    Hey cpro, what part of SoCal are you in? I may have a few questions about some upgrades I am contemplating for my truck.

    sweet job! i cant wait till spring to start mine.

    people who dont understand the whole thing with building computers wouldnt understand what it took to make it. I guess people who are used to doing interiors for cars might understand a bit more, but not nessisarily. nicely done!

    Not yet. I still need to take pictures of the center console and the back wall of the cab. I do have some more pictures on building the case, and console. Those were the things I built when I first started this project. Then I got tired of taking pics so I stop taking pictures of the rest of the system. I will post more pics when I orginize the pics.

    Totally agree. I got a friend who works at the local shop. He does a lot of fiberglassing and custom work too. First thing he said when he saw my system was "can it fly yet?" That kind of ****ed me off. Made me wanna go buy a USB joystick and MS flight simulator just to go and laugh at him and say "yes it CAN fly"

    I removed the lower dash panel below the steering colum, radio bezel, ashtray bezel, glove box, disconnect the air circulation cable, air outlet vent position cable, heater core gate cable under the hood. I carefully feed the heater core gate cable through the firewall, and feed the other 2 cables through the dash behind the glovebox and pulled the AC control unit out. Then I reposition the AC control unit into the spot where I want it. I had to cut the radio support bracket on the dash and some plastic mounting holes for the AC control unit. The backstrap I used to hold the AC control unit is about 1/16 inch thick. It is very very strong. The whole process took me about 6 hours.

    edit: Once you mounted the AC control unit, You have to modify the face plate and also the radio/AC bezel to fit. The bezel covers part of the AC button.
