    Good install

    Thanks for the pics. I recently bought a 2006 R51, and have been waiting to see if anyone else was doing an install. This has me excited. I took my CarPC out of my Impala when I sold it to by the Pathy and I want it back. I've been thinking about mounting a 1Din Stereo in the bottom compartment like you did. Did you have to cut the plastic to do it, or did it come apart? I really don't want to cut anything for my install if I can avoid it.

    I'm sorry but you have to cut a little bit here I have detailed pix of the installation: http://picasaweb.google.com/treki6/P...RadioInAblage#

    But it shouldn't be a problem because you can buy this part for about 40 €... so you can easylie exchange it.

    All the best from germany,
    Mike

    Ps.: MAKE PHOTOS I also want to see some more Pathfinder Installations

    I've searched for the part on eBay, etc. I've been looking for salvage yards with R51s, but no luck yet. I'd much rather cut up a spare instead of the original. Any ideas where one could pick up this piece? I guess I could try a Nissan dealer, but my experience is that they want a lot of money for that stuff. Chevrolet wanted $60 for a cup holder in my old car.

    I'll definitely take some pics. I don't think my setup will be quite as elaborate, but I hope to document it this time around.

    Very, very .. .very cool. Nice install, man. I really like it.

    I'm about to do an installation in my nismo 05 frontier, basically the same interior as yours. It's good to see I will be able to get the LCD to fit good without too much fabrication work. I have myself a 12v to 19v power supply for a Acer Aspire 1.6ghz netbook and a EBY701 Lilliput touch screen with LED backlight on the way to get me started.

    I'm just going to tap the audio from the computer into the factory rockford fosgate amplifier low-level inputs and make things easy for now.

    I just purchased a license for centrafuse 3, I loved version two, good to see you're running it too, its a great piece of software, truly.

    I had no luck with local salvage yards. Found one 1000 miles away, but they said I'd have to come up and take it out myself. Yeah, right. So I broke down and bought a new one from Nissan for $60 USD.
