        Wow. I love the contrast of the screen/bezel with the buttons. That is a really quality install. My hat is off to you.

          nice install,
          are those led's that you put in where your feet go(by the pedals)
          I just got some green led's to put in my car but it didnt have the effect that i was looking for, what type of leds did you get?

            Wow. That bezel looks beautiful. How did you paint it/what kind of paint did you use?

            Also...I was thinking about getting some of those leds...how do they look at night?

                  Well had the Opus catch fire the other day so had to return it and also the mainboard that got damaged, got it all back and have redone it a bit as follows:

                  New Dash:

                  Starter Button:

                  Installed reverse camera:

                  Got destinator embedded into centrafuse:


                  And bought a centre console to mount all the switches etc instead of in the glovebox with the headunit. Also need to remount the remote for the headunit as the centreconsole replaced it!


                  The boot is also going to change soon enough to integrate the pc better

                  So I am getting there!

                    A Lot

                    how much slack is there in the hazard switch wiring does it need extending to fit were you have put it ?

                    would it make it to the top left hand corner were the clock normaly is

                      There is JUST enough slack to get it to where it is at the moment! I had to give the loom a big tug and got about 3 inches more and just made the difference. There should easily be enough to get to the clock as the loom is the same until it split just before the clock for the hazard sw.

                            Starter Button Here

                            I love it! When the ignition is turned on (second click on key) the button illuminates, then once you have started the car it goes out and if you then press it by mistake nothing happens!!
