    That looks great, man. You should post that up in Apple forums to show how it's done, or do an endgaget/lifehacker feature, whatever. Where's the video with the actuator and all?

    Looks incredible man. Couple questions.

    1. Someone else asked as well but which actuator are you using? Any picks of how it is mounted?

    2. The bezel that the ipad slides into, is that a case that you bout and painted or is it completely fabricated by you?

    Thanks and again, great job.

    1. I bought 2 linear actuators a long time ago and forgot the place where I got them, but they are 1" stroke 15 lb actuators. I don't have a pic of how its mounted, but it is about 7 inches long and I mounted it to the back with L brackets.

    2. I made the bezel from scratch.

    I will have a video up shortly... It has been raining a lot and waiting for brighter day so you could see everything.

    Hey how do you have your ipod charging? Did you just use the usb cord from the dock connector straight to the radio, or are you charging it from a cigarette lighter? thanks.
