    Pics, Pics, Pics!
    I'm definately losing the modular setup at this point...
    which means I'm losing the headunit! Which means I lose AUX in for iPods and Sirius!

    Now I just need to find:
    1.) Replacement cigarrete adapter to my lilliput for cheap
    2.) Replacement 01-04 Bezel
    3.) Replacement Lilliput bezel
    and then I'll be good to go!

    96 cobra project update

    ok....

    some pics ..... some questions.... here we go... this is the fitment test.. i couldnt decide to mod the buttons on the xenarc or not so... ill mod it later if i dont like it... so far so good...



    the epoxy worked great... no i have to add more and sand down...



    ok... guess where this came from... fellow stang..



    here is a video test ... using an old vaio P3 450......



    i taped the screen in position ... then applied the epoxy putty....





    its very easy to work with ... just mix part A with part B equal amounts ... mold with water on your fingers..



    now for a question.... while pulling the mach460 rear speakers and enclosure i found what looks like a line level converter for input... anybody have one of these.. clean install... almost looks factory?



    now to remove the mach460 rear enclosure... you need to remove the amps on each side ... there is a nut under each amp.



    remove the center 4 nuts and then the 1 under each amp. also disconnect the wiring harness to remove from the car. the harness pops out of the mounting tabs.. youll see what i mean..

    ...

    next to test the amps and replace the speakers... if i can get by with the actory amps for a while i will... cash is always low around christmas....

    Man, I remember that mach system, that was a ***** and a half to take out!
    Where did you get the replacement bezel? Cost alot? What do you search for?
    Also, is there any pics of the buttons/switches on it, or better, do you know what type of switches they are?

    Thumbs up more info

    schpanky... i paid 52.00 for my bezel plus 10 bucks for shipping... there is one on ebay at the moment... i usually do a search for mustang bezel and look through the junk.... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMEWA%3AIT

    one thing ... i did have to cut a little more from the original radio mount ... basically because i cut it at an angle i had to go back and cut it even ... this removed more material so the rear of the xenarc bezel would fit. i checked out the trac control switch ... ill post the pin layout later on.... basically its a normaly open momentary switch. contacts for lighting up the symbols.... trac control symbol etc.... and the on led is enabled by the computer it seems.

    used 03 center console (ebay.com)
    used 03 radio bezel (ebay.com)
    pci 802.11G adapter (somewhere)

    good news... it all works... when connected (-sirius on order)....but room for opportunity.... was going to install the carpc in the rear driverside panel in the trunk like squigglyrulz
    did.. but i have a antitheft module in that locataion... so no go.... looking into a false trunk floor or square off one side of the trunk not sure. readin a lot of mp3car.com forums for ideas. also looking at mounting the dvd drive somewhere. sunvisor. make an oldschool overhead console?

    looking at installing two polk momo MM2104 10" subs, polk momo MMC6500 6.5 components up front and infinity 5761a in 3 chan or a Alpine MRP-F450 in 2 chan and a Alpine MRP-M650 mono for subs. any input from you audio guys would be great. yes i am only going with front components and rear subs.

    setting up roadrunner frontend with CFx skin.

    the porpatch didnt turn out like i wanted... the consistancy was more like toothpaste.. and wanted to clump when you smoothed it out.. so i purchased some bondo bumper repair paste epoxy resin to clean things up and smooth it out a bit. then a few hours of sanding and i should be ready for paint i purchased from 5.0 resto.


    long post .... more pics of various stages to come.... any ideas on the amp/pc/dvd drive install hit me up....

    I'm using your method for my dash as well (bought a mach1 dash) and I'm finishing up the fabrication part (lilli's need a bit more TLC), I think I'm further along than you are! lol

    Ran a ton of wires from the battery to the trunk, and tapped the stock wiring harness' ACC line and ran that to the trunk as well for my power supply. I got it mostly working, but I'm waiting for xp embedded for it's EWF and minlogon

    edit: you have a inspiron 9300? I do too!
    Great minds think alike!
