      4 awg running down the door trim to the trunk.

      I will post a full wire diagram tomorrow.


      Metra kit. It ended up being too small by about 1/2 in, so I just mounted the LCD to the back of the radio dash panel.


      Test fitting the LCD. It fit much better without the Metra kit.

            What did you use to cut the plexi? There are no grounding issues correct?

              I used a regular jigsaw with a wood blade to cut the plexiglass. Just be careful of the heat melting the plexi. Also leave the film over it until you are done cutting to help eliminate cracking. I have no grounding issues. It is always a good idea to ground everything to one point. Also run your audio/video cables away from your power cables to eliminate any hum.

                and to drill the holes you used a regular drill bit?

                    i was wondering the same thing. Usually most people screw a cable to one of the MoBo screws so that it can be grounded. I myself built my CarPC into a metal frame of the seats, which is then bolted to the main part of the car.

                      I should have been a little clearer before. I have a ground wire running between all of the feet screws on the motherboard that is then grounded with the Power supply.

                      I will try get some more photos up later today.

                          Here is the monitor mounted into the Dash.


                          First test boot in the car.


                          I'll get some photos of the final product and the trunk where everything is mounted. I still have to get a microphone to have complete phone integration. I still need to mount the USB hub in the glove box and ext. DVD player.

                            I had a little problem last night. I was on my way home last night, turned on my lights and puff no dash lights. So i checked my fuses and sure enough it was blown.

                            I figured it had to do with the screen's grounding. I originally took the ground from the radio harness and used it. I then decided it was best to ground the LCD separately. I then grounded it to the fuse box just under the screen. I haven't had any problems since. I figured it was something I should have done originally, lesson learned.

                              I received a USB radio yesterday. I hooked it up in the house and had great reception, however when I put it in the car I got nothing. I will be taking it apart over the weekend to hook it up to the stock antenna.

                              Another problem I am running into is my M2-ATX is not hibernating. Once I turn the car off it shuts downs immediately. I have the jumper set for P1 with no jumper on the M2-ATX. Is there a setting I am missing on the computer?
