    Is all you're worried about theft? If so, you could always put an lcd in the double-din opening where the head-unit is now, then pull the front "face-plate" part of the stock stereo off and make a fake cover for it, so that it would look completely stock when the cover was in place.

    Thanks a lot for the info, you're my man

    Just tell me as soon as you don't need it anymore

    For the theft thing, yes it's my main concern for the moment. I've thought of putting the LCD where the radio is and putting a "false" radio frontplate over it, but I think I'll keep my stock HU because if I want music right away without starting the car pc, I'll be able to do it.

    I'll test it the way I've thought (doing a home-made in-dash unit in the upper storage box) and I'll post some pictures as soon as the project advance !

    Thanks everybody

    That is a great idea. Do you have suggestions on the working of such a cover? I have an 04 corolla, and an aftermarket HU, My screen is in place of the stock HU, I wanted to sell the stock unit, but If I can rip out the face and do something cool like that with it That would be great, I havent finished my screen fabrication process, but am close.

    the front cover of the stock radio (at least mine '03 model) does come off. It's attached via a ribbon cable. So I actually did think about this for awhile, but the cover is actually about 1/2 - an inch thick.. or not thick, but it wraps around the rest of the radio that much. I guess with a bunch of cutting u, and some pre-thought to the lcd mount, you could make something like that work.

    Nice to see that I'm not the only owner of a Corolla with a computer inside

    Anyone knows where I could get an Aux input for the radio (like the DF-TOY shown above) in Canada ? or anyone selling one ?

    Thanks !

    hey capitainefritz, how far along are you with your subwoofer enclosure?? I think I might try to do that on the same side in my car.
