    Wow, nice clean install. It almost seems a shame to toss that factory HU. It looks kinda cool.

    What are you going to cover the amp with?

    Looking good so far. Keep up the good work.

        Hot!

        I gotta say... that looks so freaking factory! The Mediacar skin looks awesome there! And the cover provides some peace of mind! Nice job!

            Gonna put a hinged cover over the amp with a plexiglass window. Just trying to find a way to cut the plexiglass and make it look good.

            BTW - I've been running with the carputer in the sub box for a few weeks now and no problems so far.

              I was thinking of doing the same thing with my sub box and the computer when I stared the project. I was afraid of the whole magnet-hard drive interaction. Love the dash install though. Very nice.

                    Very nice!! Finally a tC installation

                    I'm also an owner of a Scion tC and am in the process of putting together my carputer.

                    Did you have to take the lilliput out of its casing to fit it in the double din slot? I just ordered my screen and hope I don't have to take apart the monitor to make it fit.

                      if you were able to afford those expensive *** 18" wheels, why didn't you just get the 10" sub upgrade, throw that nice MTX in it with some minor mods which will bump, trust me....then hide the computer and amp like under the seat in a nice enclosure so the underseat lights will show off the coolness?

                      Thats the color my girl's gonna get. I almost bought a Silver Streak Mica TC with the body kit, TRD exhaust, AEM Cold Air Intake, and those 18" wheels...but the 18" wheels are INSANLY priced. And I was like 2k over what they able to finance me for unless I somehow got a pay increase. I still might get one...since It is a kick *** car, especialy the 5spd, with TRD exhaust and short throw shifter....The Pioneer in dash cd changer is ok....I like that it changes colors even tho I'll keep it blue, but I just dont really like buttons for volume, I'd rather have a volume knob....which is why I would definatly do a touch screen with a rotary volume knob custom installed into the dash somewheres.

                      Gorgeous car man. tC's are only becomming popular here by kill! Meaning everyone hates them, until they get thier *** handed to one thats fully stock lmao...quick little car's.

                            Thanks for the compliment!

                            Sorry for the bad news, but not only do you have to remove the lilliput from its casing, you also have to cut off the button portion of the front bezel. Then you just need to epoxy the frame into the door cubby (which does remove from the a/c controller panel). I had to make a custom bracket to fasten the lilliput boards to in the cubby.
