    That's a sweet swift install - much sweeter than mine. Hopefully Mine will be finished on Saturday. (my worklog: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/work...t-shuttle.html)

    How did you do the custom logo in Centrafuse?

    What screen are you using? Was it a custom fibre glass install or have you been able to buy a double DIN screen?

    sorry for late reply guys.
    @Bxsteez. Creative Sound card is working fine. No hibernation issues with latest drivers.
    But Do not Buy this card. The problem is My mobo hangs before POST. 30-35 Seconds. it seems like USB is overdrawing the power. Rest Soundcard and output is Pretty good.
    I dont know weather it is a Intel Mobo Problem ? or SoundCard Problem ? anyone on forum have Creative USB card with other than INTEL Mobo ?
    For Logo check out this thread.http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/cf-s...s-here-41.html

    @ Michael. In INDIA swift comes with double din. Only Fully loaded version in Petrol (ZXi) comes with stereo. I have Fully Loaded Diesel(Vdi). Installation was breeze. Just remove the Dashboard Panel. Put some 3M double side TAPE. and Put the screen. Fits Perfectly.

    Great news. so its Intel mobo. Now have to hunt for new non Intel Atom Board. Which mobo and proccy u using ?

    PureAudio USB-SA External Digital Sound Card

    3 PIN Y Splitter/Converter
    I need this Y cable to connect 2 cooling fans. coz MOBO has only 1 connector.

    Rocker Switch Blue LED
    Will install this manual ON/OFF switch for short distance driving. Mostly Nr. the Fog Lamp Swicth.

    I'm using gigabyte's new minitx motherboard. It uses the p socket core 2 duo and i'm using a T7100. If i could ever recommend a motherboard it would be this one. The post is amazingly fast. It was a little tricky to get xp installed but using nlite it didn't take too long.

    How are you handling the pop from the amp?
