    Smile 2005 Nissan Frontier (PC, Flip Down Install) "The Darkness"

    Here are some of the items and the progress of items going in my truck called "the darkness".
    PC from Mo-Co-So
    Lilliput GL629 from Mo-Co-So
    JVC KD-DV5400 for the stereo portion to run my portable sirius unit. The DV5400 is also a In Dash car stereo DVD player with video out.
    13.5" thin flip down monitor.
    Below is the pictures of my truck and my progress.


    Below is a stock photo of the interior

    Installation of the JVC KD-DV5400:
    I had to fabricate a console to hold the DVD player. The stock radio that was in the truck will be removed and replaced with a lilliput monitor. Oh yeah, this is the second time i have ever touched fiberglass so take it easy on me.

    Its almost finished

    After a couple months of tweaking stuff its finally finished. I didnt take any pictures while i was finishing the install so for that i am sorry but here are some pictures of the finished product. If you have any questions about the install dont hesitate to PM me.

    Finished new console. The JVC Stereo is also a dvd player.

    Windows XP SP3 Bootup.


    This is a neat little Bluetooth Keyboard/Mouse that i found called the Logitech DiNovo mini.

    Front End Software Called Centrafuse.


    For Navigation i chose Garmin Mobile PC


    While the interior was tore apart i installed a Rear Monitor.

    Rear Monitor Running Garmin






    This pic is hard to see but with this setup im able to watch a Movie in front while Navigation is running in the overhead monitor. And vice versa.

    The carputer has a rca video out. Now to get regular dvd's to play on it i used a Boss Audio BV-AM5 Video Signal Amplifier. It splits the video signal from the dvd player then amplifies it. Thats how im able to watch a dvd on the Lilliput and the 13" overhead monitor. Hope that answers your question.

    For this being your second time with fiberglass, I have to say that the piece you made for the head unit is very nice. The entire install is top notch. Congrats.

    One question though. It looks like the Lilliput is just set in the spot where the factory stereo was. Is that secure? I mean, does it move when you are driving or did you bolt it in place? Did you set it up so you can easily remove the screen when you leave the car? Just curious. That is all.

    Thanks for the kind words with the fiberglass. It was alot of trial and error with the fiberglassing.

    As far as the lilliput is concerned the factory stereo has mounting brackets that bolt to the side of the factory stereo. I just removed those brackets and bolted the lilliput to those brackets. As far as removal is concerned i thought about that when i was installing all the eqiupment. Just incase i traded the vehicle off. But removal for the lilliput is just 4 bolts attached to the factory mounting brackets.

    nice work considering you had never really played with fibreglass before.
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story
