  • Another Scion TC Install

    C134 Box - Damn this had to be the hardest part of the entire installation. I eventually gave up and did not put the slimline slot dvd drive in the C134 case. I still think its impossible to fit that thing in the tiny box...later I will mount the slim line somewhere else...suggestions anyone?

    In dash action shots, running FrodoPlayer. Ive tried everything else, centrafuse media car, etc. FrodoPlayer is the fastest, most stable, and easiest to use. Good job Frodo

    Finally for those who want to run their Opus or M1-ATX's in the house without dragging in a 12V battery I made this box. I just chopped off the end of a 12V 5A power supply and attached standard Molex plugs. On the M1-ATX side is the male and in the car is female. So when I move the C134 from the car to the house I just unclip the usb,video,audio, and power molex. Then in the house I attach the molex tot he 12V ps. Im dont know if im the first to do this. Prob not.

                    you got to keep the door. i just an 06 tc and its coming in 2 weeks. what screen is that? i want to do the same, but i want a 7" screen that will fit in there and still allow for the door to stay.

                      The screen is a 7'' lilliput. However if you want to keep your door the only way to fit it in the double din door is to chop the unit apart. The HVAC controls are on a lip behind the door. Thus the only way to fit the unit in while keepin the door is to cut apart the lilly and relocate the controls.

                      I do not suggest this with a lilly because of the low quality and tolerance of the monitor. I spent hours and hours fixing the stupid ribbon cable, reordering new cables, only to have the retaining clip break, then having to rig up a toothpick retaining system...

                      Those who have taken apart lilly's can I get a witness =).

                      Finally as of yesterday the lilly is dead. Once again I had to take it out and repair the cable (i have 2 spares). This time she's dead, no new cables, no amount of wiggling and moving.

                      Im heavily debating staying with this hobby as it is getting expensive. I am overa a 1G with the GPS, C134, EPIA, memory, HD's, lilly, replacment parts, etc.

                      Now I have to spend another $400 for a PROPER Xenarc monitor. WTF #%*#&A(%*)&@#$()%&*@()#&*A%*()@#&%*()&@#%*()&%()*& @#()&*%@()#*%&()*%&#*()%&&@#*()&%)#^%R*)&#^%)@&*(# .

                      This time im ordering a Xenarc 7'' ... leaving it in the friggin case, and getting rid of the TC door.

                        sorry to hear about your lilliput horror...should have gotten a xenarc to begin with =)

                        i've had mine out of it's case for over a year now and never had any problems. install looks great though, just grab a xenarc and be done with it...

                            It's an APEX'I rev/speed meter. Displays RPM/Speed/Time/ etc.
