    Good, we almost got everything installed and JC is trying to finish up the last of the installation. About 4 of us showed up to work on different parts.

    P.S. Kevlar Dremel on a screw makes alot of sparks. lol.

    - -Does anyone have a screen they don't use or I can borrow to do a test fit in my dash? Is there a place here in town where I can buy one from?- -

    no one here in town will sell the VGA touch screens like you need for this project.

    You can get the measurements from most any retailer or here on the forums.

    Specifically which screen are you wanting to use?

    - -Well, dumb *** sleepy me fried my 8" last night. However, because of my unique dash opening I found a 8.4" widescreen that is a perfect fit for it. it's just that I am so close to getting this to work that I can taste it. So my plan was, after I found out that I had the monitor cable connected backwards, to install the car pc to get something going. Got the screen going, then plugged up the extension we bought from Altex and we must have gotten the wrong one because when I used it on the monitor the screen last a lot of brightness as if the extension cable was not able to carry the full load or something. So at this point since I am without my 8" TM-868, I am going to finish the mounting of the car pu in the trunk and uplaod more software until my new one comes in or I can find someone local with a screen. Me = dumb *** right now.- -

    ...Newbie here. VERY interested in meeting up locally and seeing other's projects/work. I've got ALOT of experience in PC maintenance/repair, automotive repair/modification (we have several Supras and belong to most of those automotive forums), etc.

    Recently Dynamated our 1991 and 1994 Supras, to deaden the road sounds and improve sound quality inside the cars. Not an Audiophile, but do like clean/crisp music/video and the occasional "thumping."

    Anyways, I am up for joining the local meets and getting more ideas, before I go spending the $$ or doing the work. I am EXTREMELY mechanically inclined and am always willing to help others (tho not always available). I'm even okay with bartering my talents for someone else's (and hardware).

    I work in Plano and live in The Colony. Working on finishing an engine swap into my Supra this weekend, but would liek to meet soon. My biggest issue/ailment is planning the next project, before I'm finished with the current one , which is why I am here.
