    I just have no time to post between new work and the car and life just don't really have time anymore.

    That and the fact im installing a supercharger on my car doesn't help with time either :P lol

    I'm still waiting on money to buy a nice sub and amp so i can finish off the false floor but that probably wont be done by the meet who knows

    Hey there people. I've been gathering some hardware lately from a job i'm doing and wondering if anyone would be interested in buying a 24X slimline cdrom. I can take orders and bring them to the next meet if you like. They are ideal for dashboard mounting. They are not DVD compatable however. Just like the CDROMS you used to see in the laptops. If anyones interested in buying one I am selling them for $20 a piece. Let me know and I can arrange to have one for you.

    I'm still keen on the mid-jan meet. I'm planning on being there. I may actually change my computer from my miniITX pc up to a 2.4ghz P4 laptop. Now your talkin' about power! I'm also working on "obtaining" a 12 volt 15" LCD screen for the back seats.

    Here's mine so far. It's taken a while to get done, but it will look 'fully sik' when its finished. The funny speckled colour is because of the plastic putty. It will later be painted to match the other trim when the putty fully cures (1-3 months).


    Screen is the 8.4" Xenarc TSV. Stupid thing doesnt auto-switch to reverse camera , so I would suggest an 8" LCD to save yourself some fitting hassle and a lot of $$$.

    My car is a 2002 VY Series 1 - Berlina.

    PS> If you think the climate control was relocated, you're right. Otherwise the LCD is too far down the dash. Actually its a PITA to look at the LCD in the stock CD stacker location and too dangerous for driving IMO.

    Its looks wicked with a FE running. But the standard Xenarc touchoverlay is too reflective. It looks great at night, but is horrid during direct/daytime-sunlight. Ive purchased an AntiGlare version from Duayn from MotorCity USA, and hope to fit it in the next few weeks. Fingers crossed it improves the daylight viewability - if not, I might send the LCD for TF/AG upgrade. (More $$$ spent).

    Great work on the centre console it looks good

    To help combat glare tinting the windows does help alot and u can get a light anti glare type of tint on the back window aswell
