  • 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP Sedan

    Well I'm finally at a point I'm happy to show. The trunk is 99.9% done. I ran out of carpet for the speaker box and still need to attach plexi to computer case. I'm waiting to do that until after I receive the new round IDE cable.

    Here are a few teaser pics because of size restrictions. Full size pics(and more of them) are on cardomain link in sig. Enjoy

    I am no longer hosting pictures on that server. If you would like to see them, they are still listed on my cardomain page.

          It's an 8.4" Lilliput, I got it from cartft. It will fit with minor dremelling to the dash piece. The difficult part is the bevelling on it. The dash is curved. It's an ABS type plastic that you can't get bondo or fiberglass to properly cure and bond to it. I'm planning on sending it to someone when the funds/time are available.

            Leddy the whole setup looks awsome. That 8.4" screen fits in there perfect, can't wait to see it mounted. Good Work!!!

                    Finished painting dash, waiting for it to dry.

                        Well yet another update.. I'm trying to get the screen mounted this weekend, waiting for the paint to dry on an accessory piece and get some cables. Pertinent parts of the background have been blocked out as to receive a G rating

                          Amazing work, It looks like it came from the factory.. What materials did you use exactly? Is it all bondo? Any closer up shots of how you finished off the HVAC and radio area? (if its done) I got a 7" lilliput in the GTP which I just made a bracket for and mounted it in front of the vents.. I like it there cuz its nice and high up, but it looks crappy and blocks my vents.. I have an 8.4" screen in my Camaro but I'm considering replacing it because it doesnt turn on sometimes and the touch is off for some reason and I can't figure out why the calibration won't work. Any problems with your screen? I may consider that one..

                            Yet another update...

                            Added pictures of dash installed and Zippy EL-610 mounted in sun visor. Tried to keep oem look as much as possible on it but the fabric wasn't long enough in some spots. so up toward the top/center it's kinda bleh. You can also see the cable running underneath the carpet, should ran it in the gap... hindsight 20/20 syndrome!

                            Slayer: thanks
                            That picture is revision #8974890734897387904384. It's REALLY hard to work with our dash because of the type of plastic it is. I had no luck with fiberglass kept peeling. I descided to try bondo and it seems to do the job but I know it's not "permanent" and can start cracking. I was going to send it to another member here to do it with plastic molding but I was so close and I just wanted to finish. If this doesn't work out I buy another dash and screen and send it to him

                            I went this route because I don't like the screen away from the dash... looks bleh to me. At this point the console piece is not done. I still have to fully mount the HVAC and make a new overlay for it and the shifter. Probably be a short while I think I need a break I'll update this thread as I progress.

                            I LOVE my lilliput. I haven't had it long but it's a fantastic screen big thumbs up all around. I purchased it from cartft.com because we get an mp3car discount. They've been great!
