2004 Infiniti G35 Coupe || My 2nd CarPC Worklog || **NO 56k**
So I bought a 2004 Infiniti G35 on August 29 2007. I Previously drove a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire with a very respectable CarPC setup. The Car computer worked perfectly, the install was a little rough around the edges.
For the Infiniti, I wanted to make everything look great. TurboCad's FX was my goal. I do not have his skill, but i feel patience and planning can be a decent substitute.
I will upload lots of pics, but I have no 'before' pictures at this point, but you know what a G35 looks like
My carry over parts from the old PC:
Via Epia m10000
320 WD Caviar
Lilliput 8" TS 4:3
512 MB pc 2600
On Friday afternoon: 10/6/2007 I started exploring my center console for locations that I can stow my PC parts.
I hopped into the back seat and saw my rear ash tray
Which i promptly popped out and reached my hand in and felt a huge cavernous area.
To remove the ash tray push down on the shiny metal part as shown then the part comes out.
Curiosity led me to take the center console lid off and see the space I had to work with.
The box with the orange label is my airbag monitor, I need to be careful with that.
Here I have taken off the Shifter cover to expose some more space to work with.
The black box with the purple label on the plug is my G-meter/accelerometer, that tells the nanny Traction control when to come on. Nissan calls this VSC, I think
The first cut is the deepest, I didn't think twice about these cuts, because if i put it all back together you would never notice. Anyway, you can compare this photo with the last to see that I just took out some of the ABS plastic to allow more room for motherboards and the like
