  • Mercedes-Benz SL600, work in progress...

    Since I haven't seen a SL with carputer yet, here it is, not quite finished, but getting there...


    First of all, the car, MB SL600, V12, 6l, 394hp.


    This was pretty much what I had to work with, since someone stole the stereo and broke the console, a new console cost about $1000.


    Should come out something like this.


    A lot of cutting and epoxi later.


    Tryout after some glassfiber and filler.


    Sprayfiller and added Powermate.


    Testrun.


    Painted the first time.


    Need some cooling for the voltage regulators and monitor.


    Everything should fit in there...


    Getting there...

    After the initial tests I decided I was not happy with the console and the frame for the screen, so I cut it apart again, will paint it tonight.

    All the pictures can be seen here, will add more as they come.

      Looks beautiful, but why not white out your license plate?

                  i agree, that is a nice install, must be kind of annoying trying to reach around the shifter to see the whole screen when parked, no?

                      Well, one o´clock in the night in Sweden, I am quite drunk, BUT, I managed to get a layer of clear coat on the console before blackening out, will hopefully put it in the car tomorrow if not to badly hung over...

                          Some pictures from this weekends work.



                          Everything working pretty good, not done the final install of the PC yet. Also, radio reception is crappy, using the D-link, havenät looked into that much yet.

                          All the pictures at:

                            FCS3, yeah, kinda pain in the @$$ reachin around it, but if I am driving the shifter is placed in D, no problem at all, just when standing still, usually put the shifter in N and there is no problem.
                            In my case estetics had to go before function, and I wanted to fit the largest screen possible without loosing any essential functions from the car.
