    Nice work. Interesting car as well. heh. Anyway, so you should put up some more pictures other than just the general things. Like carputer mounted, a far away shot of dash and any other work you did. Looks good though!

      Will Do when I get my N70 Phone back from warranty. Without a camera ATM !!.

      The interesting thing is. There is a lot more work involved then when you first plan this out.

        haha Not for me man. When I started I also did like 4 other projects in the process including a dual battery trunk mount, rear custom dash, redoing seats, and redoing wiring. That's why it's been taking me forever. heh.

                  God some people are dickheads. If you think thats nice get off your arse and buy a new 75,000 caprice.

                    Yes there is a console switch installed (hidden) out of the way so I can switch between HVAC and Computer inputs. Although the ford system overlays the HVAC display when you press a button on the dash or change the volume.

                      Why would a holden be much better to do for? what are your reasons for this statement.

                      1. Pre VE commodore no standard colour screens or provisions for front screens except for the Caprice that has dual rear LCDs.

                      2. The only other option is to use after market roof drop down LCDs.

                      3. The point of MY project was to use the FACTORY screen as a demonstation.

                      4. The whole setup looks factory from wiring to boot where the pc looks apart of the car.

                        Looks good mate. I'm using the prem sound screen for my Alpine deck which does DVD, MP3, all that, and displays all the track info on it.
                        I also run my laptop on the screen for Nav.
                        Have you thought about fitting a touch-screen overlay to it?

                              it will do NTSC and VGA but VGA with 640x480 60hz H, 15Khz V

                              very clear and nice for watching dvds. Does anyone know where i can get a touch screen overlay for this size
