    DAaamn tahts a nice *** setup. Good job man! Also, does your computer turn on and off with your car automatically? Does your battery drain fast?

    Where did you learn how to make it in dash, it looks like it was bought with the LCD their. Do you got any websites that will give me tips on making Dashboards like that?

    Some stereos have line-in jacks, but most don't. I use a device called FM Modulator which connects to my car's antenna and sends amplified signal from my PC to my car's radio. Those things cost about $20 online and will work with any stereo. Make sure you buy a wired one. Wireless modulators are crap.

    I use a 250 Watt DC-DC power supply from Orbit Micro. Inverters are evil.
    Audio Rockford Fosgate: 900 Watt 4-channel amp, 501bd Mono amp
    Computer AMD 2400+ XP, 1 GB DDR RAM, Orbit Micro 250W DC-DC PSU

    Do those 250 watt power supplies take up your battery a lot? Also which model did you get?

    At 8,000 rpm in 4th it does 114mph. When you shift into fifth rpms drop back down to around 6,000. Does it fly, well thats your decision. Lasars aren't incorporated yet. However have been looking into having flame shoot out the exhaust.

    Thanks,

    Computer is turned on/off by buttons located in console right below screen. I personally don't want it to automatically turn on. Have to move the car to get kids bikes out of garage, take out trash, etc... Don't want to wait for boot up / hibernate. Don't run the pc too often without car running. When I pull into garage, I uplug pc from inverter and plug it directly intop extension cord to house. That way I can use my wireless and update things, or sync files. Computer can run all night, and I don't have to worry about my battery.

    Learn to do dash work by screwing things up. After a while you learn how to hide things and how to incorporate things. That was actually my first attemt with Fiberglas and Bondo. You just have to take your time. If you are in a rush, it won't look right.
