      GREAT looking install!! It's so nice to see a late model Stang on here. I have a 2002 GT that I am currently gathering all my parts for and the install is right around the corner. Your dash looks very clean - nice fab work. I am going a slightly different route. I am moving my A/C controls down to the bottom of the bezel (where the traction contol, def, and fog light buttons are) and taking out 90% of the top two vents out, leaving enough room for my 7" Lilliput and the 460 stereo in the stock location. I do like the 6-disk indash changer - not ready to let it go just yet. I got an extra bezel off ebay while I work on it. Your project thread was a lot of help. I like what you did with the Mach 460 tweeter adapters. Very cool. Keep up the good work!!!!

        Thanks!!! I know what you mean about the 6-cd changer, it was kind of hard to let go to, but all my music is in digital format anyway so I figured I would not use it when I put the carpc in. I thought of mounting the screen higher up but I like the semi-concealed look of where it is now, plus it helps with the glare. I'm planning on moving the trac control, rear def, etc. buttons down to where the cig ligher is to make way for the slot dvd drive right under the screen, either that or molded on the ceiling storage net thingy...haven't decided yet....

        Well hope your install goes well!!!!

        Cheers!!

                            Wow what a nice install. I really like how you designed your trunk, its very clean. I look forward to seeing subs installed as clean. Perpaps a plexiglass window ontop of your computer box inthat carpet would catch some eyes.

                            Its a absoluetly great install.

                              No doubt. I am lazy and from the old school. I have over 200 CD's and the only MP3's I have are from the internet and copied here and there. Even though I have several GB, I have yet to organize any of it. I guess I still like spinning records
