Nigwhyrito Garage (not dial-up safe)

Okay I'm addicted to working on my 2004 diamond silver Sorento EX.
Heres some pics of the sorento and the work I done to it.. Nothing to custom trying maintain a stock look. I sux at taking pictures and i just feel weird taking pics of my car.. I think it may make the wife jealous.

mods i have started on or completed
carputer
rebadge my sorento
automatic folding mirrors
fuel door release switch
locking fuel door
changed grille
mounted korean radio pac oem
gps/wif/pcs antenna
wood grain shifter
Mount dvd burner inside radio
and the stuff in my signature.

it started with this added in the woodgrain shifter from james...



But owning a sorento means wanting more in life.. I wanted a pc in the car time to spend more time and money

this the screen


This is where the screen will go

RE: Nigwhyrito Garage

My next mod was Automatic folding Mirrors.Eyebrow
USA sorentos dont have this. Some foreign ones have it stock..Hissyfit
This was made possible with the help of site member ByeunBye
heres a video i made of them in action
http://s54.photobucket.com/albums/g86/ni...to1AVI.flv

In the video you see chrome covers and blue tint on the mirrors. They came straight from Korea. I dont have any chrome on sorento so the chrome outsides of the mirror were overkill I removed chrome mirror housing and went back to stock housing.. I am planning on getting the led housing from James when my money is right.. Current pic of my mirrors


My next Mod was changing the grille from USA stock to Korean stock


Then I upgraded the korean stock to Korean custom.. This is not the same Koreaan Grille that is chrome. Simple add on piece (darn wish i would have kept the chrome housing mirrors now)Duh

RE: Nigwhyrito Garage

okay wide awake here are some more pics
My next mod was a adding a locking fuel door.. I ordered a fuel door from a foreign 2007 as well as solenoid and fuel door switch
so now sorento has smooth sides.
before

after


Here is a pic of the software on the car pc. I normally run it in full screen
it plays back music,videos,dvd,gps,etc and its touch screen. (xm-when i get a xm antenna)

some shots of the wiring test pics for the fuel door/tailgate switch i had to paint it to match interior. The circuit board is the folding mirror relay in the background.USA Sorentos dont have these installed. oh wait mine is a USA sorento.... Nobody better call customs on my sorento. I cant find her green card. (very lame )



original parts

new parts before painting.

RE: Nigwhyrito Garage

Uh this is bad pic.. I will try and get better ones.
GPS antenna installed.. I would like to thank the site members who assisted me with this one.. I was scared to cut a whole in my roof but i think i did a good job with ther guidance.  Hammer (Flip side to the story that same night i installed the gps antenna i left the sunroof open by mistake and it rained. well the roof didnt leak but the seats were wet)HammerUsed my heatgun and dried them up. Which is why I want the altron sunroof relay. So when I switch the sorie off the sunroof closes automatically.

gps reciever mouted to back pillar. I have to put the trim back on. I been busy.. Ill get to it.. My sorie looks like a skeleton on the inside all panels are removed.

RE: Nigwhyrito Garage

Okay been working on some more stuff so here we go
DVD burner in factory radio.



I have gutted the cd player that was inside it.
I had to remove old cd player and the red connector was the cd players main wire.(thanks byeun for the help)



Next I added make shift mounts I used picture hangers as a L bracket and screwed them to the radio casing. then hotglued and screwed them to the plastic dvd case.





then I took a dremel and cut the back so a usb cord will fit in the back.



Now I have to figure out how I am going to solder on the small pads on the burner to the radios eject switch.. They are VERY small. the radio eject is easy but the dvd burner is not.
