Hey, if it weren't for messes, the state of clean wouldn't seem like anything special. My new baby is going to clean up to it's original new shiny luster, belieydat.Originally Posted by blk02si
Now, BLK02SI brings up a very good viewpoint for anybody who is considering taking on a project of their own. Planning is of the utmost importance. It would really suck if I had spent all of this time, thought, energy, money, and excitement on something just to find out that I couldn't see it very well or that I hit it with my knuckles when I'm shifting. So, think of the usability from all angles you can think of so that you aren't disappointed with an "Oh man, I wish I would have thought of that!", when you are finished. As for mine, to put any questioning minds at ease, I have designed it so that the viewable area of the screen will be well above the knob for anyone in the car to see, and I have approximately an inch from my knuckle to the screen location when I am in the forward positioned gears. Like I've said before, I seriously considered the NAV bezel route. But it didn't carry near the challenge and fun factor that this design did (It's not just to keep the stereo, even though that is one reason). And honestly, I'm lovin the OEM radio. To each his own baby! Thanks Man!
The funny thing is, you wouldn't believe the percentage of people that I know here where I live that think it's stupid to mess with a new car yet are lauding to the idea. Sometimes, you just gotta do what you want.
