    no its not, just the steering wheel from one

    as for taking the screen out of the console, and the console out of the dash, the dash wont allow it. its all part and partial within the dash. So all fab work had to be done in the car with the screen in place :/ not best practice, but came out all ok in the end.

    OK

    Actually I afterwards noticed that the seats don't look very 16V
    I have the the same 16V steering wheel in my dodgy little R5...

    nice job so far can I recommend a DC-DC supply it is so less a pita over using an inverter even if you avoid a flat battery!

    One thing.. can you even get the screen out again? I didn't know you could remove the R19 dash including the surround without getting behind where the screen is now afixed. One of the reasons (aside lazyness!) for the simple install of the LCD in my Laguna is I know I probbaly will have the car PC longer than the car.

    that was a concern of mine when i started. I chose to ignore it lol.

    I COULD take the whole dash out (its one moulded unit), but in all honesty, the car is staying until it dies. and when it does die, ill rip the dash out and cut the screen back out with a trusty dremel. not too big an issue. As for the inverter - i like it. In fact, its a preferred method of power, as it has a low battery cut out. so ill never get a flat. Additionally, I know its gonna have the power to do the job, and I have a switch on the dash to control it

    more pics? coming up!

    and now with the floor in place and with the dash satin flat primered - in the daylight. Oh, and the switch in the dash that used to be the clock - the one thats used to turn the inverter on. Motherboard is set to turn on when ac is recieved.

    Oh yea, and the carpet it gonna be replaced. its the original one from when the car was made 14 years ago! stained and fooked :P

    and the obligatory night shots!

    Dash is gonna get a complete repaint too. If i cant get the paint to match the dash, ill paint the dash to match the paint on the screen.
