UPDATE 11/12/05
I am currently doing the flushmount with the new lcd bezel. it is drying from painting. after it dries, i'll be installing the touchscreen into the new bezel then fitting it into the dash. I'll have pics up hopefully sometime soon! but heres a little teaser of the bezel i'm using ;)

all interior lights/led's finally finished in red!! (need to get civic or prelude needles i know!! :)) You can also see the nav running on my carPC


carPC screen just sitting in there at the main menu i designed. Fully functional w GPS (above), etc... flushmount next week!








intake i installed a few days ago... just a little over 30k on the motor










Whatcha think? :p

Will you take a near-new '04 TSX straight across in trade? <LOL> God, I miss having a Legend.

yo that thing is serious man, i love the red details, and the carpc, and how does ur engine only have 30k on it, looks like it just came off the showroom
the motor was fully rebuilt block up with all OEM parts. everything new. all the mounts, cv's, waterpump, every single thing was changed out. PS... i treat this car as if it were a small child :D

Looks great! I think you and I need to meet - I'd love to see your car in person.
I'm up for a meet sometime if we get more than just a few people from springfield and stl. nobody else really that close to us except for like... tulsa and kansas city. we'll figure something out eventually.

So awsome Shaar! I really want to make this my next project. :bowdown:

how long did it take you to set-up? (not install in your console)
after the software and hardware build was done (in the house), it took me about 2-3 hours to wire and set up the gps and calibrate the touchscreen. pretty easy :eek:

thank you all for the positive comments. next i'm hoping for a drop and some hid's. interior is done aside from the flushmount of the touchscreen next week. also considering some s2000 sidemarkers with amber bulbs. thinking that would be a movement in the right direction.

Looks damn nice, wanna share how you did the LED interior? Mainly which LED's and resistors
hmm. the leds i used were just 3mm red 5000mcd led's. the resistors came with the 100 led's i ordered so i'm not sure exactly what they were, but from my calculations, they should be 820 ohm resistors. Remember, if you're putting the led's in a series, you will need less resistance or your leds will be dim. if you're keeping them single, the 820 ohm resistors will be perfect. The gauges i just switched out the 4 bulbs to red 194's. the gear indicator in the cluster i changed it all to red along with the turn signals and cruise control. for those you will have to take the cluster apart and remove the colored plastic in front of each indicator you want to change, trace the little square out onto a clear folder of your choice (pick your colors) and cut 3 for each indicator followed by the same size/shape piece of plain paper to flatten out the light and prevent it from looking cheap and hot spotty.

if that doesn't help out, let me know i'll try my best to give back to the community!
