  • Just Starting Vectra C Dash

    Hi all,

    First post after lurking for a few weeks,
    I am just starting on my Vectra C dash. Going to be putting in a LinITX touchscreen.
    Here is a picture of the replacement facia panel that I will be modding
    (finger crossed the picture works)

    I will post some more pictures when I have completed some more

    Regards,
    RichPu

    Hi, welcome. Post a pic of your dash, as well as your car. That looks a liiiiiiiiittle too small for the Linitx casing as I see it...

          Hi Everyone,

          at Cris, Yeah the size is an issue, it wil just fit the screen in, need to move the buttons, was thinking of just using the remote control if needs be

          at ccsnet, Yeah I lurk over on VVOC, My main car is a saab 900 convertible, the Vectra C is the family car which my wife usually drives, however we are going on a driving holiday in europe later this year, so I thought that I would put the PC in the Vectra.

          Right then, some more pictures
          first the dash as it is currently


          Rough cuts made


          First layer of filler


          a quick coat of paint (to check colour match)


          test fit of the screen before spending loads of time sanding and sanding some more


          rough idea of how it will look with Road Runner (need to change the logo)


          Lots more sanding and painting to do.
          I will post the finished item shortly

          Regards,
          RichPu

            Richpu -

            Cant wait to see this... can you tell me is the slot 2 din or 1.5 din ? I need to know cos when I get mine I need to do it as a 2 din slot.

            U in the UK ? Come over to the DC forum ( link below ) I think there may be another meet around October.

            Last one I went to we had an Astra and a Holden ( huba huba ) turn up....
