Default S13 / 2002 A4 Samsung Tab 3 install

Hi guys this the first time really posting on here. I've worked on cars for a long time. My biggest project I've ever completed was finishing my 1990 Nissan 240sx rhd conversion and building the car from a bare shell. well maybe i should show my rhd project still not done! : 240sx General Discussion - Page 5
Now the reason I'm posting on here is because I have a 2002 audi a4 for a daily driver and I have a project that will be shared with the S13 and the Audi. I recently got some really good subs for christmas that were given to me by the gf's dad that will be going into the audi. So lets fast forward to valentines day the gf got me a Samsung tab 3, and she knew that I've been wanting to pull this project off. I've been researching and going through numerous forums to plan it out. Now the project goal is to have the tab run as my head unit for both cars. That means I have to make a fiberglass mount kit that will be able to hold the tab in place. So that means fiberglassing, bluetooth links, and so fourth. I've already made fiberglass enclosures for the s13 and my system has a double din jvc dvd/cd deck that I'll be eliminating from the car, and my whole system is running off of an 800 watt 4-channel amp. For the Audi the plan is to remove the stock stereo, and have a marine 4-channel amp run the stock speakers, then have the tab link to a bluetooth adapter that's hooked up to the amp, from there the volume will be controlled by a volume control ****. The tab will be held in place by magnets that will be glued to a slim case. So the whole point of this is to take advantage of google maps, all my music being saved to my tablet, and the simplicity of just grabbing your tablet or ipad and sitting it in the dash and just going. I'll make sure to try to update and take pics as much as possible. Right now I've ordered a dash kit, a 4 channel mini amp, a Metra 70-1787 stereo wiring kit, a JVC bluetooth adapter, a 3000 watt 2 channel amp for the subs, and of course the 7 inch Samsung Tab 3. I think the wiring will be the toughest part because I will be wiring the 4 channel amp to the stock wiring as if I were wiring in an aftermarket head unit. I'll make sure to try and take a lot of pictures, and update as a I go.

Well I got a few parts in today and I started to lay the sizing of the tablet around the dash kit. The 4 channel mini amp will push the same wattage if not a little bit more than an aftermarket head unit. I'll have more updates when I start making the fiberglass shell where the tablet will sit.

Ok so here's a small update. I started the Audi pan where the tablet will sit. Hopefully when I make the pan for the s13 it'll be a lot better.

Yea man I understand what you mean. I'm tired of spending so much money on a stereo when I already have a tablet that has all the features of a stereo. Only thing that I am going to have to buy is a mobile hot spot. Plus the other thing I like is that I'll be able to use the tablet in my other cars. Let me know if you have any questions.
