It's my "spare time".

Mel works a lot of weekends, and is busy looking after her mother almost full time, so I have a choice ................

I am not going to do customer work weekends.

We can't go out anywhere, because the old girl can't be left on her own for too long.

I love my cars, always have done.

I could go down the local pub Saturdays and Sundays, sometimes do, but by and large that is just a waste of money and results in a headache !!

I love my cars. I also love my Cars

I love doing what to most others is an impossibility.

Even I wasn't actually 100% certain that it would not foul the Heater Box at the top rear of the H/U, until I actually tried it in the Car it might have all ended up in the bin because the Android was actually about 1/2" deeper than the Pioneer

Thankfully it has around a 3/8" clearance at the top, (tightest point), and loads at the bottom where all the wiring comes out, etc.

What else would I do

Of course being spare time projects, this is why the S Class has taken so long

But it's nearing completion

That's why i'm not taking this one off the road for more than a day or 2 right now, the V8 transplant will not happen until the S Class is all done, and I have that to use

Hi,

OK well I'm gonna leave ya all for a while with some piccies of it all working now, workshop has got manic busy, so I need to park the car up and get back to it at the weekend.

Close of play today will see all the Drivers side back together, the roof can then go up and the left side Dash and Glovebox panels can wait, some more (microphone), wiring to do that side, but Mic is working fine, everything tested early this morning, all works a treat

I had a bit of an issue at first with TPMS, it was seeing the sensor ID's but displaying a silly hot temperature for each Tyre and zero pressure, the "Chinglish" instructions made no reference to the fact that the sensors needed individually pairing, nor where to find the menu option, but as it was bugging me, I spent an hour in the Workshop late last night fiddling and sussed out what to do, (no real help found on Google btw).

Basically when you find the menu for "Pairing" you tap a tyre on the screen, hit pair and a timer starts counting down 2 minutes ..................

I started Left Front, let a bit of air out of the Tyre, and beep "Pairing Successful" on screen, next Right Front, success, and then the rear 2

Piccies (continued in next post) :-

Hi @tusabes ,

That's weird, it is SLK Cluster mounted centrally on top of SLK Forward Centre Console, but not SLK Dash Top, don't suppose you know what the car is ????

I see they have covered the panels in Stitched Leather, once my Car has V8 Powertrain and the Exterior Bodywork is all 101% I will do the same, Anthracite Grey with Blue Stitching

Awesome job !!!-
My car too came with a pioneer multimedia unit that too does anything and everything
Download the torque app into and and buy a Bluetooth obd scanner that has live data ECT and you can then display a few things like battery voltage and trans temp and stuff that is not on the gauge cluster .
