    A couple thoughts -

    How are you going to connect the touchscreen to the computer? If the epia will be more than 3' away from the lilli, you'll need to get some extension cables - vga and usb.

    Depending on where the mobo is, you might want to put a usb hub up front.


    I'm guessing you have the software covered because you don't list any.

    A case? Maybe not, but you never know.

    And you'll need some cables (4ga probably) to run from your car battery to the psu, as well as an in-line fuse for said wires.

    Other than that, it generally looks good.

    this is going in a 2006 civic SI.

    i beleive i have more then enough room to mount everything in the glovebox. then ill finish everything off with a panel to over e verything possibly mount some usbs in it etc. when i send my dash to be coated after im done mounting the lcd casing to it, ill send the glovebox cover also so everything matches.. at least thats the plan so im hoping that i wont need a vga extension cable etc. if so i can pick one up local pretty easy. im definatly gonna need a hub when i start adding stuff..

    as for wiring, i was planing on using a fuse at the battery then 4 gauge to a distribution box. (as of yet im not sure if i can use the factory amps and speakers. worse comes to worse, ill have to put in a few amps i have laying around, which then ill swtich from 4 gauge to 2 gauge..

    software wise, ill be running xp pro(have a copy already). with a front end of either frodoplayer, centrafuse, roadrunner. im not sure which gps software im running yet. or which is best for what. i need to read more :P

    anyhow it sounds like im off to a good start. anyone know a good place in chicago that does plastic coating for a good price? lol
