Tight. I saw this custom PS2 system and somehow he got the control plugins to be where the window switches are. IT was tight.

Here's something to try... only with an xbox though. This won't work with a PS2 or other game systems.

With an XBOX you can disassemble the Xbox and mount the places in different areas. To throw an example out there, you can actually mount the cd tray under a one din head unit or in the dash somewhere while the brains are stored away in, let's say the glove compartment. I told some friends about that and they did a custom mount in the dash of his RSX.

wow, i wish i had the money to do all these things myself...

i wanted to do a PS2 as the brain while having a plain screen on my center console. like kdawg's, without the cd player in the compartment there. the CD would play directly from the PS2, along with DVD's and games. but...i need the money for a screen first, along with money to install it because i have no clue whatsoever on electronics and cars, haha! too scared to screw up my car even more...ended up installing a Pionner DEH-8500MP instead! good enuff, can't play games or watch movies while driving anyways, haha!

o yea, awesome job with the XBox, looks great even without the fibreglass. and good job to kdawg once again for his unique idea!

yes its tru but you have to be careful of length and makin sure to use the correct cable cause if to long or wrong size cable it takes forever to read and the system goes into error and throws out a code to ya
been there done that on my friends car what a nightmare but when i was done lookd so nice!


nice work jd!

all you need are brackets, super adhesive glue, bolts and nuts, simple imstallation as long as you plan it good, the passenger sits comfortably, i agree the XBOX is big but all the work done was worth it thumbsup
