Importsnrice VAFC Setup

VAFC Bought - 06/06/08

VAFC Paint and Fab work - 06/08/08 all in a days work

My plan is to mount the VAFC behind the tinted piece on the dash; However, I don't want to hide my clock and move the whole gas/temp unit over. So what I did was cut into the plastic of the tinted piece so there would be a place just for the VAFC.

Tracing:


Scoring w/ utility knife:


Results:




^This was done on my old Tinted piece so I can get practice so it isnt perfect but I'm working on the real piece right now and its going to be 10x better.

Real Piece:







Now time to wire this baby in :)


Since this is going to be behind the tinted piece, I wanted to make the VAFC blend in the dash so I painted it flat black.
Before:


Prep work:


Spray:


After:


Reassembled:



Tomorrow, I'm going to wire it in. Hope it comes out good! B)

Agreed. Whats the point of having a VAFC without being able to tune it or even play with it?

Next step. take apart. solder momentary contact switches to printed board and locate else where....right? Very cool idea though.

I wasn't knocking the idea man but get the damn thing tuned before you go about slapping it back there.

Lol don't you think I planned that out already? :p

So I started all the wiring and mounted it today. For the people that say it's dumb that I can't reach the buttons, I'm not gonna be messing around with the VAFC that much if ALL after it gets tuned. And even if I wanted to, i'd just unscrew the few screws that I need to to get to it. This way, passenger's or anyone can't mess around with it.

Mounted:




Behind glass:




Wiring :/:


Gonna try finishing tomorrow :)

I actually got the VAFC for only 75 bucks! (propz to preludejayES) If you look around, you can get some nice deals on em, especially from people who upgraded to hondata or something along those lines.








Now time to get it tuned! :)
