    Pretty cool, I'd personally like the LCD closer to the drivers seat myself though. Also, work on cleaning up all those wires running everywhere in back.

    Can you tell us more about the system? How is it connected to your stereo? What can it do? What are the specs on the laptop?


    Oh, and shame on you for driving one of those behemoths. I hate those things so much.

            It is a laptop dc power adaptor ( Portable Add-ons ).

            I will rate the FM Modulator 7 /10.

              Can you turn the laptop on from the front or do you need to go to the trunk to turn it on?

                  with a hole in my dash that big the head unit would be so gone! but then again I'm not worried about resale. No one in my family has ever sold a car... always have to pay to take 'em away after they've literally been driven into the ground

                    Pay to take them away ! Hell even the salvage guys around here will come pick it up and write you a $50 check.

                      I called two junk yards to see what they could do with the last two cars (89 honda civic SI w/300k and 91 ford explorer with 95k (POS!)). Both wanted $50 just to tow them away!

                          I wounder if there are any other ways to hook it in. maybe a cd changer connection on the back of the HU? IMO FM mods are probably butchering the sound quality in what sounds like a nice system.

                            Cool, my friend was going to put a docking station in his trunk.

                            He had problems with powering USB devices though, not enough 5 volt power. He never got a Radio Shack 5 volt power unit for the car though.

                            You can always run a wire to a button and tap into the docking stations power button if you wanna have access to it in front.

                            The great thing about a laptop, is it has it's own battery and won't reboot from a crank and you can set it to standby when the battery goes into use.

                              No No NO ! You don't call the junkyard. You call the people that recycle metal.

                              Sorry, should have been more clear.
