      Hey SP97... I have a 97 Spyder in silver. Where and how are you planning to mount that display? I have one of the 10.4 datalux displays. It has such a nice enclosure that I decided I don't want to cut it up, so it's velcro'd onto my dash over the AC controls right now

            would any of you know how hard/easy it would be to move the AC controls down by the stick shift and put the screen up higher to where the AC controls were so the stick shift wouldn't get in the way of viewing the screen?
            I love Arbys setup but I'm working about the stick shift getting in the way.
            Thanks

                SpyderFlex,
                Did you have to rewire your hirose to get the DennisK setup to work properly?

                I'm hooking mine up tonight...I'll let you know how it works!

                  that was an adventure in itself....I got mine totally wired wrong!!...i mean, it wasnt showing anything...Then i thought my controller card was shorted...But after i checked my wiring and compared them with INfix(board member) I saw that my hirose cable was totally screwed up...So i contacted D.K and he sent me a workin hirose cable and i sent him my bad one.....i guess hes already selling them wired correctly cuz my display shows great now as u can see

                    From outside, it looks pretty damn stock. It looks like there's just a big square hole in my dash with nothing in it

                      I wanted to do that, but it's nearly impossible. First, the ac controls work with cables like the cables used for shifters on bikes. All of those would have to be extended just right for your ac controls to still work.

                      Also, you'd have to remove the entire dash to get the AC controls out, which I really didn't feel like doing :/

                      I'm getting a short shifter kit so it's not in the way

                        SpyderFlex,
                        Thanks for the reply - I have another question - what did you use for your power sources? I mean, for the LCD and stuff.

                        I still trying to get mine to work...I will have it working by the end of the day if it kills me!

                        Also - have you played a DVD movie on your screen yet - if so, how does it look?

                          get a 12VDC adapter from radio shack!!and just plug it in....or u could use a barel and connect it to the 12V(yellow wire) and ground(black wire) from a power supply molex....i am running mine like this so that my screen turns on and off as the computer turns on.....Also to power it on shor JA6 and pins 3 and 6 from CNC1 i believe...its in a thread here!!

                            Thanks SF97! I was in Radio Shack today but I forgot to look for the measurments for the barrel connector in the ACG1024 Specs.

                            I will definitely hook it up via the molex...that should work fine!

                            Do you have the OSD for the dennis k setup? I was thinking about getting one so I can change the brightness...

                            Thanks again!

                              just remember that the pin is 12V and the barrel is ground....unlike the microtouch controller card which has the barrel 5V and the tip ground....
                              Just bring the controller card to rat shack and get the measurement there...just dont let the employees touch it!!!!! ....

                              No...i didnt get the OSD...i dont see no need in getting it...my screen looks great and bright as hell....I just need an enclosure for it all.....Im still searching for the perfect enclosure that will house my controller card, screen,inverter, and touch screen controller.....
