  • 2005 WRX STi Car PC Project

    So far just have the bezel made (needs some wet sanding and paint). Still trying to decide on the hardware for the PC and also waiting on an Alipne 9855 HU. I'll post more pics as it progresses.

            JUst did a rough cutout of the oem radio trim to fit/center the Xenarc trim. Zapped the xenarc trim into the oem trim, filled the excess gaps with strips of abs plastic then used Rage Gold lightweight boddy filler. Didnt need much filler as the cutout for the Xenarc screen was very close. Sand with various grits, down to 220 grit and finished off with body shop shooting a primer filler on it to fill the last pinholes and imperfections. Still needs some minor wetsanding before I shoot it with some SEM trim paint.

                We may start offering to make these for those interested. Just a thought at this point.

                        To help you make your decision, if it works well and it's a Xenarc (LILLIPUTS SUCK), I'm down.

                          Yea thats why we dont carry the Lilliputs. But saving a buck or two is more important to some, which is understandable. I'd prefer better form and fuction so I don't mind spending the extra $. I can get these made for those who want but custom work can be considered pricy. Also I don't want to step on any toes here so I won't post anything on pricing.

                            How much we talking??

                            the guys making the bracket for the lilli's "say" they are working towards a Xenarc, but there is no response to the emails I have sent...

                            my quick questions are will you paint to match stock, can you just skip the buttons (I'd rather remote mount the needed ones) maybe you could leave the IR?? will this be a "turn key" setup - meaning I don't want to mail you my dash and I already have a Xenarc... I figure you guys have considered this, just would like to see the info posted up here... thanks..

                              I should be getting mine in the mail today. When I get a chance, I will take some pictures and let you all know how it turned out.
