    Basild's Progress pics

    Well as some of you may know I have been away for a while, so the ICE build was put on hold till I got back. Anyways I got back over the Easter weekend and decided it was time to put the things that I had finished into the car. So here are some of the progress pics.......




    My new cradle for my phone. Control (answering, phonebook, SMS etc) and display is via the Comand Headunit and the steering wheel controls





    The custom made rear view mirror with 2" TFT monitor hooked up to the rearview camera mounted in the bumper.


    I will upload 1 more tomorrow as it was a bit dark an it would not come out properly.

    How cool is that. I want one of those little camera and screen things.... but I'll keep my bedroom stories to myself

    Anyway, back to subject, have you got any pics of where the camera is mounted - would be interesting to see how you did it.

    It is but not quite standard it has been modified to work with my Comand.

    Brett the boot is coming along nicely. I trial fitted the Subwoofer enclosure the same weekend. I am still undecided between painting or leather but will try both as I have the leather. I just need to finish the new amp rack.

    Steve the camera is mounted on the rear bumper and it switches on when I select reverse along with the Screen.

    I thought about mounting a phone kit cradle into the arm rest like that but obviously not to the extent you have gone Basil with linking it to everything else. I am very impressed
    And that rear view mirror, you gonna make some up on a group buy basis ?
