          thanks guys

          as for the angle... yup, it is angled up slightly (that's just how the dash is shaped). you can't tell from the pics, but if you're in the driver's seat, you're looking directly at it. if the screen was completely vertical, i'd think it would be harder to see....

                awesome job, I have an RSX myself (non S type). I'm also using a modified version of the simplistique skin (in the process of making my own) and we both are using laptops running road runner! lol, you are cheating off me.

                seriously though, great job. I also like how the RSX's dash tilts up to meet the driver's eyes.

                      Did you make that screen area yourself? Looks very nice.

                              That install shows great attention to detail and design. I love the way everything flows and looks like it was ergonomically designed, not just a bolt-on. Great job!
                              I have too much time and too little aggravation in my life, so I built a carPC. ;)
