Been a while since I was last on here and this new section been added so thought I would post pictures/specs up of my recently finished install in my Mini.

The dash is fully custom made by myself and made in 3 piece's in total, the middle section is a box sat around the weber box and held in place by the 2 side piece which attach as do many aftermarket dashes.

System Spec
Kenwood KDC W7537U I-Pod HU
Vibe Space 5 Component Speakers (crossovers fitted onto back of the dash)
Vibe Slick 6x9's
Pioneer 12" 1200Watt Sub
Vibe Blackbox 2 Amp
Sony Xplod XM-D500X Amp
1.0 Farad Power Cap

looks cool dude. i like your layout, keeping the speedo as the only thing in the centre with the headunit on the passenger side balances the dash really well. :wub:

Thanks very much mate, I like it too, just gotta wait to be able to buy my new oil and volt gauge which I've gotta get from the USA and they will be fitted in the centre section also.

Just thought I would add to this, went to Trax at Silverstone today and got my sound pressure levels measured, it came out as 132.5dB not bad considering it's my first proper install :)

Looks very smart, I do beleive that's the digital gauge that i'v had my eyes on.

Did you have any troubles wiring it up or is it as straight forward as i'd like it to be?

Nope not at all, thought it was going to be a bit less than that but managed to squeeze a little more outta it.

It's from digital speedo's, the site is found Here

Thanks very much indeed >_<

Nope fairly straight forward to be honest, just sat down with a wiring diagram and labelled all the wire's on the cars wiring loom up and then it was simply a case of soldering the connections to the tail loom which came supplied along with the clock.

I love the speakers mounted on the sides of the dash where the vents are normally!
