  • My Corvette Install

    heres a little info

    8 inch in dash touch screen with molded console faceplate

    runs a full in car computer with 40gig MP3 external drive, Celluar internet and wireless broadband...GPS, DVD and more...have full stereo surround sound planned

    Im writing some custom software to control it and the themes

    has a quick switch button to go from Daytime to Nighttime screen...

    Got the molded bezel installed and fitted. took a good bit of remolding/cutting to get it in. I moved the AC Controls down to the old ashtray area. Ground it all down and rebuilt the area so it would fit like it suppose to

    all i have left now is the switches for turning the PC on.

    now on to the speaker install which should be as much or more work than bezel was :leaving

                          I have a 2002 Trans Am, and I was planning on doing almost the exact same thing, although I was just going to ditch the heater controls all together and program the computer to do it. That's a very nice install. Just from looking at that, I'm glad I was on the right track. Nice job.

                              Whatever you do, don't use computer speakers! They sound like ***** compared to even stock car speakers.

                              Nice install, that is.
