That is so weird.. To think that you're allowed to not have a front plate!?!?!

No I saw it there, I'm sure.

I've been wanting to do something similar to this, actually in an older benz (a W124, for those who know what that is) that integrates the sound, climate control, and other functions of vehicle into a touchscreen interface in the center console. Basically, do away with all the knobs and make a nice wood console panel, maybe stain it a transparent sapphire blue while I'm at it.

Nah, deflector stays, it was hard enough to get it on and it comes in very hand.  I can't count the number of rocks I've seen bounce off of it and just over my windshield without cracking it.

 

Lowering the is also not an option, this is also my everyday driver and I already bottom out on camp roads as it is.

 

And can't remove the plates, that would be illegal.

 

Thanks, I can't wait to eventually upgrade it and sleeve all the cables.

We have front and back, same color with the provinve printed on it.  We have a law on my province at least where on cars and vans, you need to place your yearly sticker on the back plate, while on trucks, you place it on the front plate.

That sounds like a pretty amazing project, you should start on it now :D

I would! But I don't have a W124 of any flavor. I have a W126 S-Class sedan, that needs some engine work *sigh*

I actually thought of using an iPad as the center console (creating an app with Objective-C that would allow me to manipulate those various functions (some of which are vacuum controlled). However, it might be easier working with Windows-based micro-computer, as I think getting it to talk to the other electronics would be much more simple.

If only I had the time!! Grr! I've talked to others locally about trying something like this, and I don't get much an energetic response. mad.gif

Like I said, if I had the time, I'd like to do it! But I'll need help from a more experienced coder.

Thread Starter 

So went to my first stereo competition ever.  Luckily I did a little reading last night and wasn't completely un-prepared.  In the "Loudest System" competition, I was entered in to the single amp amateur sedan/coupe division.  I managed to place 3rd out of 10 participants.

 

There were people pushing 600 W to two subs and I managed to take them with my puny 10" on a single 350 W amp.  I peaked at 135.1 db on a 45 Hz test tone.

 

I'm sure I can squeeze way more out with some actual dedicated tweaking, but everything was done on the fly today.  It was nice to see the face on people who could barely touch 134 db and had been in a couple competitions already when I told them I was only running a single 10".

 

 

Stella's temporary bumper fix till the spring when I get a new bumper (JB-Weld)

 

 

 

All cleaned up and waxed for the car show

Trunk emptied out aside form the sub
