Motorized iPad 2 Install in Silverado
I decided to modify my iPad install to house an iPad 2. In order to
accomplish this, I had to cut the air vent, move the AC controls down and
fabricate a pod to house the AC controls and Kenwood headunit. I used a
linear actuator to motorize the unit. The headunit has Bluetooth and USB
input for hands-free calling and music when I don't have the iPad in the
iPad Install 2005 Chevy Silverado inspired by Soundman
Custom iPad install into my 2005 Silverado
1. Made a template out of masking tape
2. Made a filler plate out of 1/8 MDF
3. Used quick drying epoxy to glue the board down
4. Screwed the board in TEMPORARILY with screws and speed clips(Until the
5.Removed the screwed
6. Fiberglassed the board smooth with resin and mat
7. Traced out a pattern of the iPad on the MDF and cut it into 3 pieces to
get the contour of the iPad. I used quick drying super glue to temporarily
hold the shape. BE SURE TO PROTECT THE iPAD SO YOU DON'T GLUE THE BOARD TO
8. Once you get the basic shape, you can now use resin and matt to
fiberglass the boards together for a hard shape.
9. Now you can cut a notch out for the docking station.
10. I used epoxy to hold the dock station in place. (left the iPad in the
housing to get the perfect angle on the docking station)
11.Cut out side pieces and glued them in with super glue
12. Cut out 4 pieces on MDF to create the front panel, and glued it in.
13. Once all the panels are temporarily glued in, you can now fiberglass
all the panels together to make a very strong mold/case for your iPad.
14. Cut out a notch for the HOME button. take your time!! this can make or
break the look of this project. After the final painting of this housing, i
will be adding a suede backing, to protect the iPad from scratches
15. I modified a 13" TV bracket so my iPad an swivel in both directions for
easy removal and tilting to the passenger.
16. I created a housing for the bracket and iPad housing. i left the edges
a little longer, so i can grind it flush.
17. After a lot of carful measuring, i cut out a section from my dash
bezel, so i can fiberglass that housing into the dash bezel.
18. I cut notches out of the housing, so i can use them as a guide to line
up the housing perfect. I used hot glue to to temporarily hold the housing
in place until i fiberglass it in. (i used hot glue because this takes a
lot of adjusting)
19. Sanded the edged flush and fiberglassed the edges in. (Front and Back)
IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING, THE BACK PANEL OF THE HOUSING IS MADE OUT OF
1/2 MDF TO SUPPORT THE BRACKET AND iPADS WEIGHT.
20. AFTER HOURS AND HOURS OF FIBERGLASSING AND BONDO AND SANDING AND
PRIMERING (IM TALKING AT LEAST 50 HOURS IN THE PROJECT SO FAR) YOU GET
THESE REULTS. I AM GOING TO SAND THE REST OF THE DASH SMOOTH AND PAINT TO
COLOR MATCH THE EXTERIOR OF MY TRUCK.
AS FAR AS INSTALLING IT IN MY TRUCK, I HAVEN'T COMPLETED IT YET, BUT HERE
IS WHAT I'M GOING TO DO.....
1. I HAVE DECIDED TO MAKE THIS INSTALL SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO A LOT OF
CUTTING OF THE FACTORY DASH. THE HOUSING FOR THE STOCK RADIO AND THE A/C
CONTROLS CAN BE COMPLETELY UNBOLDED (EXCEPT FOR 2 RIVETS) I DO THIS, SO YOU
CAN ALWAYS PUT IT BACK TO STOCK IF YOU EVER WANNA SELL UR TRUCK
2. OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE TO RELOCATE THE CLIMATE CONTROLS, I DECIDED TO
RELOCATE THEM TO THE OVERHEAD CONSEL (WHERE FACTORY REAR CLIMATE CONTROLS
3. YOU MUST NOW REMOVE AND PLUG OFF THE A/C VENT.
4. THE ONLY PART YOU SHOULD HAVE TO CUT OUT, IS THE TABS THAT THE POCKET
(BELOW THE VENT) IS CLIPPED TO. SAVE WUT YOU CUT OFF BECAUSE IT CAN ALWAYS
BE GLUDED BACK ON!!
5. I NOW WILL HARDWIRE A CIGARETTE SOCKET BEHIND DASH TO GIVE CHARGING TO
MY IPAD. AND I USED A 3.5MM JACK TO RCA OUT TO GIVE ME AUDIO TO MY RADIO.
6. I USED A PIONEER DEH-6200BT RADIO, AND USED THE I.P BUS INPUT SO GET
AUDIO TO MY SPEAKERS, FROM MY iPad. I USED THIS RADIO INSTEAD OF AN
EQUILIZER BECAUSE IT HAS BUILT IN BLUETOOTH AND HAS AN AUDIO INPUT. AND I
AM MOUNTING IT UNDER MY PASSENGER SEAT BECAUSE I HAVE STEERING WHEEL
CONTROLS, WHICH WILL ALLOW ME TO CONROL THE VOLUME AND AND ANSWER/END MY
PHONE CALLS. SO THERE IS REALLY NO NEED FOR MY TO HAVE THE RADIO VISIBLE.
7. I MADE SURE TO USE A METRA GMOS-01 SO IT KEEPS HEATLY COMPUTER CONTROLS
AND KEEPS ALL MY FACTORY WARNING CHIMES. OF COARSE I HAVE TO EXDEND ALL THE
WIRES TO UNDER THE SEAT.
SORRY, I AM KIND OF NEW TO iPHOTO, SO I AM NOT SURE HOW TO ADD TEXT TO MY
DONT GET ME WRONG, THIS IS VERY INTENSE LABOR, AND IF YOUR A PERFECTIONIST
LIKE ME, IT CAN TAKE EVEN LONGER. I HAVE AT LEAST 50 HOURS IN THE DASH
MODIFYING ALONE, AND I HAVE A LOT MORE HOURS TO GO. I WILL BE POSTING MANT
MORE PICTURES SOON AND HOPEFULLY A FULL VIDEO ONCE IT IS ALL COMPLETE. IF
YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AND ANY COMMENTS, FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AND ILL DO
MY BEST TO GET BACK TO YOU. HOPEFULLY YOU LIKE THIS INSTALL

iPad in Silverado Part II - Auto On/ Off with Display Out
So here's the completion of this project. I use PluggedIn from Cydia to get
the iPad to automatically unlock and go to an App when I turn the truck on
and to automatically turn off and pause music when I turn it off. I also
used DisplayOut to get video to mirror the iPad onto the two headrest
monitors. These two must-have tweaks trully complete the install. You can
get DisplayOut and PluggedIn from Cydia on a jailbroken iPad and LeechTunes
for the music player from the App Store.
