Hey Austrian Import...this is from our friend of mutual interest email:

"I have the entire Solstice suspension but I do not have the most important component.....Mounting Dimentions.

I would love to start on this project again, but I scraped the rear end cutaway I was using for fitment.
If you could help me find the mounting points dimensions, I could be much for usfull to your research. Several people on PFF have or has had a KAPA but have not responded to my requests for pictures of the mounting points and or measurements."

Here is the response I just emailed him:

I will have these measurements come COB tomorrow and will be sharing them

Ran into a clearance issue with the steering support frame in the area marked with blue tape. The stereo/nav unit is 6.5" deep and the upper left corner was hitting the frame which was interfering by 3/4".



Rather than cut a notch in the frame & weld back in a patch...I'm sure you guys would rather not deal with that.... the center stack was moved back by 3/8" and the stereo spaced out by another 3/8". For another 1/8"-1/4" more room a small area in the corner of the support frame will need to be hammered in with a mallet.

Center stack moved back by 3/8" with 3/8" stereo spacer.

Rob,

You might want to consider what I am doing. I purchased a Galaxy Tab Plus off craigslist for $100.00...going to mount it with ears on the back side of the dash...slide in... permanent power hookup...since I will be driving mostly everyday and the tablet has some absurd standby time...will use mini head-jack to race to feed to amplifier that can me place where ever you want. It gives a real radio tuner, HD tuner, Internet Streams (all the Internet)...with 3G or 4G wifi. I have a free 4g usb stick I get from work....but clear offers $45 unlimited a month with 3g/4g usb stick...then marry that with a inexpensive tp-link mobile router ($45)...Galaxy Tab connects to mobile TP-Link router via Wi-Fi...when you power on the car and you a fully empower multimedia/communication's center to the inter...can even show you have to install and SIP softphone on the tablet and have a free GV number for your car...even forwards to your cell number when not in the car.

Just a thought

Love the progress. Would love to see more pictures.

I'm a bit confused about your post on "moving back" the center console. Which way is "back" towards the cabin center, or towards the front of the car?
Also it looks like the center console sits about as high vertically as the stock shifter surround. I thought you were going to move it lower to reduce some of the perceived bulk.

So far I love the Double DIN surround. I'm a bit confused about the black plastic plate surrounding it. Is it just temporary, or will it be a flat piece there?

I've been looking for momentary on - off - on paddle switches. I found a few, but none that are more reminiscent of the Gallardo style paddles. (or the MINI Cooper S paddles.)

I too like the idea of using an Android tablet PC. It's great that your dash allows for unlimited customization. Maybe, if you have time, to satisfy the curiosity of some posters you could measure out popular tablet sizes on cardboard/card stock, so people can visualize tablets in the center console and/or as a replacement for the stock gauges.

TXOPIE,

No offense but could you cut back on posting all that stuff in this thread? Just seems to be cluttering up the actual build that's taking place. Maybe start your own thread for what you want to do with your own car or PM him. Just a thought.

Continuing the G1 dash model build.

Rally gauge mock up with simulated carbon fiber vinyl wrap. Waiting on delivery of digital rally gauges from : http://www.tomsdigitalelectronics.com/




Center section mock up with a Solstice air vent which costs a little more than the G6 vent, but it's a flush fit & easier to install. Waiting on delivery of Carlingtech switch panel.

My apologies...I meant no disrespect to anyone. I was sharing my thoughts and Ideas on this build because it is featuring Rob's new G1 dash...which I personally requested for him to create. And I thought this was all about sharing ideas to help and inspire and get feedback from each other...sorry about the confusion.

Just received the digital mini gauges from : http://www.tomsdigitalelectronics.com/

This will be used in my Formula F6 widetrack project car.



The Formula was re-wired before for VDO gauges. Now, I have to create new quick disconnect plugs for the factory instrument cluster...which I never thought that i'd use again...it's a good thing that I kept the old plugs.

Got the blue mini gauges. I prefer the stock analog type for the tach & speedo. Having a problem with the temp gauge, however...it's not working properly. It only displays 80 or 255 .

Might seem stupid, but are you sure you hooked it up to the correct wire from the sending unit. It sounds like you might have it wired up to the idiot light wire

That happened to me before when I installed the Fi355 interior...wires were crossed on the sending unit connector.

The temp gauge does work now. It started working after I removed & re-installed the gauges, and disconnected/re-connected the plugs. It must have been a loose connection/ poor contact.

These digital gauges from Tomsdigitalelectronics are pretty cool.

It wouldn't fit as is because the bezel is 1 15/16" tall. For 2 1/16" round gauges an new bezel 1/4" taller would be needed and the hood raised by the same amount.

Those look like large Autometer gauges which will need an even larger bezel, or go with an external gauge setup.

Don't know. I'm only concerned with the Fiero cluster.

Like I said before, this is a do-it-yourself dash kit. You guys can stuff in whatever kind of gauge cluster your heart desires on your end. When I'm done designing this dash...I am done, done, done, and moving on to my F6 Formula project.

I think he knows that they're temporary. He was just confused how they will disappear in the final version. (As in, which solution Amida had planned.)
