    2000 Volkswagen Jetta Complete Install

    This project took way longer than I thought and WAY more money than I thought. It is complete now, but for certain reasons I need to get a different car, so now that all the bugs are out of it I won't be able to enjoy it. In my next car I won't be doing a CarPC at first due to a lack of time and different priorities in my cash flow right now, but with the amount that I have learned with this one, when I do do another one it will be much better and hopefully a lot smoother install.

    I don't have time right now to go through all the itty bitty details, but hopefully I'll get a chance to put up some more info soon.

    I wanted to keep the system as much integrated and OEM into the interior of the car as possible. Other than the large speaker box in the trunk and some ports in the front the car looks relatively stock/OEMish. I had a few issues with it freezing and sound issues, but in the end it all work awesome now and the sound is amazing.
