    2006 Nissan Frontier install

    If you remember, but you probably don't, I installed my first CarPuter in my 2003 Mazda Miata LS.

    But I got a new truck a few weeks ago and am migrating the CarPuter there (well... now it's a TruckPuter). The Miata (sans-CarPuter) is for sale, if you're interested.

    Basically I'm ripping out the entire factory audio system in my 2006 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab and installing:

    Infinity Kappa 50.7 Components in the front
    Infinity Kappa 60.7 Components in the rear
    Infinity Reference 5761a 560 Watt 6-channel amplifier
    JBL GTO1002D 10" Dual-Coil subwoofer

    All driven by my 'puter... a Via Epia M10k in a Morex 3688 case with an M1-ATX power supply... and a Xenarc 7" TSV in the dash.

    You can monitor my progress on my blog at http://chadgoode.com/tag/carputer

    Cheers!

    I hope the Frontier comes out as good as the Miata too. :-)

    The Miata is a 5-speed manual. I'm asking $16,500.

    For all the spec's, here is a link to my CarsDirect ad. http://www.carsdirect.com/used_cars/...ng_id=18948553

    Sorry. It's a complete system overhaul and a work-in-progress. I don't yet have any 'finished' pictures because, well, it's not finished. All the remains is installing the new speakers in the doors and permanently mounting the LCD in the dash. The latter, though, may take more thought and time.

    Today I did a temp/test-mount of the LCD in the dash, and even recessed a bit, it's too bright in the truck to see the screen in the daytime. I'm going to have to research some other people's jobs for ideas on how to eliminate the glare.

    But in case you missed it, here is a link to the complete photo gallery.

    Motorcycle accident. The surgeon was kind enough to take pictures... and give me some copies. :-)

    As before, you can see the whole gallery at My TruckPuter Gallery.

    Since the last post, I got my subwoofer installed and also the Xenarc mounted in the dash. Luckily/surprisingly, it didn't require any dash fabrication whatsoever. I almost feel like I cheated (or was cheated out of the challenge). The Xenarc fit right in without having to destroy the case nor my dash... and it looks OEM.

    Here are a couple finished pics. These were taken at night with a flash, so they're not the greatest.
