    Few More Pics

    Here are a few more pics, the power button and led's are hidden behind ash tray door along with a serial connection, and a usb as soon as I find where I put the cable. Also a shot of the remote mount faceplate, enjoy. Oh, the touchscreen is still in the process of being molded in. I am using the Oatley ABS Cement, works great, read about it in another thread.

        ??? Svt ???

        Nothing yet, I am kinda on a mission to make a JR. Lightning, I am pretty close with the looks, just need to add a body kit. And the engine will be getting it,s "special treatment" as soon as the warranty runs out.

          And The Finished Product

          Well after many hours of cementing, bondo and painting in the bathroom converted shop (I hate living in an apartment). It is finaly done. Well done for the most part, as most of us know this is a project that will never be finished. Here are some photos of the t/s installed and running, I'll try and take some better shots after dark.
          I threw in one of the boot screen and one of it running, although it is kind a hard to see. Let me know what you think. And if I could get an admin type to move this to the finished projects, I would appriciate it, didn't wanna upload all the pics again. Thanks.

            how hard was it to get your cd player put in down there? i have a 2000 ranger and i was wondering if i could do something like that, or somehow get an in-dash motorized lcd and my cd player installed in the dash with the lcd on top... any info on that?

                Nice looking install. Post a pic(s) of what you have done to your truck. Also, what "special treatment" is gonna happen for the engine?

                  K, here comes the flame thrower,

                  From his description of the truck so far, he will get Colored Ignition wires, Colored Pulleys, , a fart can exhaust. I'm also guessing some Neon to spruce up the engine bay, and the bottom of the car.

                  Seriously though, what kinda power mods you doin, or is it just gonna be a "look alike"

                    Are you going to go with a blower to keep with the Mini-Lightning theme? A nice little turbo would be cool!

                        SVT Ranger ... can be done ..
                        put in the V8 from an explorer or mercury mountaneer( fits nice, same frame ).
                        stroke the hell out of it
                        put in all top end Cobra stuff ..


                        BTW, I used to have one of the first Rangers that could go underwater ( well 3/4 up the windshield )

                        good luck on the install

                          hey man. nice effort. I really like your setup.

                          i have a question about the remote mounting the faceplate. I have almost the same model you have... CDA-9807 and want to remote mount the faceplate too. I ordered the connectors from Alpine directly, and fixed up a cable using CAT-5 netwrk cable... I probably made it to long, b/c the signal is not going through... I have to check on that. Can you please provide some info on how you fixed it up? Thanx man. Would ehlp a lot...

                            Alpine remote faceplate parts

                            Can either of you who have done the Alpine remote mount faceplate tell me what parts you needed to order to make it easier? I'd like to see if they sell a cable specifically to tie the faceplate and the hu together - short of that, maybe I can by the part that the faceplate snaps into so that I can mold it into where I'm putting my 9855 faceplate, so it could click in like it does on the hu.

                              I looked into this as well, but we are talking completely custom here. The headunit and faceplate are separated and the wires are meticulously soldered together.
