    2000 Sunfire Install

    Just starting this to have a place to post progress.

    Here is the car:


    2000 Pontiac Sunfire 4 door


    Here is the (half ***) computer



    Asus CUV4X socket 370 motherboard Full ATX
    P3 733mhz
    WD 60 gig HD
    Matrox Mystique pci video (4mb card)
    S3 Savage 2000 agp 64mb with tv out (testing only)
    Creative Audigy LS pci
    384 mb PC133 ram
    Toshiba 8x DVD-rom (will be replaced)
    Modded AT Packard Bell case (not sure if this will stay or not)



    Here is the psone vga modded screen running Meedio (still working on this, excuse the Meedio config, not at all finished)



    Just ordered a Pioneer 100w amp, gonna push 2 Jensen 6x9's plus the stock fronts.

    Gonna pick up the 400 Watt Vector Maxx SST inverter next week.

    More to come....

    Shot of the stock bezel, I ordered a new one.


    Pioneer amp has made it in.


    Got the Lucite for the custom face plate for lcd screen, this is pre-cut.


    Rough cut of the faceplate, ill sand it down a bit, still have to cut the actual opening for the lcd, fun...


    Tan no more! Painted using plasticote black satin paint, a bit off from my dark grey interior, but its still better than tan


    Testing out how the faceplate will interface with the bezel.

    Thanx! It's going smoother than I thought. I opted out of cutting a rectangle out in the lucite to let the lcd face come through, and decided to just go ahead and attach the lcd to the plexi, so the plexi can act like a protective cover.

    measured (the best I could, I suck at measuring, btw, I made it off center vertically for a reason) and taped off the middle part for the screen to go through, went in the back yard and sprayed the back of the lucite to give the front a shiny look, just look and see. Oh yea, its not attached to it yet, just holding it up in the bezel.

    Screen is now mounted into the faceplate, and the faceplate is now mounted into the bezel, I ended up using windshield adhesive, man....it is strong, in hold and smell.
