    Although nothing via Eastwood was used in this project, i still had a blast making it and it might be beneficial to some out there

    Something ive been playing with these last couple days, saw it on youtube (Soundmancaraudio.com) and thought it looked pretty **** cool!

    If i could go back and do it again i would definitely take my time on the pre painting prep… I wanted to get the paint on it last night so i rushed, it doesn’t look perfect, but this is something i can go back and fix at any time… just dont have the time now!

    List of parts and cost
    32gb wifi +3g iPad – $300 (buy em now, guys are selling 1st gens for cheap)
    90deg 30 pin adapter – $60+shipping (http://www.soundmanca.com/product_info.php?cPath=47&products_id=124)
    iStreamer DAC – $200+shipping (http://www.soundmanca.com/product_info.php?cPath=47&products_id=152)
    Scrap wood found in garage from previous owners – FREE!
    Fiberglass and Resin (i have yards of this stuff) – say $5
    Bondo (who doesnt have a can in their garage) – say $5
    4 channel amp – Picked up from Roger at $30
    Wiring for speakers/amp- $30

    if thats everything than thats a total of $630… not bad at all considering the dash to put an aftermarket DD into the 5.0 is ~$400 alone, add that to the cost of your average DD (about $800) which doesnt do half the things this can… id say i came out pretty good in the end

    now some photos! CLICK HERE FOR THE WHOLE SET

    This is the only portion of the factory faceplate i needed to keep
