    how about an update?

    I sold my diesel chugging f250 and got a ttq roadster. Im moving my truck pc into it, and your car is almost exactly the same. Im used to a lot more space, so im very interested in any and all the pics through your build. I have the bose system which ive read is a little different the the Symphony in that the bose has a amp that powers the rear mids and the woofer. I cant find that amp for the life of me, i dont think your system has 1 so you wouldnt know where it might be.. would ya?
    Where are you going to mount your pc? Im sorry to be so inquisitive but im used to domestic and space and havent had a chance to get a Bently Guide for it.
    That sucks your screen didnt fit. I Think stripped my 7 inch generic screen down to jam it into the hole the ashtray left and those side bars whilst still leaving the 3 buttons (gas door ect.) visible. Good positioning, i thought about wrapping the A bars solid and the screen back in leather. it would leave some room in the pocket to add some other equipment.
    A custom bezel is the way to go, maybe some more pics soon then. Thanks

    The whole dash assembly up front should be the same. I've got a TTQ Coupe so from the front seats back it's a bit different. I'm taking tons of pictures of the install. I'm installing it in place of the CD changer which is in my rear side panel.

    All TTs have either the Concert or Concert II (2002 and above) systems. The Bose system was an addon on top of that. I'm not sure where your amp is, in mine its supposedly in the right hand side rear side panel. I'm not going to touch it though.

    I'm using a Blitzsafe adaptor that I bought at Enfig Car Stereo (enfig.com - I highly recommend them). It plugs into the CD changer port that runs up to the stereo as I want to keep the stock audio system.

    My screen actually ended up fitting where I wanted. It's not mounted but I had to remove the knee bolsters (4 torx screws on each side). I'm going to remove the ash tray and mount in between where it was and the center tunnel. I'll make it fit in a bit more with a bit of color match vinyl/leather.

    I'd like to do a custom bezel but I don't really know where I'd get that done - I don't have the time to do it myself - plus it'd probably turn out like crap.

    I just picked up a Mac Mini today - 1.66GHz Core Duo, 80GB HD, 2GB Ram, Applecare for around another year and a half - $400.00. Great price! I'm going to work on a bracket for the CD changer bracket and start on the actual install. Pictures to follow soon

    The LCD I purchased (Lilliput EBY701) won't fit in the location I wanted. This time I'm certain.

    I'm going to try to get a custom bezel done. I might actually try and house the display in the upper ash tray if I can get a slim enough bezel - that way it will swing up and out of sight when I don't want/need to see it. I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull that off yet though.

    As far as the installation goes, I got the power wiring done and the Carnetix all hooked up. Still waiting on my modified CD changer bracket to hold the Mini and Carnetix.

    I set up a site with all the pictures I"ve taken so far here - http://www.brandonauch.com
