so I ordered a new dash, also ordered a new style bezel, looks so much nicer in the truck already
everything fits togeather real nice, I was even able to make the radio sit upright facing forward,& completely beind the clock, I likew the little infiniti clock & wanted to keep it, so now I can have a slot load right above the clock for the factory changer, the stock upper cd slot will now be a pc drive dvdr
last shot is blurry, but shows how it loads
Overhead climate controls, I love it! Why didnt I think of that. Looking forward to see the fabrication on this one! Subscribed.
Continued Worklog... Upgrades in progress:
*15.4" WXGA LED backlight touchscreen upgrade
*Custom fiberglass dash bezel
this install is based on a fujitsu st5021 tablet, it uses a 10.4" reflective screen, not transflective, but fully reflective. in the bright sun a transflective still relies on the backlight but a reflective screen you could turn the backlight off in the middle of the brightest sun & see it perfectly, the trade off is at night it's not quite as vivid as a conventional lcd, not a bad trade off to me. the whole moterboard will fit in the dash behind the screen
i decided I wanted to make this truck extra nice, the rest of the body had no damage at all, so I put new sheetmetal instead of fixing anything in the front, 2 new fenders & a new aluminum hood so it would be perfect & not a bondo bucket.
I wasn't too crazy about the silver, I mean it looks good & all, but the silver is just so common & average for these trucks, every other one I see is silver, so I decided to paint it a custom pearl black, had to dissasemble the whole truck to do this, but the end results are worth it.
