    Re: Toyota 4Runner SQ rebuild - Audible Physics, Zapco, OnCore

    I messed around for a little while today and made a little progress. I don't have a garage so I have to work outside under my carport. Today it is rainy and in the low 50's so a few hours was enough for me.

    The iPad dash kit that I received did not have a mount for the head unit behind. I was using the old head unit mount from my last install which was only using two screws into plastic mounts. It was very secure before since it also screwed into the Scosche dash kit. However, now that it doesn't screw into the iPad dash kit it was very flimsy. I corrected this using some epoxy and connecting the mount to the dash kit. It's nothing pretty but it is now very solid.

    I still have to get the head unit lined up properly then do some trim around the head unit, I'll try to work on that some tomorrow. There is only so much I can do right now so there is no need to get in a hurry.

    Using the mounting cage to get the right spacing for the head unit.


    The sexy white epoxy...


    Nice and secure.



    I'm using barrier strips behind the head unit to hook up all of the accessories. I'm not crimping anything, everything is soldered. So far I wired up the powered USB for the iPad, the steering wheel control adapter, the wifi adapter for the rear camera, and the rear camera.



    I also cleaned up some old wiring from when I used my head unit as the main source. The old connections are embarrassing but they did work. I removed the top hats and the extra speaker wire and soldered the factory wires back together.




    Showing the rear view camera working through the iPad (and/or iPhone) as well as showing the battery is charging. I'm disappointed in the picture quality but it will do the job.

    I could only do ten photos in one reply so this one gets it's own post.. I received a couple hundred feet of Knu OFC speaker wire today.

    Great work and a "do it right first time" approach.

    It's not much but I'm trying to get a little done every day I'm off work. I won't be messing with it again until next Friday so I'll won't be boring you all for a few days.

    It doesn't look like much but I did some trim work around the head unit. I plan to use a little filler in there then flock the area behind the iPad. Here's a before and a couple of after shots. If it weren't for the knob on the Sony this would be easy. I really wish I knew what the hell I was doing.

    Before.



    After.

    I know this stuff is probably pretty boring to most but I'm an amateur so nothing seems easy to me. This is my third weekend working on this dash kit. More abs, some bondo, some glazing putty, then some SEM paint and primer. Tomorrow I plan to flock-it and call it done (hopefully).
