    Check my sig...

    I've taken out my dash (Cliamte contol, radio) and left a huge hole there which my friend put a blue screen over. But I will be using a Xenarc. My main questions will be with the wiring, and probably placement.

    Wowowow...lot of work.... When it comes to wiring, you can't beat the wiring that was done with our 350Z. If you live in LA, you can stop by our meet place and check out the demo car. It has 2 external computers and 5 monitors.

    The first comp was place in the back of driver's seat, inside the subwoofer box. The subwoofers and the 2 amps were placed in the trunk. Inside the other subwoofer box, we put a printer and a wireless keyboard and mouse.

    The other computer is then placed in the trunk, top of the subwoofer.

    Your install looks amazing By wiring, I just meant hooking it up to the stock harness and making it work. My car has a separate amp for the sub, and a separate amp for the speakers. For simplicity, I'm just going to be hooking up to the stock amps for now. And that's were the problem will be. As far as placement... there aren't a lot of places in the SC300. Someone was able to shove a EPIA behind the screen But EPIAs won't do for me. I'm going to be going with a mATX mobo, and i'll need a place to put it. I don't like running a lot of wires, so I'm hoping to shove the board into a gutted glove box.

    As for the fabrication, my uncle will finish it

    Yeh, lucky me. He's a mechanical engineer from Russia. That means I have to tell him NOT what to do (like drill holes through my panels, etc)
    I gave him a cupholder to fix, and the result is in my SC300 thread...

    Decided to trash the front of my AC and make that on the computer. But still worried about how I'm going to power the thing and also were I'm going to put it.
