    FYI, its going into the same car, my bother was good enough to take my car when i got the 09 civic. so when He took over the payment, he got everything with it!, that incuded the carputer.
    this is what the stock dash looks like, un-modded un-raped.

      Are those 12" screens the ones with 16:9 aspect ratio or 4:3?
      I clicked on the links you graciously provided but I can't find any 12" screens in that ebay store at this moment

      If possible can you post the ebay link to the iteem you purchased?
      I am planning to move my screen into the dash and a screen with 16:9 aspect ratio will be perfect for me.

        Spec looks great, one thing I've always wondered... What psu can you use on such a powerful system?

          they might have run out but they are 16.9, try emailing them. damm nice people! they where the only ones willing to offer a solution to my needs. i was looking for a way of using laptop screens, i needed lvds controller boards, they set me up with test boards, programmers, 10-15-20 and even 40 pin lvds cables!, first i found them thru alibada, but then incidentally i bought the screens from them a year later...



          their touch pannels are top knotch too!

                    Ah crap - my bad.
                    I confused PSU with CPU etc.

                    That really spoils my intent.
                    Luckily I just shaved so the egg is licking off real easy.

                    Me - total fail!
