    My new Custom centre console.

    Hi just thought id post some pictures up of my new centre console. Its taken me ages to and it is still far from finished.

    I think it looks fantastic. .







    The only problem is i am absolutly USELESS at wiring. I just cant get it all to work!
    The bottom bit is suppost to have a LCD screen in it but it popped when i tryed to wire it up, and now i cant get the two switches to light up
    And when i attached them to the illumination on the cig lighter they went pop too

    Im so mad with it, i really need some help

    Thanks, Tom.

    No the smaller screen at the bottom is for a reversing camera, the right hand side button turns the the screen and camera on when you want to park.
    The top screen is just a satnav.

    Its a small one i got off ebay with some infa-red leds in it so it works at night (hopefully). Iv put it in the black bit on the rear bumper, right in the middle.

    Switches/LCD may well need fused before connecting up to the lighter live? Just a thought...
