped it apart (removed the unnecessary parts) and solder the usb cable to it

          Lugi, this is the absolute best install I've seen yet. I love the fact that all factory equipment remains in place and the PC tucks nicely under the floor. The SSD HD will definitely hasten the boot time. Could you supply more details about where you got the CID? This is exactly what I was looking for, amazing job.

            very very nice job.

            Do you have a bit of crop with the 7" going into the CID?

                  CID (Flap Monitor) is from eBay(de) was around 150EUR including shipping

                  Well i did crop inside the CID but not the viewing side because i don't have any experiance with fiberglass so i have a 7" in a 6.5" frame, using a custom resolution for CF. Maybe it's time to found some fiberglass master =)

                            Just ebay it...it's just a normal 7" touchscreen lcd..

                            And btw it doesn't fit by default & i use it only as a 6.5" with custom Centrafuse resolution as mentioned before:

                            Didn't find a cheap 6.5" tft lcd..
