  • 2002 Porsche Boxster S w/Tview

    My first attempt so be nice.

    System Consists of Tview 7" Touchscreen with a Toshiba Portege Laptop running a stripped version Windows XP (A Powerful PII 300 w/ 160MB of Ram!!)
    The Front End is Road Runner
    The GPS Software I am using is Garmin's NRoute.

    The Screen is held in place with a lot of Bondo. I sanded that down and put Flat Black textured paint on it.

        not going to fill those gaps?

        where is the bondo? behind the screen?

        that set-up could look so extremely slick if it were filled in!

          Are you refering to the gaps along the top?

          If yes, how do you suggest filling in such a tight area?

            all of it - the top and the bottom and the sides - just flush it in and fill all the gaps - it's what bondo is used for most of the time....

              The bottom can't be filled because that is two seperate pieces of the car. The OEM nav system has that gap.

              Not sure what I could do with the sides.

              Here is a pic of the OEM system:

                Looks nice!

                What would look even nicer is is you'd buy a faceplate like the one from the original nav and cut/bondo your screen in. Make it more flush even.

                But it already looks nice (maybe just clean it a bit and take another pic )

                  You're a brave guy.... Not sure I would want to have a go at a Porshe Boxter.

                  It takes a lot longer than any of us ever imagine to get the finish that we are all looking for.

                  Bit more time with the filler and sander and you will have a really nice install.

                    I like that H/K reciever

                    Does it have many features? (like 3 sets of RCA outs, and an aux in)

                      part of a unit?

                      not sure I follow here?

                      the screen is part of a unit? the side pannels are part of a unit?

                      hu?

                        It is an HK traffic pro. I believe it has 3 sets of RCA outs, but I don't really know because it is plug and play as a replacement for the factory radio. I never used the plugs it came with. It does have the Aux in though.

                          another possibility (for the side gaps at least....)
                          when you dismantle the dash, which bit comes off first? the buttons along side, or the lcd bit?
                          coz you could build up the front piece to follow the contour of the side, but not be actually connected....
