If you're going to do it this summer, watch the soundman channel. There's a lot of hints. They were the first ones to globally show off the first ipad install in a vehicle. They document a LOT of the beginnings of their iPad installations. They show you how they made their iPad pans, different types of installs, wiring options, and I'm talking at least 100s of videos on their channel. It'll give you such an education on what you're walking into. I'd start exploring that channel now if you want all the info by the summer!
Thanks, i will. Im new to model making and prototyping. just 2 years under my belt so this will help me avoid rookie mistakes. Thanks.
It's looking great! It would be neat if you could put some kind of adapter that changes the angle of the camera so that you can facetime with people. Not sure if it would be the safest feature but at the minimum people could see you while you talk to them haha. I think I've seen something like this done before through soundman but I'm not sure.
I was wondering if the owner of the is was on here. Glad to see it coming together. I ordered a ipad mini pan from soundman and will be doing mine shortly
I'm retaining my factory amp and besides having the CD changer issue .. I'm learning a LOT about the workings of our specific vehicle's audio and HVAC system lol. If you're not retaining the factory amp, it's still a mess lol
Regarding updates, Rafa texted me earlier stating that the panel is back from the body shop. He forgot to snap some pics, he'll do so when he gets back in the shop and I'll gladly post them here when I receive them!
Life for everybody involved got busy. The panel just got back from the body shop. And as Doug would say ... "HOT DAMN IT LOOKS NICE!!!" The color match to the buttons is perfect from the looks of it. I'm in AWE.
Subscribed. I'm sold by the concept. If you make this happen, you gonna make big money lol.
It's hardly me making the money. It's all Rafa and Doug from Soundman Car Audio making the loot. I guess I'm trying to be proof of concept? lol

I didn't upgrade my interior speakers yet (The stock system isn't too shabby .. but I want to do a full focal system eventually, so for now I'm running off the factory amp). My subs however are some seriously old school Orion XTR 10's running off a JL audio mono block amp. The subs are fairly old, but they sound nice. The subs are in a box custom made for the sidewall of the trunk (I needed the trunk space as I DJ and fill the trunk for gigs every weekend) lol
