Talking Need help with Xbox install in car

OK guys. I saw a post how someone opened their Playstation and tapped into the low voltage lines past the step down transformer to hook it up to their 12V power from the car without an inverter. I want to put in an Xbox this weekend and was wondering if anyone had done this to an Xbox. I donít wan to use an inverter because it causes too much HF noise in the stereo and basically wastes power. Please help?!?!?!

Contact my good friend Chris @ Total Trim in Brantford. He is a freakin' amazing installer. He is the ONLY one that will touch my cars for car audio installation. I don't have his phone# but you can e-mail him. I will PM you his address.

Yes it is Zeemax and it is a piece of shit!!!! I have never replaced body parts other than OEM replacements. I want to know if you had the same problems or am I the lucky one. First off I was told that there was a 4-6 week delivery from England to Canada. It took over 3 months. Then when I got it, I had to manufacture brackets for the sides. Then my body shop guy showed me that the fiberglass thickness was inconsistent and the trim line was not symmetrical from left to right. It was also covered in hairline cracks. A little filler everywhere and it looked okay. Next I tried to fit the thing on and the damn thing was warped. One edge by the wheel wells is lower than the other. Then I noticed that the angle of a line on the top does not match the profile of the car.The crappy cover in to hide the screws in the front, I could have done a better job with a piece of wood and a carving knife. And how the hell are you supposed to put the brake ducts into place?!?!? The fog light brackets are useless and the outer air intakes hit the BMW rad ducting. Anyways I was very disappointed with the bumper and I don't know if this is common or not. I tried to email them numerous amounts of times with no reply! I am soooooo pissed at them, I feel like

There is pretty much no such thing as a snap-on fiberglass bumper. All of the fiberglass bumpers usually have to be fit(trimmed) in order to put them on. This is why it costs quite a bit to professionally install a fiberglass bumper since there is always a bit of bodywork required. I wonder if this is what you had experienced. I was a bit lucky with mine since I bought it used and someone already went through the pain of fitting it.

I am not talking about just 'trimming' I mean that the whole damn thing is warped a mile!!! It was filled with hairline cracks and it was generally a pile of shit!! The brake ducts don't even line up close and I had to trim my rad intake for it to fit.

That sucks. I heard that one of Zeemaxs official retailers was selling fakes and passing them off as real.... (Think I read that on the Zeemax website)
