Keep up the good work!
Thanks Covering it with the same material (grey in colour) that bmw uses to cover the boot. Its being covered, should have it by tomorrow.
Started the installation of the alpine amps, crossovers, digitial processor and controller. The controller will be fitted in the ashtray compartment, lots of fabrication is needed and the 12v cig lighter would have to be relocated. Pics coming soon
The Alpine components are still being installed. We Fitted the capacitor today and the fuse box. The capacitor is fitted on the right hand side of the boot, while the fuse box is right on top of the battery cover. The fuse box is drilled on top and the we drilled holes for the cables, looks neat. All the speaker cables are tucked in. The box we desgined is a bit to tight for the cableing but we are trying to re route some cables. The Crossovers are mounted on MDF Blocks and are two close to the amps so the RCA won't fit. Tomorrow we'll adjust the MDF blocks, hopefully by the end of the day the boot install would be finished.
The Sumicom SP625 PC arrived today, finally, placed an order on the 22nd of May and paid by credit card. Apparently international orders can only be processed via wire transfers. So finally after 4 weeks its here.
Just recieved the CarNetix P1290 DC-DC regulator and the Creative Audigy2 NX sound card.
Still thinking which front end to use!!!
I haven't bought an FM adaptor (dlink most probably).
Dunno if I should run centrafuse or road runner or frodoplayer. It took me 2 weeks to decide on a PC, i hope it doesn't take me 2 weeks to decide on a front end.
Purrrrrfect installation components, very professional integration. This seems to kick my E46 project..hehe.Hope you are totally confident with my E46 Bezel for the Xenarc. As the pictures show, you are (or have a professional) mechanic. Remember that you spare out the original radio-holder enough that the xenarc cable fits sidely in the frame. Use enough hot-glue, also also trough the edge-holes of the second platine. Then it should work without silicone as adhesive contact for the second platine. for the other side the original plastic foil of the first platine has good contact to hot glue.
All the best for your installation. Contact me if you are ready

Thanks Janis. The installation of the Alpine components is complete, its just being tuned. It tooks us a lot of time to perfect the installation, we tried to make it as OEM as possibile, using the least amount of material for fabrication. The amps and crossovers are mounted on the spare wheel compartment cover and we fabricated another cover to go on top and wrapped in the same material (grey carpet). Most of the ideas are mine. The installation is done by my friend who's the Alpine dealer for Oman, i have been helping out and learning alot. I am still working on the carputer and once its ready i'll start fitting the xenarc touch screen and all the other components (stage 3). Its a time consuming project. More pics to be added soon.
Finally gonna get the car out today, will definatly take some pics. I am currently playing around with centrafuse and trying to install phonecontrol. Once i find a front end that i like i'll install the carputer and screen and my gamecube. Will post the whole process on a website with details once i get a chance.
i like pics
Go on and do it, do it, Do it 'til you're satisfied,
Whatever it is, do it, Do it 'til you're satisfied.
