    1999 Corvette

    I thought I would share what I have done with my 1999 Corvette. To keep the finish looking OEM, my installer had the great idea of wrapping vinyl on the dash. I thought it came out pretty good although if I were to do it again, I would like to see a little more style around the screen and media ports like a groove or something.

    Overall, I think it came out pretty well.



    More information around the project is at http://www.vettexp.com/ and more pics at http://www.leerogers.com/images/Carp...0installation/

    For us C5 CarPC folks, it has been tough for us to find a way to get a double din into the car and still make it look OEM. I thought the vinyl wrap was novel and may help others. To get an idea of what it looked like before, an unmodified C5 dash looks something like this.



    So alot of us have to move the AC down to the bottom and then try to get the texture right.

    If you're looking at the same thing I'm looking at, it's a multi-function memory card reader.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Exactly. More information at http://www.atechflash.com/products-pro28u.html. Since this photo, I have removed the silk screen printing for a cleaner look.
