    Believe it or not, some noobs have experience with forums. mp3Car isn't the only forum on the net.

    See, now you're talking about the difference between a n00b and a newbie again.
    ArthrDent is most decidedly not a n00b. In these forums, he is, however a newbie. newbie is just a matter of longevity, or lack thereof.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Now you are getting your Newbs (newbies), noobs and n00bs in a twist.


    I never referred to ArthrDent as any of the above mentioned forms of newb.


    Because he has shown, that although he is a newbie (someone with a low post count on this forum) he is certainly not a n00b (someone who has posted alot but still hasn't learnt how forums work properly).

    Wait a sec....
    I never said I was annoyed at all. I merely pointed out how Jono was incorrect distinguishing n00bs and newbies.

    (Oh, and it is spelled n00bs. Those are zeroes, not O's.)

    thanx
    well if you guys haven't scared him off i'll post at least one helpful response ...lol (i can hear the flames being typed for me already)

    First off dude, you'll probably find that the screen will NOT fit in the center console where the stereo was without some modification (taking a guess its gonna be 7"). Bit of work to be done if you want to go that root. I know cos thats what i'm in the middle of atm. Just need to fab my screen into the dash and I'm pretty much all set. If you want a sleek setup, you'll need to do the same. The obvious place to look at for an ace Focus install is http://www.stevieg.org - its a nice site and hes got an awesome setup imho.

    As to what else you need to do, you'll need an amplifier to get those speakers going since you'll be losing the headunit. Next thing i guess would depend on where you want to put the laptop - in the boot or actually in the cabin. If you drop it in the boot, run ur cables from the monitor under the carpet/in the sills. You could then use an invertor or rig up a car adaptor to power the laptop in the boot (drawing power from the same cable as the one feeding the amp?). Pretty much basically ready to rock then.

    Other than that my friend, as the guys above have made painfully clear is your friend. I've been here over a year and this is only my 9th post (3 of them have been today!!!)

    Anyways, if you need more help, drop me a PM.

    Oh and Scouse, I think your avatar should be banned - i've lost far too many hours of my life just mesmerised by it................... Its a favourite in work cos we can't get through the porn filters...
