    2003 Chevy Avalanche 98% done - 15 picts

    I am still playing around with different front ends, and doing a little other stuff, but am getting close to finished up on this project which I have been working on just a little at a time.

    First this is the vehicle I am working with:







    NOW...

    Here come a bunch of pictures of my console creation process:

    Maybe I missed it, I was just skimming through...why didnt you just put the screen where the double-dim is? better for vision and it would look cleaner

    Because I still want the stock in dash AM/FM/On* stereo. In addition to keep both rear seat control w/headphones and steering wheel controls you are looking at some not easy stuff. $400+ in modules and still no rear seat controls.

    My wife sometimes does not like all the electronics when she drives, so she can ignore it all if she desires and just use the stock setup.

    looks pimp! but! if i were you i would have recessed it in sucha way that when u look down it looks right at you and not facing backwads kinda hard to explane but it would be about a 1.5 inch uptp and 1 inch on the bottom but right now that looks off tha chain!

    Well, yeah, but why couldn't you have just put the stock stereo where you monitor is right now and mount the screen where your radio is??

    Nice install either way though...

    Peace,

    Yeah, guess I could. Would have been fun to try and move the wires for that, and more chance to get pulled over by the cops. Most can't see in to view what is on the lower console right now. Maybe next time I will do the upper mount. I had ordered this lower bezel quite some time ago and figured this would be a quick and easy way to go.

    Right now I have someone that wants to buy the bezel with screen, so maybe I will start over and try something else this time...

    Thats what I'm doing. Minus the stock stereo. I'm gonna put my dvd in instead. Except mine came with the bench so I don't even have the center console. I'd buy one but then there wouldnt be enough room for the feet of the person in the middle seat. So I'm gonna fab one that hugs the dash a little tighter.
