Well, my Car PC is finally done! Actually, it's been done for about a few weeks now, but I haven't had time to post. I wanted to first start off and say thank you to leemik, for introducing Car PC's to me and all the info/help he's given to me. Mp3car.com is by far the premier place to not only purchase all the things needed to get almost any project complete, but also the best source of info as the members here are not only friendly and knowledgable, but very consistant in getting timely responses.

I saw this one down in Venice, Florida in really good condition for sale but obviously I don't have the money.

you're in boston? i'm right in Chelmsford, about 20 minutes from Boston... i was there today for the walk for hunger actually and nah, i didn't get many pics, my girlfriend was sorta bein... annoyed at me, so we rushed through there and basically just talked/walked most of the time, then my friend got pics and said he was done, so we headed out
LOL, and one of the only reasons why i thought you were from MA was because of the inspection sticker placement stupid reason because alot of states do that, but it just seemed... fitting
