    Question Anybody ever try a carputer in a newer model Rav4?

    I have been searching everywhere and I cannot find anyone who has ever installed a carputer in a 2001(or later) Toyota Rav4. I own a 2001 Rav4 and I've been wanting to put a carputer in in since last year. Right now I am just doing research and figuring out pricing on the project. But hopefully this coming spring break I can start with the fabrication. I am just going to replace part of the dashboard with a custom dash for the touchscreen. Right now my car is in the shop getting repairs from a car crash that happened last week. When I get it back sometime next week I will take pictures and show you guys how I'm planning on doing this. Hopefully by this summer I will have a complete carputer.

    The procedure for installing a PC in your RAV4 is the same as it would be for any other vehicle.
    It seems to me that you want information about the fabrication work involved, which is a whole seperate process.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Look into the Show off area, there are a few Rav installs.
