      Yea, I like the rails too. Having the computer 'floating' is probably good for cooling too. Now you just need to get yourself a Visteon HD radio unit and hook up that sound system you've got to that PC!

        Yeah Cheers, Wanted it because i wanted to be able to work on the PC easy if i needed to install something.

        just got to undo the three screws on the back and the whole PC box just comes straight off and sits down in my boot

            I have it because i am testing 6th gear at 60km/s and at 110km/s for the Air to Fuel Ratio.

            Trying to work out if its Fuel efficient.

                Have you got photos of how you mounted your touchscreen onto the dash surround??? In the process of putting another screen together for my VX S and am always looking for different ideas. Nice sliders as well...

                  Well I haven't got any photos but this monitor comes with a Mount so it will mount on your dash.

                  I unscrewed that and made hole in a plastic support underneath it and the screw goes through that and into the monitor, once i did that i cut out the top and bottom of the little lips that cover the surround of the dual din with a Stanley knife and pliers.

                  the monitor kept falling back so i ran all the cables to the side of the Center console and super glued the whole top part of the monitor to the Dash board at the top.

                  so if i need to get to the cables i can still in the side foot well sections...

                    Nice. I like your boot mount. So much better than mine because you can actually slide it out... mine is bolted in and is a real PITA to work with
