Do let us know the progress on the car PC.

Me in the queue too, me hearties!

Wow, @shldn, this can fool even the designers as an OEM item. You're a magician.

Now, if I can lay my hands on a good deco veneer! I wanted to take a different approach for Safari - replace that God-forsaken plastic monstrosity they call the center console. Acres of space lost by a simple-minded designer.

To reclaim that space, I would need to reposition everything there - I'd rather put the AC controls at the bottom (what were the designers thinking - that we fiddle with the AC controls every 5 minutes?), then the switches above it, then the HU / LCD unit. Who knows, I may be able to put in a 2-DIN HU then, maybe even a pocket for CD covers.

Maybe someone can clarify a doubt if you have noticed it after removing the console facia: is the AC air-direction adjuster coupled to the dampers by a rod or by cables? Can that be shifted at all?

@Steeroid also wants the center-console redo in his Safari, from what he wrote last.

Great job.

I am picking nits here but maybe you should have angled it upwards a bit.

How is the visibility for the driver/front passenger ?

cheers.

Why are all Safari people behind reclaiming their life and other things

Where have you placed the USB from the screen?
