                        actually the dashconsol was very easy to take apart. the damn door skin had 3 times the bolts in it then the center consol and dash lol. Gotta love cars now adays its all snap together hehe.

                          got a bit more done today. Put some of the trim back on the drivers side since all the wires are 100% ran thier. Got the rear deck speakers in.


                          Got the monitor in and mounted. Used mbkowns great ideal to mount it.


                          Sun was kinda bright =)


                          the other day got tired of trying to fish the speaker wires threw the door
                          so i said FU*@ IT! and drilled holes lol. Looks really good. Will put some loom on it and it will look 100% factory.

                          am gonna try to get the speakers in the doors tonight as well if my wife will let me you married guys know what i am talking about haha.

                              man thier is totally absoultly no way in hell to get the wire threw the factory door loom i assure you! I tried for 3 hours lol. I could not even a coat hanger to go threw with the loom it was that tight. thier was a small hole above it but i could not route 2 sets of 16 gauge wire threw it. I tried and tried...then i saw my drill....and a 9/16 bit and shortly their after the problem was very much solved haha. its totally waterproof (like it rains in texas anyways hehe) and with the loom unless i told you, you would never know ;-)

                              I broke down took the pc out thier and pluged it in the wall. i still do not have the opus in the computer. still adding and removing programs. All i can say is....I am in love! Had no sound since the amp is ofcourse not monuted or wired but man that monitor is sharp as hell. The only thing that bugged me was those 2 damn stuck pixles lol. thier off to the edge so no biggie =) but for a 400 monitor you think it would be perfect. I still totally love it. I am so excited! I dont remember how i found this forum and the carputer but you can bet your left nut (or right for that matter) i am glad i did. Good people here.
