  • Mazda3 carpc install

    I just finished installing my carpc last week-end and thought it would be great to share my install. I can't go further without giving nearly about 99% of the idea to that guy: http://www.deletedtheory.com/carpc/.

    It's my first post on the forums, but I've been around for 6 months now. It is also my first carpc installation.

    What'in there?

              Brushmetal skin with red highlights...and you need a Mazda logo for the center of the RR screen! Also, dont you love the UFO in your glove box?

              Good job with the HU LCD mounting, thats something I've been too lazy to do.

                Hu

                Extending the cables from the HU lcd display was not too much of a problem, but I think I done it wrong for at least one wire. Sometimes, I see crap on the display and then it comes back ok. I'll have to recheck every cables when I have some spare time.

                      I agree... great car, nice install so far but it doesn't look like you're done... MOLD IT!

                      It's cool what you did with the radio display. if you ever want to lose the h/u you can purchase lcd or vfd displays and put it in the place of the radio display. some front ends, like centrafuse will output to these displays.

                        Nice job.

                        Looks a lot like my old install (relocating HU to glove box, carputer in the trunk floorboard)

                        What year you have? I got a 04. I can tell from the HU display that you either have a 05 or 06.

                        If you ever switch to frodo, i got a skin that matches the inside. You can see a pic of it in the link in my sig.

                          Keen70: it's Roadrunner with the BMV skin. I plan trying to make my own skin soon. As my girlfriend is good in art & design and she uses the car more than a do, that way she feel part of it

                          Viller: I would be honnered! I try to take better pics in the next days, because I was in a hurry to get it done for last week-end road trip.

                          NappyJim: It is a 2005, and thanks for the skin.
