            I think anyone that has the _____ to cut up the dash of a brand new car deserves serious respect.

            My car is older, and a lot cheaper to replace the whole dash (I've got a spare) so it's not such a big deal if you miss with the saw or dump resin all over it.

            The car's barely off the showroom floor and you've hacked a big hole in it.
            By the way, how's the car? They look soooo sweet. Chrysler sure can design a body. I remember several years ago , I think it was Csaba Csere (Editor of Car & Driver) that said if cars were sold on looks alone, Chrysler would dominate the market. I, myself am a GM guy, but I really like several of the new DaimlerChrysler's in production.

            So, have you already started plans for part II of the CrossfirePC?

            Keep up the good work,

              I know what you mean Superduck. After a year and I still haven't have a gut to pop the radio bezel out of my Matrix to see if the Lilli will fit in there. I have a hard time dealing with warranttee work at the dealer (oh you blew up the engine because you swap the radio). That kind of stupid clam you know.
              BTW a 2 thumbs up for a nice and clean install + a freaking BIG GUT to breakup the brand new car for a PC install

                    Thanks for the props. The replacement pieces were pretty affordable if I screwed up to bad. The car is a pretty nice out of the box rig.... $10,000 less than a Merc SLK. Same platform and made in the same plant in germany as an SLK.

                    Designed by Chrysler ..... Made by Daimler.

                    It has dual spark per cylinder.... like a hemi.... was a bit concerned about coil interference but no such issue happened thank God.

                        That is nice. One question... Where's the A/C?

                          Using the side vents... the middle vents really did not carry much air velocity anyway. The weird thing about the slks and crossfires, they only have console with foot settings.... no foot only or console only. Kinda weird if you ask me....

                          Got up to 90 degrees this past week and had no problems with the a/c cooling down the car to 73 with in about 5-10 minutes.

                            I was one of those kids that would get a new lego set and never really build what the kit was pictured to build.... Then BMX came along, had new mongoose together long enough to ride it for one race then rip it apart and rebuild it with something new that I did not really need....

                            Then I got my drivers license and all hell broke loose. Stereos, motors, suspensions, and now car computers. I am just glad our country allows weirdos like me to express myself through such methods. Art is cool, but invention and resourceful engineering and are my outlets.
