    Well the build is still going good, I ended up going with an 80 gig 3.5 inch drive instead of the 2.5. Black Top western digital. I have the power and the space so i figured 'why not?' These updated pics are mostly me doing software configuration. This little via PC is running really good, I love brand new harddrives. Oh yes VERY IMPORTANT*** The 'coilpack' on the circuit board for these little screen is generating some voltage/amperage, I put my finger on it to see if it was warm and BAM painful blue arc from the coilpack, and a capicitor next to it, into my finger. Didn't effect the screen or display in the least just keep on going. I was in shock for a few minutes like what the hell just happened?? Lucky thing I did not fry anything. ::learns lesson about touching live circuits - even if they are low voltage:: Anyways I downloaded the pdf's on how to pull apart my interior and I will be ordering the m2-atx this weekend. Then I can finally put it in my car!! ::excitement brewing!: For now im just adding mad songs and getting everything perfect so I dont have to mess with it once it is installed (hopefully) Also I took pics of the screen with and without flash as im sure you can tell from the pics. Its hard to photograph bright light sources.

    Well finally did the test fit last night and I cannot believe how good this fits. I also cannot believe ow much room is in my dash!! I ended up fabbing 2 more plates at work today. One is a top cover with a lip on the back so I can put the OEM 'nub'(look at the pics) on it and slide it right into place. The other is a H.D. mount made to hold the harddrive at a flat horizontal plane. This will attach to the top plate with some rubber washers in between the bolts and plates to add some dampening. Not much, just enough to absorb engine vibration and such. The HD will sit perfect on top the PC with room to spare. Here are some pics along with the OEM radio. So far I have not modified anything in my car. I removed the power outlet in the center console and im going to use that hole to have a USB extension and ethernet crossover cable poking out. (just in case i need to add files /temp hardware etc.

    Its an aftermarket trim kit made by metra. I got it at circuit city. All I gotta say is that double DIN was made for a 7" touchscreen

    Dam, that's nice.
    Did you have to trim the LCD case to fit into that double DIN kit?
    Got any picture of the pre "glue"?

    Sorry no pics of the pre-glue. Yes I did trim the bottom buttons off the touchscreen housing. Other than that it slid right into place. I used 2 part epoxy (plastic welder) to fuse the parts together. Thank you for all the nice comments! I am a perfectionist when it comes to building stuff, and am lucky to have acces to a lot of metal tooling & metal stock. So yeah I ordered the power supply form the mp3car store to show my support and they charged it to my account 6 times and it says its backordered? Figures the final piece i need for the install gives me 10x headache. I need to contact the admins and figure out whats up
