2006 Infiniti M45 SR7/ZR3

From tunertricks.com July 8, 2005. This vehicle was actually done a few weeks ago, but we’ve been so busy attending to all the projects on hand that I’m just now getting to putting it up, but it’s definitely worth taking a look at. The car is a 2006 Infiniti M45 that we added an Escort Passport SR7/ZR3 integrated radar detection and laser detection/shifting system to. This is the same customer who owns the Aston Martin DB9 featured in May, and he came back to us to make sure that the display and controls for this system would blend into the interior and not be obtrusive in any way. Typically, we would locate the display in the rearview mirror on such a vehicle, but the design of the mirror itself (the layer order of the glass elements) would not allow that type of install, so we went with the display in the dash cluster just below the factory head unit’s CD drive. We basically cut a hole in the factory dash panel using an inverted router and backed the hole with two-way acrylic mirror (to match the factory chrome trim) before mounting the control head’s custom-extended display behind the panel. This allows for a nearly invisible installation when the unit is turned off, and great visibility when it is in use. I think it turned out really nice looking, so check out the photos and look for more soon - I’ve got a few more under my belt to post when the time is available…
