  • Honda CR-V Install "1812 Overture" Lotsa pics 56k slow

    So I sold my old Tiburon because I could not fit a baby seat in back. My wife also pointed out I would not be driving 140 mph anymore anyway.
    Soooooo she convinced me in to buying an SUV. Here I go again......
    I have 100% of the parts. The bezel ,with some professional help after I screwed it up, has been fabbed. The center console has been fabbed, by me. Now all that's left to do is install all of this in the SUV. Pics will be up tonight or tomorrow, depending on if my 11 mth old little helper is up to helping dad. I am dedicating this install to my son, new life.

          Solo gave me the honor of working on his screen. Took about a week and finished it up =). The white screen in the ending pictures is due to a ribbon that needs replacing

          Came out great!

            I did modify the M350 case so that I could use the m4 ATX power supply with it. I also wanted to make the cables nice and neat.

              Welcome to the world of SUVs. I too was a sport car person, and I dreaded giving my 2 cars up. My dogs loved my old Porsche 944 when they were little pups, but once they hit 5 months, they already started to have fitting issues. When they were small both could fit in the front passenger seat. Then only one could and the other had to sit in those midget seats in the back. The other car, which I gave to my parents, forget it, they would cry and throw up all over that car, even though it had lots of room with the sets folded down in the back. I then got a Grand Cherokee, which imploded (yes imploded). That was actually the most happy day of my life because I didn't like the SUV, my heart was set on the Durango, which i have been happy with. I guess the whole point I am trying to make is that just because you drive an SUV, doesn't mean you have to sacrifice what you liked about your sports car. I have already started to make engine mods, and have even more planned in the future. Body styling is also on the table. Go onto CarDomain.com and check out what others have done to the CR-V, u'll be surprised.

              Anyways, happy reinstall of your car pc.

                Thanks for the good words HiJackZX1. I owned a 2 door RAV4 at one point. Yet I think you're right I went to cardomain,cim and saw some great ideas. I may work on those after this.
                HEY DID YOU ALL SEE THE GREAT WORK NEXSON DID ,he saved my install.

                  I love Nexson's work. He actually did my bezel too. Im still waiting for him to respond to my lengthy email on future projects. SoloconDeus, where do you live? Are you in FL also? I happen to live one city away from Nexson, if I could remember how to get there I would harrass him, lol, but all I remember is alot of trees.

                          What a coincidence!

                          I'm also in the process of installing a car pc on my 03 CR-V!

                          I'll post my project in a few days.

                          Very nice install!

                            Thanks guys. I should start the install on Tuesday barring anything unforeseen.
                            So I did some calculations, then got lazy went to HERE (BTW awesome car audio site) and let the calculator give me the information I needed for my wire size.
                            I Have the 4 awg,and the 10 awg I nee. I just need to pick up some 8 awg and 6.
                            Then I wll have the proper wire for my computer, amps and Boston speakers.
                            My finished bezel should be here by Monday, then the party begins.

                              The kid got tubes put in his ears today, poor little guy. Then I got the monitor and it needs a new ribbon cable, so for this week I have to put this install on hold. I also had to take the car to the shop and get a new strut put in.
