  • My 02 EP3 Civic install

    Here's my install.

    The IR sensor used to be mounted in the vents but now hidden in the corner of the opening.
    The OEM S2000 button used to start the engine. Now it starts the computer.
    A white LED behind the start button turns on when the computer is on. I used to have an amber LED in there as well for the hard drive activity but it got too annoying so i ripped it out.

    The Screen is lilliput. No problems with it and i've opened it up a couple of times.

    This was done with bondo and some scrap pieces of plastic.

      Very clean - real nice job. About the silver, ya, would look hot if you left it that color. Buts looks great without it anyways.

                it's running off a laptop in the trunk inside the sub box so it's out of sight.

                as for glare. I was hoping that placing the screen about 1 inch inside the dash would help block out the glare but as you can see in the pics, it didn't help much. I just run a high contrast (black and white) skin so it's still readable.

                    Looks great dude. Very clean install and I like the setback on the screen.

                          Not too sure what you mean by feel in the lines but what I did was filled the gaps in this picture with bondo.

                            Hi 2.0i , cool install. Did you actually fabricate your dash? Looks really OEM.

                            I had a question .. do you think one can get a OEM dash for a civic ( i have a 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid) which would fit a 7" screen instead of the usual sat navigation system that comes with the top model?.. i mean I dash that could fit a screen just fine.

                            a link would be a lot of help.
