    sure anytime. Glad to help out a fellow mustang owner. Just curious, do you have a carPC installed? They look pretty sweet in mustangs, especially in a convertable.

    Ah, I did read that thread before. Just didn't put 2n2 together. I feel how frustrated you were with your carputer. I went 1 and a half years without a radio and a big hole in my dash. Originally I was going to place everything behind the dash. I even made a custom PCcase for it and cut out all the metal in there. Turned out it "seems" that there is enough room back there, but there really isn't. I keep trying to warn other mustang owners about this, but sometimes they don't listen and have to find out for themselves the hard way. I still donít have a place for my case. It just sits on the passenger side by their feet. The girlfriend likes it cause itís a nice foot warmer.

    Well if you do decide to put on back in, I can help with any questions. I donít have an install thread but this is what my install looks like. (first 2 pics)

    So. Cal. Meet 2/04/06 Pics @ UCI

    I havenít seen to many ďcompletedĒ mustang carPCs, would like to see more out there if possible .

    That bezel does look great! A/C controls relocated, and ports in the shifter bezel are excellent.. I just may have to try it your way next time around.

    Yeah, if the dash was just an inch deeper, I my PC would have fit and for the most part, the physical install would have worked out.. although I was also unhappy with having the wiring totally in-dash because it made it harder to work on. My hardware selection is a completely different issue, however.

    Do you have more install photos?

    I'm thinking about moving it to the trunk. Originally I had all the wires short cause the PC case was going behind the bezel but then I moved it out so it would be easier to work on. I'm just being lazy not placing it in the trunk and rewiring it.

    I have a few install pictures of the bezel. I have my computer packed away right now cause I just finished moving again and I don't know when I'm going to get it back out of storage. Right now I'm crashing on a friends couch till find a house to rent. I think I've posted some install picks on some random threads.
