    So... where are the pics? I've got everything I need for my install. Just waiting for my buddy to get home from vacation so I can borrow his garage for a while. Until then I've been trying to find other people's completed projects. What you've posted does look really good though.

    if i could do it over again, and i think i might, i would get an aftermarket stereo kit for the lower console and install an aftermarket stereo there. i would then get an aftermarket stereo kit for the upper console (~ $200) and fab the screen in up there, recessed to avoid glare. her car doesn't have dual climate control so i wouldn't be losing any functionality by replacing the stock hu. it would be expensive though.
    hey what front end did you use?

    Thanks

    been a while

    this is whats done so far...






    The box i made for the computer in the trunk is missing the plexiglass cover under the hole as well as the LEDs which i am wiring now.

    The bezel for the screen was ruined by a mechanic at the dealership and they refuse to take responsibility so now the new work in progress is making another screen bezel...

    Components are still pretty much the same
    Opus 150W PSU
    Lilliput 7'' WS-TS
    Centrafuse front end
    ATX MB with an AMD 2700+
    512MB RAM
    POS soundcard for the subs and audio
    Soundgate for stock headunit integration
    i forget the name of the USB GPS unit
    Gyration Keyboard and Mouse
    and thats pretty much it for now...

    ill update with new pics when the computer case is finally finished the leds are wired and the screen bezel is finished.

    Hope you enjoy!

    You probably already saw it, but heres what I did

    2006 Accord Sedan - New Dads Car

    If you dont want to refab and you can stand the cost. Doesnt look as integrated as yours, but doesnt look as bubbly either.

    You might think about switching out your shifter for the 06+ one too. Might not block so much.

    The screen actually looks much better in person than it does in that picture.

    The shifter problem is something ive been looking at for a while and i found a DIY for shortening the shifter to almost flush with the plastic boot so ill be doing that as soon as i can find someone to borrow a pipe cutter from.

    install looks great

    Hey, I was just looking through your photos and was wondering: where did you get your woodgrain dash trim? Ive seen a few different options but yours looks great, and Id love to get some input from someone who's installed it before.

    Also, I was looking at doing exactly what you've done, except I was a little curious. Do you (or does anyone else on this thread) know of a way to put a screen down where you have while mantaining the stock flipdown cover?
    (I assume youd have to use a smaller screen if it is possible in the first place.)
