    Lilli Indash

    So I finally got my Tahoe back. Had to buy the wife a new 300C to get it but that's a long story. Anyway, just got my indash housing, thanks Armen, and I was going to work on it today. I plan on following the directions on digitalww's site. I was wondering if anyone who had done the Lilli conversion had any tips. Things they wish they had done different after they had it in and played with it for awhile but didn't feel like opening it back up to do. That kind of stuff. I just want to make sure I get this right the first time.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Make sure the fit is confident.. i recall a thread from the past ( for it) that mentions some wires getting pinched or scraped.

    make sure the unit opens/closes smoothly before (and after) installation.. and if it binds up at all.. address the issue right away.

    sure

    Hey steve, first off good luck on your project. Secondly I'm in the final stages of finishing off my in-dash lcd / radio bezel. (It was my first time and boy did I learn a lot)


    I rushed because I was excited to see the finished product, it really does look awesome but if I had taken more time and had been more picky about fixing some of the divets and low spots from the fiberglass it would have come out EVEN better !!! (about 25 hours on the whole project)

    I wish I had attached the screen to the bezel somehow before I fiberglassed. Either by tape or by screwing it in place (it would have come out perfectly in the place I originally had planned) I actually got really lucky because while fiberglassing I rested the bezel on a small can and it dried nearly in the same place I originally wanted it.

    I wish I had taken the buttons out of my LCD case before I fiberglassed. Even though I tried like hell to not get fiberglass on them, i've never used fiberglass and its very awkward the first time you touch it. I also would have taped over the button holes and if I got fiberglass over the tape immediatly would have removed the wet fiberglass and added new tape over the holes.

    I wish I never did this indoors, fiberglass smells like ***.

    I wished I wore safty glasses 100% during the whole project because I did get the particles I was sanding in my eyes, I wore glasses when I was cutting but not sanding. (I sometimes didnt wear them when I was cutting who cares about safty anyways right?)

    Ok, well I tried thinking of every bump in the road I ran into.. I havent actually painted my bezel yet because I decided to add 3 USB ports and a light ( so I could see the ports at night ) and I was waiting for them to dry last night.

    But my bezel looks great. Hope yours will too.

    Hey Steve,

    I also just bought an indash housing and it will be the first time I will do the conversion. If you have a digital camera take picture of your conversion and tell us if you had troubles during your conversion.

    I didn't begin the conversion yet, I think I will do it this week-end or next week-end. I have a digital camera so I will post some pictures if it's necessary.

    Good luck
    Sebastien

    You rule, patrol. Unfortunately the digikey site says that the item is obsolete. Oh well..
