Hyundai Sonata 05 and a newbies Hail
Earlier this year got myself a new car, 05 Sonata GLS V6, with just 23k miles on it. Plan to keep it for a while... so slowly been making plans to stick a PC in it.
That's when I found you guys. :)
Now that it's looking really close to happening (and the weather's getting nice enough to be outside, not including wednesday's snow storm) I decided to say hello!
My current plan is to remove the factor 2 DIN radio/CD/tape deck and put in a DWW-6500. To control it, I'm looking at a miniITX build (mini-box/voompc maybe).
Tried playing around with my dash yesterday, brought up a few questions. Last time I upgraded a headunit, I believe the car was a 76? I remember that being very straight forward. But on this fancy car - and woodtrim stock... I couldn't get anything off to even think about taking out the radio.
I've since found out there's screws behind the ashtray - have yet to remove the ashtray and check on that... hopefully happens this weekend. But anyone have experience with that stock woodtrim? Is it an adhesive I need to get off? Or should it come off with one of the dash pieces?
I'll try to get pictures up tomorrow.
And once I get that off, and the factory unit out -- does the 6500 need a brace/bracket to sit in? How will that work...
Can't wait to get to some fun electrical and hardware work, but this mechanical stuff :confused: :(
