    Any ideas on where to install the case and / or what case to get?

    I'm guessing just in the rear storage area for ease... Now I just need to find a case that isn't huge and ugly.. I'm using a standard ATX mobo (probably, that's what I will most likely have laying around)..

    I'd do some measuring and see if you can fit the computer in-dash behind your screen. Minimal loss of storage space, and short cabling runs. Take a look at what blk02si did with his old mustang. http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/fabr...ps-indash.html

    Unless you go the ATX route and then that's obviously not an option.

    Seriously. If I ever re-do my build, I'm doing it that way.

    I bought one of these and didn't end up using it. : http://store.mp3car.com/Double_Din_B...h-016-0001.htm

    A snip here, a few well placed holes and I've got an in-dash double din case. You could make your own by hand. Just needs some sheet aluminum and a few tools. He has a sheet metal break available to him, but that's not necessary.

    Did you send it back or what?

    $500 compared to the $250 one on ebay... I think I have to go with the $250 one (even though that one is much better).

    I actually have the one without the screen included, which was $150.

    Ahh.. So that'd be $150 plus $160ish for the screen (plus doing all the ripping apart, soldering, etc yourself) for $310..

    I'd be afraid to jack something up...
