  • VanPimpinLI 90 Chevy Van Worklog

    This is part one of my install
    UPDATED
    Im using
    Mobo Biostar M7ncg400
    GPS Holux Gm-210
    Screen Xenarc 700 TSV
    Input Shuttle Xpress, MiniKey
    WIfi Hawking w/ ext ant
    Rear view cam
    OBD ALDL cable

    Thats it for right now


    So I began fabricating a flip up screen cover. fortunatley my van has one, I just needed to cut it up a bit
    grabbed the jigsaw and went edward scissorhands on it

    I will be sanding the dash down and painting it after i get the motorized portion of this working but for now here are a few pics of the lcd mount

    also the bottom is currently cut out from where i had the screen mounted before but the glare was too much down at the bottom so i decided to move it up to the top im am going to mount a shuttle xpress on the left side and have switches on the right panel all mounted ontop of some brushed aluminum


    How it Was (screen is too hard to see)



    Fitting the Metal framing to the Xenarc



    The metal framing added to the on the dash door



    Door Closed



    Turned on

    hmm, looks good. i would probably find a way to extend the door lower to protect the screen when it's closed. perhaps some kind of hinging mechanism?

      the pics are decieving the screen retracts into the dash not down like it is in the 1st pic. the 1st pic was just showing where i had it before
      that whole area where the screen used to be im going to close back up by putting some brushed aluminum over it and mounting the shuttle xpress there

            Heres what it should look like when im done roughly
            it still needs a few switches and controls to the right of the shuttle and i might take the shuttle apart as well

              I always thought the Chevy / GMC vans has a nice dash to work with! Glad to see someone is making it work!

                alright YES so i was "securing" the metal bracket and the screw went sideways and ripped the plastic apart now i have to find a new way to mount the bracket because the plastic is ruined on the one side. i might try epoxy but i dont know if itll work properly

                    Well unfortunatly looks like i may have to use it in another project or just forget about it seems that dispite all the room i have in the dash its just not enough to accomodate the angle i need to get it to work right im scrapping the flip up idea for now and going with the bondo approach. i ay attempt this again once im fully installed

                    Update right now im fighting with my biostar and amd 2400 there not playing together i rmas both back and hope this willsolve the problem by then i should have a better idea whats what. i think its probably just an adjustment of the fsb and multiplier but my vga signal on the board cut out b4 i could go and try to change it. this time i will go straight to expert mode and change it.

                    anyone know what the multiplier etc would be running anAMD 2400+ 35w mobile athlon?

                      [lostreception] Why don't you see if you can find another console piece at the junkyard? It might be cheaper.

                        cheaper in terms of what the piece im going to start the fabrication on now is a junkyard piece so ive ripped it apart quite alot just dont really care what happens to it. so far so good ive never used bondo b4 so it should be interesting. i need to find some time to take care of it.

                            ok so far so good looks like ive got this biostar problem under control.
                            i got the svideo output cable and seems it was outputting to that video source instead of vga

                            be sure to see this post as well as that whole thread even. [especially if you have a biostar]

                              wow 2 months and im still uninstalled someone yell @ me

                              UPDATE sorta:

                              hopefully ill be able to find some time to continue snaking wires and running the rest of the wires to the front. i since got a rearview cam off ebay from the seller cooleyes it seems to work well for my needs bench testing it but i still need to see how it will go installed in the van.
                              I also think im going to install the battery isolator but im totaly sure i need it
                              without my amp hooked up everything works great i just think that when the amp draws current i may run low on the line side. i figure better safe than sorry but im sure if im going overkill i already have 2 batteries ?
