        Very nice install. What do you have for support under the CD-ROM?

          the cd-rom is supported by 2 "L" shaped straps on either side which are fibreglass'd onto the facia. Its also being held up by the air con- controls, Its pretty solid!

                good install and nice work in the trunk. Totally clean. Good work on the cuts for the CDROM.

                Your Screen bezel could use a little fabrication work. Its a good start though. The lines are really wavy and uneven. It may be hard to do now since you have everything assembled but it could use some more work.

                All in all good job

                            Looks good, hope to join the club soon. Almost got the parts together, do you have any more pics of how slot looks lined up inside of the dash. I am curious of the space constraints. As I am going to mimic your design, playing dvd's is intregral part of my setup. (ie. Movies but most especially data discs since small 40gb HD)

                              dvd facia

                              I have a few pics here of the dvd mounted onto the facia, Be carefull when mounting the screen, If I had to do it again, I would mount the screen a little higher and a little more to the left, to give me more room to position the dvd rom, Its a veryyyy tight squeeze just now.

                              hope the pics are of some help to you,

                              (just a wee note, In order to connect the dvd rom to the pc in the boot, i had to use a laptop to ide converter, then an ide to usb converter, which is plugged into a small 4port usb hub (the usb panel on the facia plugs into it also) the hub is then plugged into a 3m usb lead to the pc in the boot.!!) It seems to work fine!
