Opel/Frontera Sport RS (Isuzu Amigo) Carputer Install
Hey dudes and dudettes!
I finally got my new Frontera Sport (Amigo in the US) and spent the weekend playing with my new install. Big thanks go to Spyda for helping me at the weekend.
I had to mount the GPS mouse outside as I was unable to get a constant signal underneath the plastic hard top.
The boot is a little ghetto, but I will be putting a false floor in it once I get hold of my carpenter mate and some MDF!
The Dongle can be seen here at the back... are these things waterproof?
You gotta love Xenarcs! Fully legible in the daylight, not even put a tint on my windows yet!
Still to install the Sub and AMP, the wires are in, and routed through, its just that small concept we call time! I also seem to have wired my head unit up wrong and it doesn't seem to keep the memory settings for the stereo when I start it, and on crank... any ideas?
I had to rip (well spyda did) all the dash off, to guide those wires around the back and I fed all the power cables down the left hand side of the car. I wish I had done it on the right now, but hey its done, and I cant find the undo button.
I will be placing the PC in the rear compartment once I can find a decent way of mounting it. I had to remove the plasting insert, but I am sure that it'll look cool once done.
Yeah, I'm Well Chuffed With It
It was quite a job, dash had to be ripped off and I had only had the car 48 hours...
I've not seen many in that colour, but it does ooze "pimp me please" a little bit. I know its a soft-roader, but I am more than happy with it.
Still to do:
Tidy the install with some MDFing
make a custom partitioned parcel shelf
Rancho 9000s Shock Install
Chrome Bullbars and Side steps
Soft Top Conversion
Possibly a 3" body lift
Oh and earn some more money to throw at it :)
So when we having a Kent/SE Meet again then people? Now I am installed, it's time to spread the word!
