    nice to see another mustang install, get some daytime pics though of the interior.. would love to see more. i'm currently in the process of doing an install in my '04 mach 1. building the case right now which is going in-dash and moulding the lilliput display into the radio bezel.

    as far as the shaving of the licence plate, i really dont like it but that's just my opinion. looks like something a civic would do

      Agree, I don't think that will look too good. But to each their own.

            I have a 2001 convertible that i'm trying to fit with a 10.4" allbrite, i kinda forgot about my project when i left for greece in late may.... but i want to get back into it, but i'm not sure how to fit the screen, I had the idea of doing the same thing you did, but am not really sure how as the screen is such a tight fit.

            Got a writeup of how you made the bezel for it? and how you mounted the screen?

              it looks pretty good, but I agree that I don't know that the shaved liscense plate would look very good. Also, if you shave the area, are you just going to mount the plate on top of the area, or would you find a new place for the plate? It would definately be different, but I think that is an important part of the overall rear design of the car. If you have too flat and long of a rear end, it will look like the eclipse rear...it's just wayyyy too lonnnnngggg and flat - they look like they go on forever

                Dude, shave the license plate holder, and put an LCD in its place (linked to carputer). Then you can give messages to tailgaters

                (Or force them to watch gay porn or something )

                  This is the best idea yet. I would love to be able to send messages to the people that ride my butt. However, usually I send them the message by slamming on my brakes and causing them to freak out - well, usually meaning whenever my family is not in the car with me. My wife really gets angry when I do that...don't have any idea why.

                  One time I kinda actually felt bad for a person that was riding my tail (do I even need to say it was a woman?). I slammed on the brakes and she totally flipped and overreacted. She was in a Jeep Cherokee and her tires squealed from her pressing the brake so hard, her car shuddered back and forth, and she almost went off the road. I just calmly looked over to my wife and said, "That's what she gets for riding my tail"...well of course, until my wife reamed me a new one for "risking her life or something along those lines." You know how the women like to nag.

                  About the gay porn idea - don't know if that would be considered indecent exposure or something Also, lord knows what that would say about you for haivng it in the first place.

                    can you try and throw up some more pictures of the interior of your setup? Something that shows more of the dash as a whole, and with better lighting :-p

                    EDIT: Sorry, didn't read that you said you only have a camera phone, my mistake. How do you plan on interfacing the carputer with your mach 460 (or have you already?) assuming you haven't ripped it out already?

                      Dam taht was what i was doing im going to put a screen there behind lexan and water proof it with a 10.4 inch monitor and take a picture of my license plate and post it up there!!! Thats my whole reason of shaving it....i just wanted to see what people would say if it was left plain....but i was working on taht as we speak.....a 10.4 monitor in the rear trunk.

                      There was alot of cutting involved.....when u take the bezel off there are a plastic reinforcement supports you would need to cut.....well you would have to basiclly cut everything out....and block off the vent...in my case i cut the whole vent at the blockage point....of the vents.
                      -you would need to also cut bits and pieces inside and behind the dash so that the 10.4 monitor would fit
                      -if you are only mounting a monitor no with no touch screen there will be more slack in the workin area
                      -my 10.4 monitor with touchscreen fit like a glove.....once set in place it was supported my 2 plastic shelf like things inside the dash and the metal support of the dash holdes it up.
                      -behind the screen u can put a small epia mobo or any small mobo its about a 12in (front to back) x 8in (top to bottom) x 20in (side to side) i didnt have anything behind there yet but i dont have a idea yet.....

                      for the stereo system i just read on audiocontrol.com about the LEG sound processor or somtehing can let you run your factory amped system with your own aftermarker amps, subs and so on.....so im reading up on taht right now.
                      but for the stock stereo system i like it alot but i plan to upgrade as soon as everything is installed for the carputer and the body work is done....
                      ripping the stcok 460 mach audio is to much of a pain in the as that can wait
                      right now im jsut working on the body i have stopped with the carputer i want to do one thing at a time because i have notice i tend to wonder off and do stuff i neva get to finish lolz
                      Thank for all the input and i'll try to get alot more picture up for the mount and how the body work is comin along....thank you guys agian for lookin at my install!!!!

                          i'll ask around i think it legal if the screen doesnt have any motion in it or something ifs its just a picture of your license plate then it doesnt cause a distraction to other driver or something to taht extent. but im not sure it looks illegal to me too hahahah
