Hi everyone

This might seem like a weird topic but anyway. Has anyone ever thought up some thing that you think no one has done before. Not like werid things like mount a turbo to your roof lol. But things like built in nav man to e searies or some thing. I just wont food for thought.

Cheers

lol

like built into the dash not just stuck on the window. any way that was just an example, probably a stupid one. Ok mods that to your interior that you can't buy of the shelf, mods you have to make and use a bit of imagination.

cheers

You mean something along the lines of, 7" touchscreen built in to the centre console, where the radio sits

This will be hooked up to a mini ITX computer and run music, video, internet, GPS if needed, and the Engine management software.

Yours is just to swap the arms over is it? There are others who have done similar, but I haven't seen to the extend I've gone (normally because most don't like factory EF/EL onwards wheels and you can't run a aftermarket wheel as there is no boss, or so I'm led to believe, the factory momo's are good enough for me though)...

I'll tell you what I do like though Troy is the USB socket position... Thats a ripper... Never though of that...

Cheers,
Tim
