I like it! - looks like the project is going well for you.
I like the location that you picked to mount the computer, looks really clean.
This is how I want to make it. Ofcourse with a Opel Astra, and not with a Vauxhall Astra as seen in the picture below.
I don't dislike the look of the buttons. But then again, everyone with its pleasures
Just an amator question :-) :
how do you remove the central console for the opel astra II like the one in erwin's first post?
This is exactly what i'm doing right now - mounting the screen in place of the heater vents and the top DIN slot, and moving the HU to the bottom DIN slot.
Removing the centre console on Astra G is easy, just pull out the head unit and there are two screws on either side of it, pull out the ashtray/cigarette lighter assembly and there are two screws there, and there are some clips around the top u can flip off with a screwdriver. Also, the heater controls have metal clips to flip off. 10 minute job.

It is not amator to ask. It is better to ask how the console is mounted than taking it apart and maybe breaking it. I didn't do is myself yet so I can't explain. But I think the tutorial Phaser2001 posten will help (THNX Phaser2001 ).Originally Posted by kelu
10x, the tutorial is very good
I wanted to try yesterday, but I saw there is a hole on the top side inside the small box under the vents , so I took that off first and then the head unit.
then I had enough space to play with my cables and to do what I wanted ...
A photo of the HU can be found in my first post.
I havn't got a photo straight to the HU that is built in the dash. I'll make one soon and I post it for you.
