  • Celica install, phase 1 done

    It occurred to me today that I have been done with my "phase 1" for about 3 months now and I forgot to post it. Anywhere, here it is......


    Did the fiberglass myself, but got body shop to paint and shine. CD burner and 4-port USB in dash. Yes, that is a Logitech Marble cut-up and molded where the ashtray used to be.

    ThinkOutside Bluetooth keyboard in visor.







    Glovebox is now a case. Plexiglass heat-bent as cover. Jacks (KB, PS2, ether, audio in) dongled/extended to right glovebox side. Ignition-shutdown toggle, power and reset buttons on left glovebox side.

    A little blue cold-cathod


    What do you think?

    Next: Reverse camera, ODB2

              That car does not have space under the seats... you would be lucky to fit a small billfold under one of them... no room for PC hardware.

                Great job, I'm doing an install on my 05 Celica. My main system will be trunk mounted instead of in the glove compartment. I also want to remove the stupid sunglasses hold and put my screen there. Mine is 8 inches so I'll have to do more cutting and fiberglass work to get it to fit right. Wow, 4 USBs in the front, are you using a hub for that? And if so, is it a powered hub?

                Thanks!

                      yeah man i owned a GTS and traded it in like a year ago. mine was the silver and was the intro year(2000). car was alot of fun. but no there was really no room under the seats at all to do anything under them. the only other place would be the trunk. but in that car theres an armrest to store stuff and the glovebox was of a decent size. looks good to me man. i like how you turned the sunglass compartment into where the screen goes. looks good.

                      The best part about the car was when it was hot out, I could put a mountain dew bottle propped up at the inner drivers side vent and cool it down with the aircon. lol. ahhh memories.

                        iNqUiSiTiVe - I took the "guts" (the boards, button contacts) out of the Logitech Marble and fashioned them to a piece of Modeling plywood (very thin plywood) and hardened the wood with resin. Keyboard is a ThinkOutside Stowaway Bluetooth

                        Ineffigy - Yes, its a hub. No, not powered... Just a "laptop" type USB hub I found at Walmart, because it fit in the space.

                        NotDave - The cord on the antenna is attached. 5dbi Whip. You could by a pigtail http://sharperconcepts.zoovy.com/cat...radiopigtails/, but the antenna's can be gotten cheap. Mine was 7.95. One thing important with Wifi is orientation. If you tuck a rubber-duck antenna in your headliner for example, I doubt it would do well. Anyway, my range extended by like 10 times with the 5dbi external. I can keep connection to my home wifi for as mush as two blocks.

                        agmsd & pepsibobby - Glovebox was the only option. I wanted it the armrest, but I couldn't make it all fit. Seats run too low. Trunk has amps and bass... and still needs to be a trunk. Glovebox worked well, because I didn't have to convert IDE to USB. It's not just parts in the glovebox, the glove box IS the PC with a Plexiglass window. When I need to take the PC out (for new additions or something) I just unscrew the glovebox and take the whole thing. Anyway, I like it....

                          Do you ever have people riding around in your car open up the glovebox and almost have a heart attack! That thing would scare me. But, as I look at it more, you can see that it is pretty organized considering the space. At first glance though, it looks crazy! I still stand with my previous opinion, "good job!"

                            The dash looks great. Real OEM look. Do you have any build-up photos?

                              ah...well put. which connector fits the card?

                              edit: i searched and figured out that my linksys wmp54g uses a RP-SMA connector according to this webpage http://www.radiolabs.com/products/ca...th=5#connector
