Final Installation

It's done! After several months of abuse to the schedule it is all in the truck (hopefully) for the last time. I believe I have addressed my cooling problem with the addition of a rather large fan to the enclosure. I have added the storage openings so that I gain some utility out of the back. I added a ton of padding to keep the edges from scratching and squeaking. Done! Well, this generation anyway.

What's next? Lots of software tweaks. I have not found a skin that I am totally happy with just yet so I either need to tweak the one I have or build a new one. I also want to add a skin to the GPS application to fully integrate it from an appearance perspective. And there is the issue of the MP3 collection. I want to clean up what I have and then be able to update it more easily than now. Ideally I would like to download Podcasts in the mornings before I leave for work. But I don't have a plan for that just yet. And then of course there's the issue of satellite radio. I have some questions but it seems very possible.

But first, I have some repairs to accomplish. The factory piece around the A/C and radio it missing some paint. Due to the hurricane getting warranty work done is nearly impossible so I don't know when this will happen. Also, I discovered an issue with the weather stripping on my tonneau cover. I really need to fix that.

Here is the console installation after the final coat of paint and tweaking.

Complete with custom doors to provide extra storage.
