A few minutes ago I washed my car and clean the interior.Took some pictures of the work under sunlight.(However the weather is a little cloudy!)<p>The daylight pictures will give much more idea rather than the night pictures.<p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/8099/p61007093gj.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/3065/p61007101md.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/3259/p61007125nq.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/3980/p61007158sp.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/6715/p61007202px.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/4674/p61007219ru.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/9200/p61007236fz.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/92/p61007288qp.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/4055/p61007292wf.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/6659/p61007310wn.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><br>

Re: Daylight updated pictures of my custom gauge pod and audio installation. (xenophobic)

Again, you did an excellent job.<br>Personally, I would have done the pod a bit differently but hey it's your car and the work sees first rate <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Daylight updated pictures of my custom gauge pod and audio installation. (xenophobic)

Looks great, very well done!!!!<p>I have q quick question though, were you able to wire the gauges so that they dim with the factory gauges??? If so where and how did you wire it?<p>I have the same guage and am going to hook it up today or tommorrow. THnaks<p>Kevin

I agree. Now maybe there will be a Takspeed - Turkish connection. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Hi Alt R)

Nice job Xeno. <p>I'd re-mount the gauges in the pod so that they're vertical (not parallel with the base of the pod which is not flat) but otherwise spectacular. <p>The melted plastic trick is outstanding. How did you do that?!?!<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I'm very impressed. The appearance looks great . . . almost what Volvo would have done from the factory (if they'd had the foresight to think of it).

Once again, great ingenuity and excellent use of that space on the dash. Did you still retain the center channel or simply remove it?

Looks great, best pod I've seen. Not doable for those with nav, but oh well. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Like others, I'd make gauges parallel with ground.<p>Do you still have a center channel speaker?
