    Hey buddy can you some more details on how you installed the lilliput? looks like you got rid of the stock frame, including the buttons, and used a double din instead. Hmm why did you have to separate the screen from the motherboard etc?

    The screen itself is not attached to the motherboard (look at the first picture on this page)

    A switch wired maybe between your fuel pump wire or similar that prevents the vehicle from being started. I would say starter wires but theifs can usually bypass those. Hit the switch before you get out the car.

    Very clean install!

    How does the navi up front & videos in the back work?

    Also, what kind of soundcard are you using? I'm using the 5.1 from my Via M10000 and that's just enough for my fronts, rears, and sub output. I bought a Roadie but that made the sound very weak...

    I use this video card from nvidia: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121193 As you can see, it has a VGA and component video output, I connected the component video output to the headrest RCA line, and the VGA to the LCD in front, and I use the Nvidia control panel to set it up as dual monitor clone mode, and set up the secondary display as full screen.
    For sound, I am using the Sound Blaster X-FI (Music), it is connected to the analog input on the Z5500.

    did you do anything extra to the pc to keep it from shaking?
    No, I just put the seat on top of it, and it does nor move at all, it is a very tight area as you can see, because the case is a little big (this is a micro-ATX case by the way).
    I don't think there is much you can do about the heat, you just have to deal with it. I have 2 fans inside the case + 1 for the processor and ventilation holes in front of the case. So far I haven't had any heat related issues

    Finally tinted my windows on saturday. This will keep the thieves away hopefully and give me some privacy.
    At night, you cannot really see what is inside, it is totally dark from the outside. I went with 20% tint (front and back), although the legal limit is 35% in Maryland. I think the car looks better with the tint on anyway.

    I replace the mouse with a touchpad I bought from amazon, easier for me to control the computer with a USB touchpad mouse.

    Also relocated the Control POD, I removed the cup holders and put the control pod there.
