    I need some critizism and possible new ideas guys...

    Hook a brotha up.
    You know the saying, "if you don't have anything nice to say..." that might be why.

    Overall, it's fine, but it's the details that kind of bother me.
    I'm ok with the pharoah's theme, but the only thing egytptian or pharoah about it is the sand color (other than the little trinkets strewn about for the car show.)

    The monitor looks wierd sticking up like that. IMO it should be down and in the area made for it. (And if I recall, it was made with only bondo, so when it cracks (not if, when) then you can do it again.)

    You have 4 different displays all right next to each other. Integrate and consolidate. The one that's off to the angle seems out of place too.

    The sand texture was done nicely, but it seems that only random pieces were painted. At least it looks better than the carpet from the first version. For example, the piece under the monitor and to the right. Doesn't look like it's supposed to be there.

    Is that a screen behind the armrest, in front of the sub? If so, why?

    Is there an amp on the roof? you couldn't find a better place for that?

    Clean up the wiring on the show monitor. Please.


    I'd hate to sound like I'm only being negative, but you wanted criticism. So, I gave it. There are some things you did nicely, but if it were my truck, the things I listed would bother me everyday until I fixed it.

    Ok,

    Here we go.
    I wanted criticism, you were right.

    You are the only one that I have talked to that did not like the setup.
    The Amps are on the Roof, because its Original, how many vehicles have you seen with amps on the roof?
    That are color matched to the rest of the truck?
    The little screen is positioned sideways so the driver can see it better, its a backup camera monitor. Not to watch movies!

    It has all been made with Bondo and it has NOT cracked yet. I know its not the ideal thing to do, but it works for me. If it was flimsy, it would crack, because it does not give. You are correct.
    The pieces are painted like that to give a contrast. I did not want to paint the entire dash on the interior like that. That would look stupid IMO.
    The 22 inch monitor is for Car shows only. I don't drive around with that monster around hanging right there.
    Thanks for your input.
    Much appreciated.
    Although It might sound like I'm mad, trust me, I'm not.
    I love the setup, and that's all what really counts.
    BTW, I am in the process looking for some kind of fabric that looks Egyptian for the interior. Its a work in progress...

    recommendation for egyptian theme:

    have something translated into hieroglyphics and embroidered on the fabric you are getting, something like your name or "Pharoah's Treasure" or something like that.

    The amps on the roof, well, sure it's different, but different isn't always better. Nobody's ever put them on the windshield, doesn't mean someone should though.

    The backup camera monitor seems redundant, why not have that display on the main screen? (Integrate and Consolidate)

    The sand color just seems random, and not thought out well. It almost like you just painted anything that could be removed with a screwdriver.

    For the show monitor, what do you do with the hanging wires when the monitor is not in there? That's what I was talking about, clean it up a little, if you can run the wires almost completely hidden, that would make it look a whole lot better.

    Overall it's fine, I don't hate it, it's a lot better than a lot of installs I've seen, I just think there's room for improvement.

    im going to do the embroidery thing,
    Just cant find the correct fabric yet.
    Personal preference: I like the back up cam separate, that way I dont have to switch anything, just look at the thing.
    I know it can be cleaned up, its in progress.
