    Very nice. Can't say enough from the instrument panel which looks neat, the dash, and the trunk setup. just looks great.

    Paul @ Audio One called me about this earlier on - as it's just up the road from me it would be rude not to pop along!

    No, I absolutely hate having air blown into my face so they were always turned off anyway The Supra has a really cool AC system that has lots of other vents around, so I cant say i've noticed any difference whatsoever.

    As for the filler, I have to plead ignorance on that one - Audio One are the people to speak to in that regard, i'm just a crazy customer

    My thoughts exactly, which was the primary motive for doing any of this. Desperately wanted to get rid of that 80's feel, and bring the interior up to date with the timeless exterior. It's funny, it's a 12 year old car, and IMHO looks lots and lots better than 99% of brand new cars out there.

    I really appreciate all the nice comments people have made, sometimes (particularly on the internet) the green eyed monster comes out, but all the comments on this board have been constructive and I appreciate that!

    Everytime I go into the garage I always catch myself thinking "cool, I own that!".

    I thought i'd post a few of the exterior for you so you know what this install is in, as everyone else in this section seems to do it

    So i take it you decided not to use a front end since you were using the powermate then?Amazing install,mine won't be nearly as sweet.What did you do about powering the mini?Do you just run an invertor and shut it down when you park it for the night?

    How do you like the Tru's?I almost bought a sh-1 for my install,but i decided it was too much,going to run Arc xxk's now.Heard good things about the re's too.I bet that dakota digital setup cost you a pretty penny too.I've seen the prices for a standard dash setup before .The company is based in a town about 8 hours from me.

    How does it work for functionality to use the powermate for audio?I may try this until a good front end is released.Once again,awesome install!

    There aren't any frontend's available for the Mac as far as I know, although there are a couple in development (come on hybrid, release iMeedia!). When the front ends do come however, the powermate will be doing it's thang still, as it has the ability to take custom settings for custom apps

    Amazing install,mine won't be nearly as sweet.
    Thanks man, I really appreciate the kind words.

    What did you do about powering the mini?Do you just run an invertor and shut it down when you park it for the night?
    Currently, yes, however I have a Carnetix CNX-P1900 winging it's way to me.

    How do you like the Tru's? Heard good things about the re's too.
    I love my setup hardware wise, the amps are awesome, and kick out waaaay more than their rated figures. Pretty looking too, and fit in 100% with my look, which was pretty much pure coincidence The R.E's are sick, and can handle 3000w - but are still extremely good handling subs, great SQ.

    I bet that dakota digital setup cost you a pretty penny too.I've seen the prices for a standard dash setup before .
    Actually I thought their setup was really reasonablly priced considering the impact that it has. Anyone that see's it in the flesh is just dumbfounded at how cool it looks.

    How does it work for functionality to use the powermate for audio?
    The Powermate has several 'functions' - Click, Rotate Right, Rotate Left, Click+Rotate Right, Click+Rotate left etc. For iTunes for instance, I have click as pause/play, rotate right increases the volume, rotate left decreases the volume, and click+rotate skips to the previous/next track. As I said, the controls are programmable on a per-program basis, so I have different settings depending on what program i'm using

    cant really say anything that anyone hasnt said before really, ENVY!

    looked at that dakota digital stuff a few years ago, and dam it was very expensive, but when you compare it to similar things like standard dash pannels and STACK dash systems its really not bad at all as said

    you done much under the bonnet? any pics?

    I'm only 22, so as you can imagine insurance is pretty spiteful here in the UK on a car as rare as this. Engine modifications are a bit out of the question at the moment, although i've still managed to do a little bit
