    Okay all the parts are here, actually everything minus the Opus, but that can wait anyway. They came in on Friday, I quickly got to work hooking everything up and downloading the latest drivers. The only thing that gave me some issues is RR kept wanting to reload Iguidance when I clicked on GPS, which caused it to give me an error saying I had no signal, when infact I did but the other instance of Iguidance was using it. Here are some pics... I just noticed I don't have one of the GPS yet, but I will get it and put it up...

    Now I am having huge fabrication issues - basically they are that I can't start because I don't have a solid plan, it keeps changing every 10 minutes.
    Now I don't know if I want to use wood or fiberglass, maybe I just need to suck it up and use fiberglass..

    Okay - so for the few who are reading this thread... the answer I came up with was to scratch the lower dash install and install the lilliput in the soft vinyl covered part of the top of the dash. I ordered the part and it should be here next week sometime. My biggest concern is glare at the moment, plus I read somewhere that the foam shriks after a while when it has been cut.

    I will - I have the dash coming in the next few days, probably monday or tuesday. Once that comes I will be doing some real fab work. Once that is done I just need to run power to it and I should be all set... hopefully in the next few weeks it will be "done"... Then I move on to the next car, this one is just for learning purposes and fun. I am looking into different rocker switchs now. I still have to learn more about doing the electric, I can't seem to find what fuses to use and what gauge wire to use.

    Dash is in - I am having a little nervs cutting into it, so it has been sitting in the garage all day :-) Tomorrow will be cutting day :-) I measured like 5 times, but couldn't even get myself to mark out where I need to cut. My OPUS came in too, but it was missing some parts, so the guy is looking for them and sending them over now.

    I have a full cage in my YJ so mounting the 8" Lilliput to the spreader was easy, I put an opus behind the glove box to run the Lilliput, a USB hub and to sequence the CF28 under the rear seat



    Ran this for about a year, never any problems with the HD

    Similar setup in my TJ, but I mounted the Lilliput up high and a D210GLY in a Voom case between the overhead spreaders



    Lots of hard wheeling. no problems (yet) with 2.5 inch drives
