      more pics...

      Here are some more pics...The last pic is the integration of the mic into the driver side pillar...The next to last pic is the armrest where the computer is gonna be located...The black panel covers the whole armrest and there are two switches, one for the computer and the other for muting the mic...As far as the trunk is concerned, all the panels are made of fiberglass...Also there is a fiberglass tub in the spare wheel well...More updates coming soon...

        Yeah the head unit space was filled in, textured, and painted to match the rest of the dash...

          Very nice, I really like the dash bezel. Looks like stock. Beautiful!

            thanks...yeah the only issue i still have is that the head unit doesn't sit completely flush because the air vents stick out too far...If I flush mount it then the motorized screen wont be able to open completely...I guess you cant have everything...

                I did it...This was after so many trial and errors...It took about 4 months of designing and fabricating

                  what do you guys think???

                  I was planning to put the VGA touchscreens in the doors...Do you guys think thats a good place? I really dont have much of a choice but im somewhat concerned about the visability...I will probably leave the same covering or i could make it black fiberglass (same color as the car) if the space is too tight and I need to build it out...But Im leaning towards leaving it the same leather covering...

                      i say dont do it in the doors..thats more of a show off whats on the screen type of thing..vga touchscreens are something thats very useful and important to the car pc. i say mold a vga touchscreen as big as you can into ur dash and than put some 8 or 10 inch monitors in the doors

                          NIIICE! Very "pimpmode" I like the trunk install. How do you like the Xtant amps? I used to to have all xtant amps and subs, but after the 6th sub burned out... and about the 5th amp I decided their "high quality" just was not worth the price.
                          Is this where the witty comment goes?

                            The amps are very reliable...probably the best I have had (compared to PPI, JL Audio, and Alpine)...No burn outs or anything like that...
