My girlfriend Britney at Cats Junkyard in Lansing pulling out the steering column I will apapt to fit in the Jeep. I used this column for several reasons, it has: tilt, cruise, shift indicator, shift on the column that is cable, not linkage activated, already designed to fit 700r4. Downside was the length was to short. Eh I made it fit.

A dash blank I had made by local sheet metal place. Its 18 gauge. I wanted 16 gauge but the place could not bend it.

Seats from 2007 Saturn Ion. Had to cut and weld a lot including lowering the front of the factory seat adapter.

For more than 8 years that this project has been under way, a project name finally presented itself. I was telling someone about what I had got done recently and they said "Well I've never seen it, sounds like a myth to me". So I'm calling Project "Myth" lol.

Question

Double Din was a lot of work. The derfroster ducts have to be removed and built custom but I love how it turned out.
