    Cheers Peeps!!

    The dash install is made from fibreglass and the original dash. I had a double din slot and then underneath was an ashtray, cupholder and ciggy lighter. Out with the hacksaw and binned the above . I then used fibreglass to get the holes blanked and extend the double din hole to accomodate the screen. I also had to modify the metalwork behind the dash to allow room for the screen...

    The boot install has 2 floors, 1 in the sparewheel well (hope I don't get a puncture) and this houses the amps, hardrive, opus power supply and power distributers. The 2nd floor is to put the shopping on and of course the carputer !!

    I've also got an EL keyboared built into the glovebox

    I'll get some more pics once I get it cleaned

    Thanks!

    P.S. Here's a pic of the car...

    Just to update...now have Prymenav navigation software installed and working via mediaengine!! Using a sapphire USB GPS reciever mounted on the rear tweeter pod location next to the parcel shelf :-)

    Also have infomap navigator but this is not very good for using in a car...

    It's a 5th generation Celica, so I would guess that it's a 1992. The screen looks great, very clean work!
