I have finally decided to change heat panel that i prepared earlier. Did some modifications and added more white LEDs. Mounted vectra b steering wheel coil, white LEDs in steering wheel wired remote and changed smd resistors with ones that pioneer units recognize.

I was testing spare CarPC using HDMI on Pioneer AppRadio, turned out to be fully functional! I cant use touch input until i disassemble the pioneer unit, and try some stuff, so ive bought armrest to fit 3D SpaceNavigator with commands i programmed years ago.

Testing the PC
ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Modifying teh armrest

ImageImageImage

Old plexiglass holder

ImageImageImage

Beta version

ImageImageImageImageImage

More armrest mods, it has 7USB ports for charging sharing ONLY 1A. Ive got some 12v 2x2.1A usb charger. Changed SpaceMouse holder angle and painted it black.

ImageImageImageImageImage

Hidding screws and cables

ImageImageImageImage

Now we have armrest with 3 front USBs, 4back USBs sharing 2.1A. Other 2.1A port is located inside the armrest, and another USB connected to the PC.

ImageImage

Final position of the armrest, its retractable so it has 2 levels of height.

ImageImageImage

Ima swap these leds to white ones, one day :). CarPC will be located in the trunk.

Image

Finally removed hood vynil. Got so many new and old scratches so i decided to fill em all :).

ImageImageImageImage
ImageImageImageImage

Filling

ImageImageImageImage

In the end 3 layers of black spray filler and soon ima wrap it in one shiny color, probably glossy black, simple and clean.

ImageImageImageImage

Before wrapping it, ima put LE front bumper :)

More armest modifications, screws are well hidden, so only option was to screw center console from underneath the car. Also moved Ipod/iPhone connector for AppRadio

ImageImageImageImageImage

Then fitting the LE bumper :)

ImageImage

Had to cut it a bit and now its symmetrical

ImageImageImageImageImage

Fits perfeclty, i plan on putting 63mm polished FMIC pipes in the future.

ImageImageImageImage
ImageImageImageImage

Preparing and glueing rear skirt by MyDesign*****

ImageImageImage

Wrapping with cheapest black gloss wrap :) not so shiney but will do the job for short term use, better then my old damaged paintjob for sure.

Image Image Image Image

Image Image Image Image

Image Image


I almost went for this color

Image Image

But its gonna be different, nothing special but i never seen it on a calibra...

Thanks guys!1!!

Finished side trims and i sanded edges of this lip. CarPC is mounted in trunk now, i just need to redo the carpeting :)



ImageImage

Image Image Image Image

host images

Lip has 3m doubleside tape so its easily removable if it gets bored

Had some troubles with radiator hose, it was my mistake because i had to cut it and then it was wide to fit on radiator, put narrower one first, it held for about 500km, then i oredered new one.

This was my fix, silly me...
Image

Spark plug cap came back, powdercoated in red, have to sand and polish the fonts. I need to order red silicone hoses but i never get to it...

Thanks Bandit :)

Ive been traveling a lot last 20 days, in the end of my trip ive got small hole on one of the turbo coolant hoses. Not a big problem, i got home and had to remove the turbo. Made new hoses, this ones gonna last a loootttttt...

Image ImageImage

It was running high temp with 4 persons, ac and luggage so i went back to factory radiator, XE chinese one was not so nice. Did some cutting on the bumper, sponge and shim, now FMIC has more air. It was rought cut, bumper needs a rework, number plate will stay in the middle but i might move it to the left and get more air trough fmic n stuff...
.

Image Image ImageImage Image

Finaly got 55mm rubber hose to remove those narrowings ive had to the tophat. Temperature is fine now but didnt have rough contitions, driving up the mountain with 4 peaople in the car, with ac on summer 40degrees day :). Also got new coolant bottle.

Image Image Image Image

Changed water bar with metal one but have no pictures, money well spent since it failed few times on my last calibra...

This is how it looks fully loaded without me in the car, low and not slow :)
