    2006 Lincoln Town Car (here we go)

    This is the before shot of the Dash.


    Now that all the parts have all arrived, except for the wiring harness it's time to get started.

    Received the custom chassis today.

    Ordered from forum member blk02si. (Great work and great thread check it out LINK I then proceeded to take apart the screen to mount it to the Metra Kit. As it turns out the new Xenarc has been changed and it now only has two connectors on it when you take it apart.



    One for the speaker which we no longer need and one for the screen back light. All of the electronics are now on one board. This will complicate matters as there is little flexibility to the ribbon cable that is attached to the screen.

    Here is the screen trim mounted to the Metra Trim Kit.

    Still needs filling sanding filling sanding and so on, you know the routine and then paint. Now if I could only find the matching paint!

    Next: I have to make some brackets to hold the screen PC board.

    Kit

    Please tell me how to buy the kit you bought for your Town Car. I have a 1999 model that I would love to add this too.

    Thank you,

    Rocco

    Rocco, there is no "KIT", I purchased the chassis from forum member blk02si. He made the chassis from a CAD drawing that I made. The "KIT" is simply a METRA double DIN Dash kit # 95-5810. You can check online for a specific unit for your car at hxxp://www.metraonline.com. I believe Circut city sells the METRA Kits as well. Don't go buy the number that I gave you since I know there have been changes since 99.

    Check out the link I gave in the above post that refers to the thread that I learned a lot from. It will take quite a bit of reading but it is well worth it.

    Motherboard is VIA-EPIA-PX-PX10000G-PICO-ITX. Man its small. It's almost the size of my PDA. It's running RR with Digital FX with the Lincoln spinning logo. Looks pretty cool. Will post more will likely run out of free time before Xmas though.

    Looking awesome csurfer!

    Let us know how that Pico Board runs.

    Post some pics of how you have the hardware mounted also, Im quite curious how these pico boards are wired.

    Def looks like it came that way from the factory. Once my buddy with the Towncar sees this thread I believe he will be hooked into making one
    Build Things, it keeps your brain busy.
