    This is much like my first inspiration for CarPC.
    The StarTrek car. I cannot find it anymore.. But it where the very first car I have seen, that had a computer in it.. and it where built like it where taken out of star trek... Even had custom paint job, and the signature of the main cast of the show.
    Where built on a Camaro or Firebird if I'm not mistaken.

    OMG! the MR2 is everything I was thinking of and more.
    Not exactly how I would do it style-wise but definitly the concept I was going for.
    I still got weigh this to see if I take it on...

    I've seen this done, and it works real time, and is as accurate as your original guages. Plus you can use the monitor to display other things such as reverse camera, without having to mash up your dash.
    At first glance I thought that this was a joke. People have really done this? I mean, don't get me wrong, I can see reasons and benefits to this setup, but it seems like a lot of complication and monkey business to achieve little more than one initially had.
    Electronics work on magic smoke - don't let it out.
