    Exterior

    I forgot to mention that aside from the internal electronic component upgrades I will be getting a few things done on the outside.

    • Complete wrapping the remainder of my car (the sides)
    • Retrofit headlamps with projector and LED switchback signals
    • Replace rear lamps with LED
    • Front lambo doors (bolt on - the kind that opens normal then raise up)


    The pics below are what my car looks like now and one has the white carbon fiber wrap that I am getting done on the sides.

    This is the white I planned for the sides. Actually next week I am going to the shop to discuss this. So hopefully this can be done in about a month or so.

    I was at the mall today and they have a Tesla store in there. My new favorite car...but anywayz, The dash had the long tablet looking touch display. It was just awesome. So it got me thinking...hmm... what if I do bigger? What if I get a 10" tab this time?

    I know this is not a great photo but if you look close you can see how the dash is. Electric car so the entire dash and console is all digital.

    I have this idea on how I may be able to complete this upgrade and ultimately my project altogether sooner. Stay tuned for details...

    Once again really great work. I saw a prototype vehicle with a 17" screen in portrait mode and realised how great an FE could be when designed for larger size and layout. Did a few trial rewrites on the test bench with an FE on 12" and I'm absolutely sold on it. I think I can fit a 12" to 14" into my vehicle so I'm just holding out for the right screen. Look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    Hey hexamillion,

    I read through your previous thread and you did great work! Can you comment on how much bigger a 7" tablet is in comparison to a standard double din head unit? I'm looking to do something similar by modifying a double DIN dash kit for my Fusion.

    I have the GalxayTab which is 8" and it was a perfect fit in my double din kit. The mods I made was more for giving it a more clean look but as far as the size I would think 7" should be just fine. You can't really get away from any mods..that's just all part of it.

    Thanks! I figured there will be some modding involved. Plus, I want mine to be removable so that will be an added challenge. I'll be picking up the dash kit, head unit and adapters when I hit up the states in a few weeks (prices suck in Canada). I will be sure to get a mod thread going once I start!

    You may be wondering why I have not updated in a while. Well..the phoenix heat is about here and I want toget some minor mechanical maintenance out of the way. Not to mention I am still trying to decide which tablet I want. I was eyeballing the Samsung Note tablet...but then I stumbled across a blog that featured a leak about the Samsung S Tablet rumored for later this year. If that is the case I am definitely going to hold off until then because the Galaxy S smartphone is awesome. I can't image what the tablet would be like.

    Here's the post if you're interested: http://bgr.com/2013/04/02/samsung-ga...-rumor-410181/

    I have a GS3, and love it. That S tablet specs looks awesome, and would make a great choice.
