  • 2006 Honda Civic Breaking Ground (What Warranty?)

    Well, I just got my new car this week, it's time to break it in with some mods Here is the car, it's a 2006 Honda Civic LX:

    Also you'll see what my car looks like now, and the photoshop concept of what it might look like. I will keep this thread updated as I go.

    Now for some carputer pics

    Here are some pictures of the computer I put together to mount under the poodle shelf in the trunk.

    It is a PIII 866 MHz, w/ 384 MB RAM, 80 GB, 250watt power supply. Haven't decided front end yet. I basically just took an old case and cut it up into this thing. It is 8.5" x 4.5" x 13". Big, but it will work

    Now all it will take is some time and effort to get it all done. Any suggestions on layout?

      Nice work, I had to do a sidebyside comparison just to know what you cut from your dash and where you filled it in haha. Im thinking of doing the same to a 99 civic dash any suggestions?

      By the way is that a AMD heatsink on your processor?? (looks abit like one)

        if your half as good at fabricating that dash, as you are with photoshop this should be really nice

        looks like a bit of a challenge, but if you don't cut the bottom of the dash & have the bezel overlay the lower you should be fine..... still looks like it'll need some chopping though.... good luck with it.....

            new bezel

            Thanx guys, it will be a challenge no doubt, it's all mapped out in my mind. We'll see, I did consider getting a NAV bezel, but I want to keep the factory stereo. I like the way it looks and operates. Not much power, but that can always be fixed with some amp action. I'm fiberglassing a 10" sub box right now for the corner of the trunk. I'll post some pics when that moves forward a little.

              I've had my Civic long enough now that I don't cringe too much when I think about cutting the dash to install a screen. (It's my first new car) I'm looking foward to see what you get done, the concept looks awesome.
              Any plans to hook into the CAN?

                Trunk mounting help

                I just found some diagrams you might find helpful. PM me and I'll email it too you. I have it in a PDF. We have the same car down to the color so I'll be watching how yours goes.

                        Use NAV Dash

                        Why not just buy the NAV Dashboard and put a touchscreen behind it?

                          Thank you for the suggestion. I've thought about getting a nav bezel as an easier route. But, I do like the factory HU. Besides, what fun would that be? I will be starting on fabricatioin this week. The computer is installed and running beautifully. And the car isn't clean anymore after being torn apart.

                            I cut into my bezel last night, here it is. What a crazy radio I swear there were 50 screws in that thing. I think this is going to work!!!
