    Skoda Octavia Install

    Almost happy with the install now
    So thought its about time to put a few pictures up

    Was getting really dishartend about ever finnishing relocating the climate controls. But once as i managed to get the bottom part of the dash of it was fairly easy

    The boot


    The PC


    The Dash



    Goind to re-carpet the PC and amp this weekend with a better match carpet to the OEM stuff
    Might drop a Slot load CD underneath the PC
    Bluetooth & WiFi still to install
    Better fitting of the GPS receiver

    Cant make my mind up if it would look better with a much brighter shade of silver for the dash

    Id love some suggestions on improvments

    not sure what else to do

    What do you lot rekon then ?

    and i know my steering wheel is on the wrong side
    got plenty of work in progress pics if you want aswell

    Got a few pictures of the instalation

    The dash front removed cut down to fit the dash bezel
    had to cut the lower hole to size to fit the front of the stereo
    the climate was here but will be being moved to the ash tray


    Test fitted


    fibreglass, fillered, painted ect you know the routine


    Painted and laquerd


    I had to carefully cut all the buttons above the screen about 4mm to fit in the smaller gap after the screen was in



    Most of the PC built using a morex case
    i removed the front panel and cut a hole in the lid lit and perspexed with a blue tinted perspex i had from an old computer case i had modified


    Cut an MDF pannel to fit on the side of the boot.......... sorry trunk


    Then trimmed it and fitted all the computer bits
    the box to the left of the PC has usb ports on it with two 2 throw relays to cut the usb power when the PC is off


    This bit took ages to build
    small kids have there uses passing the cable sleeving around the cable while i fit it
    wiring loom remote from the ignition to the opus, 12v & 5v from a morex to power the screen



    got a few pictures of moving the climate but there a bit boring
    that was a real pain to do aswell


    and finally a few pictures of what is all been fitted to

    I like that paint finish you did with that. I was going to put mine in the back quarter panel like you have done, but I don't trust drivers around here all that much seeings as how the car I've had has been rear ended 3 times.

    Did you order that paint or what?
