Overhead console (E450 cab).

I just finished updating my overhead console. I actually did this project earlier this year but did not allow for the TPMS display to rotate. Consequently, it was hard to see.

The console serves two purposes. First, I needed somewhere to mount the TPMS display, and secondly, I wanted to get rid of that cheesy overhead light, which was all but worthless.

This week I finished modifying the console to allow the TPMS display to rotate - so it is a lot easier to see.



The console is actually made of Corian and polished to a high shine.


And I am fully aware of the Murphy's Law that states you can only improve on something for so long... then you break it.

So that is in the back of my mind.

I do have one more idea though for this area. I purchased a thermometer/clock earlier this year, but have not decided where to put it.




Finally though, I ran across this mount for the ScanGauge2, and thought I could make a facsimile for the thermometer.

Nice!

I look forward to the day when I can buy a MH that has all this stuff (OBD readout, TPMS, navigation, etc...) built in from the factory into a nice looking, nice functioning, intuitive, integrated display.... such as would be OEM from GM or Ford.....

In the mean time, you've got it going on with about as close as anyone can ever expect! Nice work!

Now there is a mod! Install a MyFordTouch radio with Sync into the coach (it would have an OEM look (since it is!), but the parts alone would probably cost a fortune).

I ended up buying the scangauge mirror blendmount, but then I mounted a scangauge instrument, so I still need to figure out something for the temperature module.
