    Looks great. Nice car too!

    how do you find the sound quality through the tape adapter? the factory headunit matches everything so nicely, it wouldnt look nearly as good with an aftermarket unit, even though you could then use AUX in, for much better sound.

            Thanks guys. Finally some people who like it (my girlfriend thinks I'm a nut). What can you do?

            The tape sound is fine now after tuning the equilizer on Winamp and turning the bass on the stereo up.

            All in all this cost about $2200-2300. I lost track. Admittedly I bought some things that I thought I would need, but didn't like some extension cables. Also, the TV card doesn't work very well even with the antenna booster. So I would estimate that this could get done for around $2100.

            I was thinking about selling the mini pc that I have in there right now and putting my laptop in the car since I will be getting a new one for my job this fall. I know that I'll probably take a loss on it even though it's only been used for under a month. If anyone is interested drop me a line at

              not surprising, considering how bad TV is in the states ;-)

                  What's the pocket that the Capuccino sits in normally used for? cds? general storage? Thats a very slick install. Hows the globalink rf keyboard working for you? The one I had was horrible.

                  Since when is insanity a bad thing?

                    The pocket used to have a removable cup holder and there was room to put other things. The RF Keyboard has been great so far. I don't remember where I got it from, but if you are interested then I can dig through my receipts and let you know.

                            Don't want to sound like a jerk, but my brother and I created that logo based on my initials for my company.

                            Please use another logo.

                              How was the Cappuccino computer?

                              I like the compact form factor, and external power supply (easy 12v adapter)
