    I'm interested to see how this turns out.

    I'm just now reading up on getting a carPC going so I can have all my audio processing done by one central.

    I was concerned that 8" was going to be pushing it, but heck... guess not now.

    THREAD REVIVAL!!!



    i had to smooth the transition out, and i noticed in the pics that the facets dont look eaven, so those need more work, in person you cant tell at all







    here is a ammusing shot to the old one and the new one... i got three total, one got smashed this is the second and my last one just in case


    the MOBO, Tier one!


    the back with little spacers, there is still plastic on it. acrylic is all i had and its easy to work with.



    and my work table, its on top of my waterchange tank for my other fishtanks.
    note the use of sticks, sharpies and foan to sand with





    So then i got to playing with fitting everything. then im gonna get paint...



    so here are the pics of today... they are by far the best pics of the dash by far... all of the pics i have seen show no depth at all... there is almost 9.5" back of space... thats HUGE!, i was worried... but i have no worries now.

    taking the dash apart was easy... to a point. the problem was that the radio is bolted in from the bottom. thats accesable from the lil-cubby where my sunglasses live.


    this is the radio harness... took 6-7 min to get to this point.




    there are no good pics of the stock unit either so i figured i would take a few pics...














    LOOK AT ALL THAT SPACE!!!, my fuzzy hand fits in there with tons of room to spair...


    Test fit of the dash to make sure that there arnt any clerance issues...


    there where... i moved the SRS light so that i could get the screen in there, the problem is that the vent bolts to one of the posts i moved. so that will have to be.... ADJUSTED!, other then that i was really impressed with the day.

    I need to trim here, the epoxy dripped down a bit and the heater controles wont fit right...


    Im going to need a more SOLID place to attatch the hdd, so its going onto the knee bolster

    ^^^^ thats the obdII port thats going to get moved BTW...



    here is the other cluster, this will also be painted...


    the IR led's will all go where, im going to duplicate the cluster hood, 20 times smaller and place the led's in there like little tiny guage pods.

    and the back, just for $hits and giggles...


    Oh this is me asking for a 8mm socket, wondering my my own brother isnt giving it to me???, well as it turns out it was because he was taking the pic...




    handsome upside down arnt i?


    heres some more progress..., im thinking of calling in sick to get some more work done tomarow..

    my brother decided to help out and do a bit of carylic work... we had to cut down the mobo backer down to the exact size of the mobo... and the PSU(poser supply) was mounted on some risers of its own... lol, there is no reason for the fancyness, mo one will ever see it, but... meh might aswell..


    Oh by the way, i find that its really really hard to take a bad picture with this camera... Dear Lebus i like by DR...







    Next was the usb hub... its powered by the PSU's 5V output that used to go to a floppy drive, dont have one of those...

    Removed it from the care, which was just too big...


    and backed it with plasitc to be mounted...


    and mounted it.




    But i need more ports, so useing the onboard ports he decided to make a plate...



    this is ROUGH!!!, they will all be filed down nice and smooth.


    And it will be glues to go here...





    here is some work with finishing putty...
    sorry that its a bit dusty...






    More work is needed, some of the curves and lines just arnt perfect...



    oh and i did call in sick today, they asked me not to come back , so i have a week off untill i start my new job...


    here is the paint that i got BTW...

    It covers like a MOFO!!! one swipe and everything is fully covered.




    [HL]STAY TUNED!!![/HL]

    Nice work so far. I have a 2007 Civic Si and i noticed there are like no people on here with these civics so i'm glad you got your post up here. I've started my first build and i'm going the less custom fabrication route because 1 i have like no tools that can do any of those things all my tools are for like electrical work. 2 I only know the electrical part :-D. Let us know how its going now.
