After searching for this modification everywhere I decided to take matters into my own hands. This is what I will be offering to the EvoM community.. I want to see who would be interested. My Kit is geared towards the Car PC enthusiast. Please Note another Member by the name of SpoolingEvoX has a similar Kit I am simply offering a cheaper alternative for members.
1. This kit was hand manufactured and will be molded so I can keep costs down since I'm manufacturing them myself.
2. This kit allows you to keep all the electronic controls intact such as the HVAC. Once great feature about doing things is that you will save $$$ on installation or conversion to the HVAC that EvoX is offering. AND best of all you get to keep the MAX A/C feature
that is not offered on the EvoX Kit.
3. I also work with A Body/Paint specialist so I will be offering these kits in so far 2 colors, FlatBlack and / Silver. I guess we can do other colors but that's all I thought about for now.
4. The COST
to produce these are going to be much lower. I don't know exactly how much so far but only 2 plastic parts are needed, the double din and the bottom HVAC Cubby conversion. All other electronics are OEM.
Here are pics below.
Please Note: My own project isn't finished yet, so the color matching is off. The bottom cubby is shiny black because it will make it easier to mold off of once it's done. Not to mention I need to get these painted so I didn't put it all quite together yet.
One thing to note, the above picture of the 2-DIN is actually a Evo 9 Din, and I modified it to now include the CLIPS ON THE BACK OF IT. So it simply snaps into place. I will need to mold this as well. Also The Screen on my personal PC project includes a screw that makes this screen removable in case it ever breaks. As posted as a link on the beggining pages of this thread my Project has always been a Car PC so if the screen is off it's because the PC in the glove box is not there yet.
Any questions.. PM or respond here.. Enjoy
One more thing I don't mean any disrespect To Spooling Evo, His kit is just as nice, he just took another direction. I personally would have atleast liked to order his 2-DIN from him instead of creating my own but now that I think of it, I like the texture on this double din as it's more OEM than the scaly one that he has.
I'd also like a list created for how many people would like my "Jedi 2-Din/Cubby Kit"
One Last Question- I have a Silver Evo do you think I should paint the already semi-silver dash pieces to match the Evo 9 2-Din including the Cubby or should I keep it Straight Black.. I'm having a hard time deciding. At the same time I don't want it to look too Ricey.
