    S2000 isn't an easy car to do it on. Just look at it. Honda even had trouble putting the single DIN receiver in. Maybe the CF texture is ugly, but I don't think there was any better way to do it.

    there really wasn't any other way to do it. My first attempt was making the in-dash enclosure but when i installed it, i found that it interfiered with my shifting, so i sold it on ebay.

    Thanks for all the feedback guys, i enjoy both the positive and the negative.

    I will be doing another s2000 soon, ill post picks when its done

    Please give me more feedback!!! thank you!!

    Good job on the install. There are things that people will like and dislike. I like the screen mount. I think the way the lights are hitting it in the pics are kinda making it look like crap. Try and get some pics with not as harsh light.

    I don't like the USB connection mount, or the antenna wire in the back. But this is also the first version of your carputer so its going to have its rough spots. I know my first version did. Dont get me wrong though, I have seen good and bad installs, and this one is definatly on its way to being great. Just need to smooth out the rough areas.

    I started out doing this as a hobby at 17, and I already have a full time installer job doing video systems in cars and I am only turning 19 in about a month.

    darkhalo, what kind of case is that; it's huge! (or your trunk is very small). LOL

    The gloss on the carbon fiber frame makes it look bleh against your matte black dash; which detracts from the build only slightly, IMHO.

    If you either 1. Had more cf (tastefully done) or 2. Take a better picture out of direct sunlight. It would probably look/flow much better. I bet in person it looks better than the pictures we've had a privy to see.

    Big props on the install, though. I hope mine comes out as well done.
