    main project details are here on my site.

    starting point, my tool tray.

    mobo and HD base unit.

    in situ although now the HD is in an ICY Dock and sits vertically so i can remove the
    HD.

    Opus tucked away.

    stage 1 of the customdash fabrication.

    end result..

    fitted in the car.

        That looks cool! You guys with your bezels...I wish I my car had an existing bezel to work with... Guess that's what I get for trying to mod a car that is too old! Seriously though, nice job. I'd like to see the trunk area when it's done. It would've been slick to get the IS nav pod with the motorized function to fab it into. I'm sure that would've been pretty tough to do and very expensive.

        Nice job.

              Great looking setup. The bezel looks awesome! It looks very stock - how did you get the trapezoid shaped bezel cut correctly? I have an ES300 and I'm having trouble crafting the trapezoid-shaped bezel to look nice. Any tips or pointers would be appreciated.

              Also, that looks like 3 DIN slots right there - the IS really has that much room in the dash???

                Yeah, I figured that could get very complicated, quickly! Your bezel came out great.

                    That looks REAL nice... whats the trunk look like? Is it complete? If so, post up some pics... I'm sure it looks as nice as the dash though, right? TTYL!

                          What spare tire? That weighs like 70lb! Us Lexus folk will rather call the towtruck than carry that extra weight

                            thats what my nitrous is for ,,to make up for the weight of my spare, which incidently sits underneath the tool tray pictured.. effectively the mobo sits inside the alloy (wheel is upsidedown dont forget)

                            @ hd54321 - have a look at my webpage link, that will show you how i got the shape, basically after i glued the front of the screen in place and filled it with liquid plastic i tried to follw the angle of the screen bezel, which really just means sanding at say a <45deg angle from the front flat surface.
                            As for 3 DIN slotsyup there was that much room, dont forget that when the stock double din headunit is in place there is also a panel that has the heated seat and TRC buttons mounted.

                            The boot install at the mo is not much to look at,, currently the HD Rack is sticking out of a hole of a solid lid.. ive yet to fabricate something nice for it.

                            incidently @ 0l33l & hd54321.. what 'media' front end do you guys run.. do you have a lexus 'theme' ive been trying to find some stuff here, but links ae dead..
