So I started installing the system on my Jag, and it's getting along with some printed parts.

Thank you Jaguar for making firewall penetration easy.

And you put fusebox right next to it

What do you guys think, pretty good or should I move them somewhere else

Firewall grommet prototype, better one on the printer....

Amazing! I love it! 🥰 😃 Is that your 3D printer? That’s something I’ve never made a hobby yet. Maybe I need to get into it.

Yeah, I've been printing stuff for about 8 years, makes it easier when you own older British cars. The parts in the first picture were designed by @Flonase, and he's kind enough to share the files.

Installed the new firewall passthrough plug, moved the control to center console (not happy) but probably will change location or dremel a cable passthrough underneath it....

Installed the rear sensors, drilling and dremeling to hide the cables, came out pretty decent, if I say so myself, had about 4 inches of cable left on the far side sensor to control box. Hopefully I find somebody to test these with in SE or S Florida, parking sensors work.... Both ends.

Final passthrough I printed a groove on the plug and put an O-ring around it.

Need to dremel a hole behind the control so I can hide the cables or move the whole thing somewhere else. If my phone is on the holder it pretty much hides the control if you look from the drivers side window.

rear panels, I could have taken the whole trunk lid apart and hide the cables better, but I think its good enough.

Routed the cables into that OEM hose, and got them inside without cutting or drilling....

It was surprisingly easy to do in the f-type, I was expecting tight spaces and lot more cutting.

So, I figured I might as well change it right away. Here's the final placement....

Instead of re-routing everything I made a big enough hole to slide the control though from the rear.

I know, looks pretty rough, I cleaned it before the install, just wanted to see if the hole was big enough

Nice and clean....

Is anybody testing in Palm Beach or 100 mile radius?

I'm in Port St Lucie and usually test in north western Martin county area. I still have some guns on loan so I have a DETC, Stalker XLR, Truspeed S and prolaser 3. Shoot me a conversation if you want to arrange some testing. Usually takes about 30 minutes or so if everything is working well.

After what I went through to run the cables inside the trunk lid on my TT, I can say with some certainty that you made the right call running them up the side like that... Great install!

The stock market is stagnant or downright sucks, but the good news is my CPU is coming back from ALP. Should be here on Saturday sometime.... Hopefully.

Evidently they were backed up and "just changed the CPU".... seems I got a rebuilt back, the case is not new either.

It's finished, the LED found a permanent place in front of the speedometer and as you can see the first hole went in the wrong spo. I promise this is the last photo of the installation, just going for the fiftieth post ;) ....

And Here's final spot for the USB, thanks @Flonase for reminding what to call the thruwall-bulkhead-permamount-goddamned-USBthumbdrive-thingy-actuallycalled-square flush mount..... One of the hardest found parts, I was already drawing one in cad ready to print it. Anyway, found a perfect spot for it to look like it belongs there. Can't see it if you don't go down in the footwell and look up. And it looks crooked

@Flonase Is that USB 3D part available publicly by chance? I may have to look into something like that for my install.
