    Talking '99 Eclipse, in dash install,lots of pics, Clean...

    For a nub that is...
    This is the first install that I have ever done...
    I just was always intrested in putting wierd things in wierd places...and plus...im a computer geek....
    or so as everybody says...
    im the only person that i know, personally that has ever done such a thing.
    These pics were all taken yesterday from 4:00pm to 7:30pm...meaning, i did everything in under 4 hours...including driving, running back and forth...and idling...which im good at.

    just so you know...i kinda wanted to make a newbie guide for my friends if they ever dare venture into the unknown like i have...


    The Package for the lilliput 7' monitor came in at close to 4...and when it came....i was shaking with excitement


    ohh...what a beaut... I already like how it looks....



    See how it will fit into my dash console area




    just got it...but i cant help it...i must take it apart....


    first i took off the bottom bar part.... and the buttons.


    boredom...thats not gonna work...mabie i should of gone for an 8 inch?


    frame check...IT FITS!!!


    take this beaut. logo off...


    umm...this is what i want to do...cut that off... but thats not gonna work...


    thanks dad for letting me loan your tools without your permission!!!


    bwhahahaha the cutting begins....

    do you by any chance have an amp for the speakers yet? because if you do i would highly recommend complete deletion of the radio all together. Otherwise, not too bad for a 1st time install. Any more pics of the PC case?

    does that plastic putty give you enough support for pushing with your finger? you may want to use some epoxy to just add more strength to that... or go with the ABS Sludge...

    Im still working on the pc case because i dont have a motherboard yet.
    Just a question....ya i have an amp for the speakers, why should i get rid of it?

    The plastic putty stuff gives plenty of support for the pushing of my finger, that stuff hardens like crazy and stays that way.

    First off, please, please, please, get rid of that Doreamon steering wheel cover.

    Nice location though, fits so nicely.
