      Dude I see you installed the LCD where your AC/Heating vents. what are you going to do when you turn it on?

      I ask because I have been doing something similar in my Maxima.

            so i can still use the windows task bar to switch between copilot and fp, just haven't set up the resolution to be right at the edge of the start bar

                    Looks great, but I agree about the red...it seems to be a little too much, but then again, it's not my ride - so if you like it - more power to you

                    Good Job...I wish I had that kind of space under my rear seats.

                      hehe...i'll try to get some better pics of the "red", this picture makes it look almost orange because of the sun, but do trust me that the red looks better. i think black would have looked alright if I would have found a better black to use, the first one was too glossy, and then i couldn't find a flat black that i liked.


                      as for the vents, i just shoved a paper towel into the duct work to block it so that it blows more out of the sides....

                        looks good

                        Looks great.

                        Heh heh, I see there are now two smiley faces in your jeep.

                        Hmm, I wonder who that could be?

                          The new case features a removeable hard drive rack for updating instead of the firewire drive I was using before. The new case also goes under the front seat instead of being in the drawer in the back. Now I don't have any cable pinching going on.

                          Next mod is a second LCD with cameras mounted all over!

                          New install done for the computer case pics:

                              there's a lot more to worry about if u are in that deep that the computer won't matter.

                              I never go in anything that deep, it's not worth it typically, there's always a shallower route available.
