Default A few questions, Need suggestions!

So I am wanting to do a few things to my Bonne, but I am not sure if they will work.
I have a 1993 SSEi, fully loaded and everything but I would like to add a few things.

1. I want to add a trip computer like the ones found in the 1990 Grand Prix Turbos. I have no idea how to do this, but I think it will work. What do you think? As far as mounting goes, I am thinking about tearing out the gain control and cutting a hole there for it. Below is a pic of the Trip I want to put in. Any guidance or tutorials you could offer on this would be much appreciated. Also, I don't have one of these so where might I find one?



2. The guy I bought the car from replaced the factory head unit with a pioneer HU that I am not crazy about so I am wanting to replace this with some other kind of HU, but I would like to utilize my steering wheel controls. Is there any way I can hook up the steering wheel controls to an aftermarket HU?

3. Lastly, I am wanting to redo the suspension in the Bonne to give it a really luxurious ride. Any suggestions on struts or mods I can do to improve this?

Oh by the way, my car has the on car air compressor, is there a specific hose I need for this? Where can I pick one up? Thanks in advance!

You're probably better off breaking your questions out into seperate topics in the proper sections. Otherwise, this topic is going to be a MESS.

Audio and Aftermarket electronics for your trip computer and stereo, and Performance and Brainstorming for your 'luxurious ride' change.

1. i suppose its possible but why?? it would be ALOT of wiring and you already have a compass in the car...i know of one in the junkyard i could get you

2. you can get any HU that has a remote and use the steering wheel controlls....you need a PAC SWI-x to do that

3. If you get new struts make sure they are ELC equipped for the rear ones, and endlinks, im sure the ride of the car will improve

the hose can be made, and a few members on the club here have done so

Let'* discuss these in the proper sections before this becomes a mess of three topics in one.

And Pat, he said LUXURIOUS ride. Not OEM stiff or stiffer.
