    2005 G35 Coupe Installation w/ Lilliput 701

    I am in the process of completing this install which I have been working on for a couple of months (I am in law school, so free time is kind of short). My setup includes:

    HP NC 6000 powered w/ an inverter
    Lilliput 701 mounted in a 2004 g35 housing.
    USB touchpad
    2 JL Audio 10" W3 mounted in a custon infiniti enclosure
    800.1 Rockford Fosgate Amp
    PS3 USB Keyboard (may upgrade to a Logitech DiNovo (which is a legal term btw))

    Currently I have pictures of the modifications to the 2004 Housing. I also modified the cupholder lid to recess the touchpad flush with the bottom of the cover (will include pictures soon). I am modifying the g35 housing so that it can be used with a lilliput screen, instead of a xenarc. The modifications are nice because there is no need to remove any ribbon cables and deal with that whole mess. We had to cut out a small hole on the side of hte housing to make room for the circuit board to fit inside. I plan to put a thin vent on the side to cover the hole.

    I will also be using IGuidance for GPS, Widcomm Bluetooth Audio Gateway and a slot load DVD drive mounted in the upper glove box. I will not be using a front end.

    Looks like your off to a good start. That DiNovo sure is a nice keyboard.

    Installation pictures

    I installed everything over the weekend and have been working out some of the kinks. So far the bluetooth works pretty well, GPS works great and everything else is fine. I blew a relay today, so I will have to wait for current pictures of the install but everything else is pretty good. The touchscreen connection is so/so and I have been using my touchpad mouse, but I will probably replace the screen. If anyone has any advice on Lilliput touchscreens housed in aluminum cases, please let me know.

    In case you are wondering, that one closeup picture is of the rearview mirror, with a noise dampening microphone that I took out of its casing and ran through the headliner. It is about the size of pencil eraser and is just barely visible from behind the headliner. It works remarkably well for bluetooth purposes, although I think I should just upgrade to an iphone. Also, that hole in the side of the monitor was needed to make the board fit, I didn't want the hole that big, but I didn't do the cutting so I think instead I will just glue a small black vent over it, and make it look like it was supposed to be there.

    I will try to post pictures of the completed install very soon. It looks very good, and I love having it installed finally.

    Aluminum Housing

    It is the housing for the 03-04 Coupe that my friend and I modified for use in the 2005 model. (after 2004 the cubby was made differently, the cover is wider and you have to cut an additional track into the plastic to make the 2005 cubby door open up). The screen slides up and out and back in the same way but it is not motorized or spring loaded (like the navigation screen). Maybe when I get more time I can motorize or spring load it but I usually leave it up anyway. I think it looks almost stock so most people don't notice until it comes on.

    You could also patch the hole, and paint. I did not like the bare aluminum look. I got some texture paint at Lowe's and a semi gloss black.

    Yeah that hole looks terrible, but I have a very small thin vent that I will put on the side there, so it will look like it is just a regular vent and not a hole. I just took the NYS Bar exam so I have been crazy busy for the last few months. I ordered some new parts though, I plan on finishing the glove box with a piece of abs plastic so that it just has a hole for the ipod connector, a slot for the dvd and a couple of usb ports. I got a small bluetooth keyboard on ebay, and plan on running a usb hub into the center console.
