Was there a reason to get that instead of a aftermarket stereo that already had ipod hook up?



I was wondering the same. You can easily get an aftermarket headunit (in the mid $100 range, Alpine or Sony) with Ipod connection. Plus you have added space for gauges etc. Simplify your life, Josh! :)

I might do that. Anyone want to buy a scion radio?

I am running out of time and I want to simplify my project.

So one dor is done. Speaking of keeping things simple, I should have not gotten the kickers due to having to cut metal on the door too, but its done. At least one side. I need to cut the metal on the other side and I can put the other door on. Through all this car has been through I am surprised how good shape the door cars still are. I still need to clean them up some, and I need to find all the screws for them but they are not bad for almost 20 years old and the life they lead. Here is a comparison of the old and new speakers as well. Once the doors are done I will start organizing dash wires and then radio stuff.

Speakers are now installed. I need to get some screws ordered for the panels and then they are done. I have sort of messed with the A/C some with no avail. I also painted some interior pieces. I got the paint from this thread. I then sanded the scraped and gouges with some 400 grit then moved up till I was at 2500 grit. Some of the scratches are still visible but this was a much cheaper option than buying a new glove box.

Here are before and afters. I also did the center plastic section. I am saving the rest for my gauge pod and if there is any left over I will do my kick plates.

Now I need to decide where my boost controller will mount and work on my gauge pod so I can wire up my gauges.

I love what you did to the glove box. Looks great! You've been my motivation for my project lately. I'm stripping the interior for a color change soon, so I will get some of these panels retouched. Did you get if from SEM online? I got some SEM products at my local paint shop/supply store (for another project).

I will see if they have it locally. I will take pics of where I placed my Boost Controller. What type of BC do you have? I have an HKS unit. I've been considering going AEM Tru-Boost lately for my ST185 (reduce the amount of gauges, clear things up a bit), then use the HKS for the up and coming ST165 (yes, another one)..( :evil: ).

If you don't mind, I will post pics to give you ideas, if needed.

Nah, I got them from vinyl pro. The link is in the post. A member got them to color match shadow gray interior. Its pretty spot on.
Yeah post pics for boost controller mounting. I am thinking I am going to use the pocket for the din and rig something that hides it. not sure yet. I have a pocket with a door too, but I don't think it will fit once the radio goes in.

This member had a good idea.

Today's project was to clean up and paint my new gauge pod. I bought it mostly done. I used some glazing bondo to fill in any cracks or dips then primed and painted it to match the interior. It does not have the texture of the bottom piece but it looks close enough. Tomorrow I will wire up the gauges and try and finish the under dash stuff less the radio.

Test fitting the gauge pod. I had to remove a little more material so the boost gauge can sit flush. Once it dries I will be installing it for good.
I may do the clutch slave tomorrow as long as I figure out how to fill the fluid. I am guessing it uses the tranny fluid, and I just bleed it?
Once this goes in, all the wiring goes with it. I need to setup a bracket for my power distribution block and then I can wrap all the wiring up. I am thinking of just installing the boost controller in the glove box. It will be out of the way and out of sight.

I like the gauge pod. Looks great! Come to think of it, my boost controller is located below the dash/below steering column (above my right leg, when driving). Still want the pics? I want to go your route and hide it as well. You could always go with the AEM Tru-Boost EBC, that doubles as a boost gauge to minimize having too many electronics, and replace your boost gauge (I may do that in the future). (I also want to get rid of the gauges on the pillar. Not my doing, but they have to go).

I wish they still sold these (Did they even make them for the Alltracs?) :

You can make your own with sheetmetal or whatever material you feel would work for you, and wrap it in vinyl or paint it black (gloss or wrinkle finish).

I want to keep my glove box for use so if I put mine in there it will likely be in a small container mounted inside there. I would hate for something stored in there to knock it. I used to keep my disc changer in my glove box. I would not mind seeing what you got. It might be more ideal to mount it under the dash somewhere. I have a turbo timer mounted underneath my steering wheel. I wonder if there is a brand of switches that fits the oem switch spots on the left side of the dash.

EDIT: I wonder if the clock placement would be a good place for it. I am also sort of leaning towards taking my lower din pocket and making a compartment inside of it for the boost controller.

Here are some interior shots of the HKS EVC placement. I'm looking to move it sometime or getting the AEM Tru-Boost Ebc, once the interior is stripped then put back together. No time lately. The interior is overdue for redo.

Thanks, but my legs will hit it there. I think I might be onto something with the pocket. I just got to get my radio ordered and go from there.
