    AFKfest 2009 - MaxBob Car Computer Install



    Rob Wray from mp3Car talks with MaxBob about his car installation. He has fabricated his own semi-circular dash extension to re-locate the face plate of his radio. He has actually left the radio installed, and just moved the face plate that way he can put the 7 inch touch screen in place while not losing his FM radio.

    I love how he left the EBY701 alone. Its looks more like a headunit now, which looks way more OEM to me. The headunit idea was cool too.

    Hey everyone. Thanks for the kind words. I will remain humble, though.

    trinybwoy: I didn't forget. I appreciated your compliments. Can't wait to see yours at the next AFKfest.

    sharpmusic: Thanks!!! I worked my way up to a 1000 grit wet sand. The trick is to take your time, which can be really hard to do. I used 3 coats of black exterior trim paint. I personally like NAPA auto parts brand, but there are probably better ones out there

    HiJack: Did it look better in the vid.? I recall you not being real crazy about the pictures i put up. But, you basically didn't like the same things i didn't like about it. Haha


    Anyway, thanks again everybody.

    HAHAHAHAHA, right now I am humble, but I know once my install is done, my genetically inherited ego will kick in once done, lol.

    Yea it does look different in the video, lmfao. I guess its like a drag queen, in certain light you swear their a girl until you get better lighting, then your like what the f*#k.

    PS: I remember now, all I hated was how high the round part was. Other then that I luv the rest.

    My install says it resents your drag queen analogy.
