072 Posted November 24, 2006 Share Posted November 24, 2006 Hello all, Before we begin, I started this project about 4 days before the jdm dual HVAC thread started. I already had the circut board cut and there was no turning back. That being said I hope TDC comes through with a real world solution because this was very hard. I do not recommend trying this unless you have done stuff like this before and have the time and patience. I have about 60 hours into the HVAC relocation and avic-z1 install alone. All in all it was a fun project. ENJOY! avic-z1 installed avic-z1 with oem screen I can mirror whatever image is displayed on the z1 to show on the oem screen. As of now I can't show the nav from the z1 on the oem screen while the z1 shows my AV sources, but I,m working on it. Some pics of the circut board cut This is the top half of the circut board wired and mounted in the car. I used cables to link it to the bottom half that is attached to the front trim panel. This is the back of the radio trim with the HVAC controls mounted, wired and ready to plug into the cables in the car I made. I made the mounts out of ABS plastic. All together there were 49 connections between the top and bottom circut boards and 22 more connections that go from the bottom circut board box to the main radio circut board under the drivers seat. This is the main circut board from the oem radio. The 6-disc changer was removed and not used again. The board is mounted in an ABS box using the mounts from my oem nav brain. Along with the 22 connections from the top half of the circut board that is mounted below the z1 I also had to extend and run the rest of the wires that were plugged into the back of the oem radio. More pics coming of back up camera, xm install, and the making of the trim panel. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
