    about a month ago i brought a 7" double din touchscreen unit from the manifacture. amasingly the colour coded wires fit the ones i have so it was simple to install. just wire stripped and taped up, simple.

    i had to remove the casset holder unit below radio to make the double din unit fit. fits perfectly fine. had to custom make brass arms to screw the unit in tight, so thefts will have an extreme hard time in pulling it out.hopefully it wont ever happen (knock on wood).

    this is the final product of my handy work.

    Radio,mp3,dvd,digital tv, gps, other stuff. plus programable car logo

    going further back when i decided to paint the v/c on the engine. which turned out really good i loved my work.
    about two weeks later the diff blew, 800 dollars later a secondhand non reconditioned gearbox was installed.
    i drove it home from the workshop and open the bonnet, by this time the thermo fans kick in and everyone in my family hear the familure noise and welcome back the car.

    from looking at the pictures u can tell how i felt, yes happy i got my car back but....

    edit: thanks guys.

    ooohh, pretty. Does the bonnet close? There have been some issues with the whiteline braces previously.

    i havent posted much so some more info on head unit. recently i found that the sd card from my new head unit was actually the gps card, (idiot) so now i have gps.it has as two standard gps software of your choice, either tom tom 6 or Go8 with the whole australia map loaded and ready to go.

    down side is the lcd screen has no "night mode" (which i tried to fix with a switch, didnt work) so for less light to be in ur face at night you need to go to the gps, which is not actually a problem because i need the speedo on it most the time. also i discovered it has pic in pic so i can change radio station without losing the gps.

    since i got my dad to buy a switch for my car but now dont need it, ive decided to get fog lights for my car, just so i dont waste the switch and i also want fog lights so if any one finds a pair for sale can u please give me a heads up im looking for S1 fog lights.

    cheers

    from the wire diagram in the book it doesnt tell you. the book isnt much help, but i can listen to my spare sd card , usb or radio while gps is going (so far ive found out).
    basicly the book says wat i has where it is and somethings u can do but limited amount of info. its all about discovering something new while driving " oooo picture in picture" before u hit a tree. lol i guess its while its cheap, buy wat u pay for.
