carpcnoobie and j81bird the PSOne LCD is VGA Modded. I make the TTL Circuit that convert HSync and VSync to CSync along with Matrox Mystic 200 video card. This card is known to work with PowerStrip setting @ 600x680 interlate mode.
Take a look at my post on this thread
Making the RGB signal stronger?
or the whole thread Making the RGB signal stronger?
AWESOME Im going to be doing the same to my 87 Turbo, Why did you go w/ the PS screen when we have a double DIN, a screen will fit perfect in there, and you should take tht mouse apart or get a smaller one and place it in the flip up box, so its conceled when not needed.
good job though,
The double DIN is occupied by the Alpine HU and Sony EQ. Unless I go HU less, but that is not an option for me as I need AM radio for LA traffic. Sometime later (I don't know when) I will modify the LCD so that it will fit in a 1/2 DIN or full DIN and I have to move the EQ somewhere.Originally Posted by cassio
hmm, i thought there was something you could put in comps to receive am/fm....
well i fyou need it i guess you have to keep it. Im going for just the screen and a 5.1 system, and a few extra goodies, such as GPS, and a few other apps.
again good work cassio
*****in ride Matrix. Let me ask you something: I was thinking of buying an MKIII supra (Rear wheel drive Northstar V8, But I digress) anyway, Are those AUDIO controls I see in the wheel, I didnt know they came with that option.
v8 mkIII supras dont exist... you must be getting a chopped one w/ a camaro engine in it or something. all Supras in america were 3.0L Inline 6cylinder enginesTurbo and non turbo, there was a Japanese versio that had a 2.5 L Twin Turbo.
Northstar V8, Nope!!
Like Cassio said, there is NO Northstar nor V8 in ANY Supras. The Supra only come in 3 different engines. 3.0L NA (7M-GE), 3.0L Turbo (7M-GTE), and 2.5L Twin Turbo (1J-GTE) all inline 6. The 2.5L is only available in Japan (or some other RHR countries) but not in the US.
There are a few in SoCal who has 2.5L Twin Turbo setup in their Mk3 but those are imported engines.
As of the AUDIO controls on steering wheel, no those are NOT audio control. Those buttons are for cruise control.
Alright after I am getting tired of flip the screen down so I can use the HVAC, I decided to do a bit futher posting on this thread for fabrication ideas. I took the Rotozip and cut the bezel where the ash tray used to be.
The bezel before.
After the cut and the front PSOne screen is in place.
Bondo Glass first pass.
Light weight Bondo body filler.
Sanding extra bondo filler.
Sanding and more sanding. The back after mount to radio bezel
Front with Winamp5. The paint is Rustolium painter's touch vinyl black.
Everything is in place. Left of the LCD is the Power and HD LEDs, Power button and SDC kill switch and PSU ACC switch.
Some notes: I mount the 1/2 DIN EQ behind the LCD so that the LCD controller board is laying between the radio and the EQ. I can't no longer adjust the EQ or the PSOne brightness control. To do so, I have to take the bezel out. That is a pain in the a$$ job.
The bezel material is a PITA to work with. There are imperfection with bondoing and the whole process, but I don't really care much. Look close up, there is the line where bondo and rubber met that is su<k but that is the best I can do with the bezel material. I am more than happy with the previous setup.
oh yeah, I swap out the old 550MHz CPU with the old "new" 600MHz and 500MB RAM. That's it for the Supra. No more update except the DC-DC PSU which will soon be a custom Mastero/Sproggy MK4.
