Ive been working on this for two days now and should have it all re-assembled by tomorrow... only leaving the cosmetics to be worked out.
The dash decently torn down with the slot load DVD hiding out in the dash for sizing:
Assembling the 'center console' that will go under the dash to allow me more room for STUFF. It fits GREAT almost factory but I didnt get a pic of it in the car before i had to set it out to let the glue dry.
A more finished console with the A/c controls and radio chassis in. It will get a grey trim bezel and eventually covered in maroon vinyl to match dash.
A new location for my ham radio head unit... i am seriously reconsidering this location, but as it is 3 am i will look into it with a clear mind tomorrow.
My friends foot... and the final location of the screen. The slot load DVD drive will go below it and obviously the dash bezel will be modified to look good and fit this setup.
A picture of the touchscreen being bench tested with the new software im going to run. I will have bluetooth to answer phone calls without getting out the phone, GPS, Music, OBD 1.5, WiFi for internet weather and gas station prices, DVD, eventually HD radio, and eventually surround sound.
