    2006 Honda Civic Breaking Ground (What Warranty?)

    Well, I just got my new car this week, it's time to break it in with some mods Here is the car, it's a 2006 Honda Civic LX:

    Also you'll see what my car looks like now, and the photoshop concept of what it might look like. I will keep this thread updated as I go.

    Now for some carputer pics

    Here are some pictures of the computer I put together to mount under the poodle shelf in the trunk.

    It is a PIII 866 MHz, w/ 384 MB RAM, 80 GB, 250watt power supply. Haven't decided front end yet. I basically just took an old case and cut it up into this thing. It is 8.5" x 4.5" x 13". Big, but it will work

    Now all it will take is some time and effort to get it all done. Any suggestions on layout?

    Nice work, I had to do a sidebyside comparison just to know what you cut from your dash and where you filled it in haha. Im thinking of doing the same to a 99 civic dash any suggestions?

    By the way is that a AMD heatsink on your processor?? (looks abit like one)

    if your half as good at fabricating that dash, as you are with photoshop this should be really nice

    looks like a bit of a challenge, but if you don't cut the bottom of the dash & have the bezel overlay the lower you should be fine..... still looks like it'll need some chopping though.... good luck with it.....

    new bezel

    Thanx guys, it will be a challenge no doubt, it's all mapped out in my mind. We'll see, I did consider getting a NAV bezel, but I want to keep the factory stereo. I like the way it looks and operates. Not much power, but that can always be fixed with some amp action. I'm fiberglassing a 10" sub box right now for the corner of the trunk. I'll post some pics when that moves forward a little.

    I've had my Civic long enough now that I don't cringe too much when I think about cutting the dash to install a screen. (It's my first new car) I'm looking foward to see what you get done, the concept looks awesome.
    Any plans to hook into the CAN?
