    Very cool.

    I didn't realize when you showed me the screen that it was powered by Luxeon 1 watt LED's. Someone asked me about my interior domelight and I told them it was a Luxeon 1 watt. They said that's what you used for the LCD.

    I also got a 1 Watt Luxeon star ARC4+ flashlight, and two lights on my Mountain bike that are also Luxeons. They are really nice leds.

    Go to Installpath of RoadRunner\skins\ Then select to the folder of your skin.

    Delete file logo.swf

    No honda logo anymore!

    You might anyhow want to replace it with Pontiac logo.

    phase 2 is about to begin.... my touchscreen(capacitive) should be here any day now..... when I take this apart for phase 2 I will be totally disasembling the lcd & replacing all the polarizers/difusers from a non functioning 17" lcd that I have, & be trimming them to work in the proper aspect for this screen to enhance the viewing angles side to side, as this screen right now side to side was originaly up & down

    it works o.k. as-is, looks great from the drivers point of view, but looks "funny" & almost inverted from the passengers viewpoint unless they lean in a little..... I want to get it perfect.... wish me luck.... theres a pretty high probability of toasting this screen in this step final step... but I made it this far without damaging it, I'll have my fingers crossed

    after the touchscreen is done, I can FINALLY finish off the bezel... since it will need work for the touchscreen anyway I never finished it...... the touchscreen overlay will attach to the bezel most probably, while the screen is mounted to the dash bracket.... hard to plan it without the touchscreen in my hands really...... any day now

    did you ever figure out your photoresistor solution? I havn't started that phase yet, but would be happy to start looking now, but figured if you had found the proper resistance that would make the trail and error process quicker.

    Also, did you finish the overlay? I am curious if my resistive will make my screen still not readible.

    nah, still dimming with a rotary knob for now, after the touch is done & the lcd is gutted & the polarizers & deflectors are changed, if it's still functional I'll start to play with auto dimming

    I really hope it lives through the next phase <\crosses_fingers> <\crosses_fingers>

    lol, ok, well I'll tell you what... by then I had better have the solution myself... I can help you for once.

    Oh, but for now... I would atleast put a relay in that switches when you turn you dash lights on so that it dims at night...probably 6 bucks and 20 minutes... you don't even have to find power... just ground...

    I already built a resistor/relay setup.... I've just been avoiding takeing this all apart again because when I do I want to do everything & finish it, don't know how I'll live without it working at all for a whole week or so!!!....

    I've been spending all my spare carputer time skinning & finishing off my roadrunner setup, I've ben doing some things custom for my screen setup & setting up iguidance & stuff... did I ever mention how nice it is to have this much screen real estate

    Ya, it must be nice. I thought about modding the 14" on my laptop so that it could be in-dash, but in a 2 door standard doesn't offer a ton of space to put an elongated screen to which I am allready going to have to relocate my heater controls so that I can fit the 8.4 in there cause my last setup had a 7" wide.

    Now I play the waiting game. I only have 16 of my 18 led's for now... and I don't have my new 8.4 yet, so I havn't bought the aluminum yet either because I want to size the screen up when I get it. I got the message that they sent my screen today... so as soon as I get that I will be getting back to this.... the waiting is killing me!!!

    ok, so I got my photoresistors to test with. I found the proper resistance... then reality set in... they are backwards. Did you have a solution for reversing the effects of the photoresistor? More light = less resistance... less resistance = less light on the drivers. I have searched and not found anything to help create a circuit to reverse the effects of this... I thought I might try the12volt.com... but I'm not sure what to think.
