(another) 2004 Nissan Maxima install
Here's my finished results. Worklog here (http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/work...e-install.html)
Anyway, some pictures of the outside of the car, all stock.
Shot of the stock inside:
Post install shots.
And here's a shot after upgrading the LCD with 3M ESR and prism films.
I didn't want to lose the *****bucket at the bottom of the console and I didn't really think moving the stock screen to the bucket area looked 'stock', so this was the only other option and I think it turned out good (besides...who the hell has tapes anymore anyway???!!!) The screen is in a good location for easy reach access, downside being that you have to look slightly down to view a gps map if needed. The other downside is that on a bright sunny day, the glare from the touchscreen is horrendous in the morning hours. Daytime visibility is good now with the 3M films installed, but I'll be ordering some ARMR-200 for the glare issue.
The knob to the left of the screen is to control the volume of a pair of amplified Altec Lansing speakers which are back behind the console (tight fit even without the bulky housings they were in!). This is so that I can still get directions over the GPS while listening to the factory radio/CD.
