    Thought I would share a few pics of TxAxZxZ's build, I am using the new Xenarc 706TSA monitor which I purchased from the mp3car store. So far this monitor is great for installing. Much better than previous generations in that aspect. Everything is one one board, convenient mounting features, high res, anti glare, DVI input. It has a remote input box which will actually be good in this build since the jeep jk has no where near the space the mustang has. Please keep in mind there is no trim ring and the screen is not mounted yet, I am just test fitting things to see the best route.

    Hey Tragik, I responded to your email.

    Here are some more pics of the JK build, I'm considering starting a new thread since this one is getting so large.

    I machined a 0.15" aluminum bezel for the monitor, and brushed it for a nice finish. It can be painted, powder coated or left raw, all look really nice. The most important thing though is this part is STRONG. It is thick and it is rigid, I may have outdone myself on this one.

    The monitor still has the protective wrapping on it.

    Tested the xenarc monitor a bit today, It has quite an array of features. I am going to place the IR sensor somewhere on the bezel so the remote can be used when installed. Needed to order a longer ribbon cable for the switch / IR PCB so i just sort of taped it in place for now. The cable it came with is 2", so I ordered a 6". This monitor has advanced settings like PIP of your sources, which can come in handy when you have multiple sources. Monitor can go all the way to 1280 x 1024 res but 1280 x 768 is near perfect for high res and aspect ratio. For standard carPC'n though I would run 800x600 which these pics are. Also noticed the stand alone input box runs very warm on this monitor. Has a nice feature called "mirror" which lets you rotate thye display so this unit can be installed up or down in the dash since the mounts will allow either ! Pics are shown of the unit running "upside down" for ease of hookup. A handy feature if you roll the jeep TxAxZxZ

    Cool! With the mirror feature I can watch episodes of 24 and The Unit while I'm waiting for help to flip me back over.

    This is coming out way better than I expected Joe. You are Da Man!!

    Where are you getting the longer ribbon cable from for relocating IR PCB?

    joe, as everyone says...good work man. I would love to know if you can make one for a 2006 maxima. the maxima metra kit is for a single din only. but im sure with a dremel I can make it double din.

    I read most of the thread, skiping a few pages to get here, but how much is a set up like what u have. simple not overly crazy. screen, case, mainboard, hd, etc etc...bare minimum ...

    Most of the parts vary pretty heavily in price depending on what you get. You can go as cheap as $70 for the Intel D201GLY or spend as much as $200 for just a miniITX mobo and still need to buy the CPU. Screens are the same way. The cheap Lilliputs go as low as $260 or you can spend $700+ on a transflective.

    Parts: Strewn about the house...
    Install: Someday soon...

    I went to install my case this weekend Joe and it seems that with the cables (VGA, Serial) sticking out the back, I am short about 1/2 inch or so. Any tips to help?
