    Scion XB everything in dash

    Hey guys, I had to throw this up so all three Scion versions are on page 1. Anyway, here's my 2005 Scion XB.


    After removing the top of the dash, this is what I had to work with.


    Trial fit of motherboard, opus, and xm tuner


    Added harddrive and wireless network card


    It's ugly, but it works


    Fiberglassed the 8" xenarc (don't laugh, I'll redo it when I get some time off)


    Slot load dvd mounted right behind the screen

    It's a stealth install.

    Thanks Kimax, it actually wasn't as hard as I thought. I just cut a hole in the top and mounted it against the screen. Fiberglassing the plastic cover would"ve looked better but it was just to flimsy for me to do.
    Xdjxklusivex, I've had it for almost a year now (although it was in the shop for over a month of that) and definately recommend it. Soo many different things you can do to it...it's like a civic but everybody and their grandma doesn't own one.

    Specs are as follows"
    epia M9000
    256mb
    60gb 2.5" hdd
    slim slot dvd
    8" xenarc ts
    slim linksys wireless network
    xmdirect
    frodoplayer
    gps coming withing the month

    audio specs
    alpine 7894
    arc audio xxk 1500
    image dynamics idmax12
    stock speakers (upgrading to mbquarts in a couple months)

    I love scions and how they're made for the "tuner" world. Wish there'd be as many parts for my Saturn.
    Anyways, I think this is a great install. You do need to sand out a few things on that fiberglass mold to make it look factory, but I think it's not gonna be too hard.

    good job on hiding all the stuff back there your braver then me. I'm going to utilize the massive space under the passenger seat to just put a regular mini-atx case in there and somehow secure it down maybe carpet it so it doesn't stand out.

    i just couldn't see myself taken apart the whole dash, just bought it last week >_<;
