    I hate to be "that guy" resurrecting old threads, but I have not really been on here in a while, and just found this thread. I have been searching for the best way to put a PC in my TB,and had never considered this method. I absolutely love it. Looks like the screen is at a perfect height for viewing, and within reach.

    I am certainly not very handy, or crafty, but if I could replicate this, I would do it in a heartbeat!!!

    Actually now that you resurrected it, I see he used foam to make the form, then the fiberglass. I have never seen this technique before, and the results came out very good.

    I have been contemplating removing my center speaker and placing a screen there, and this may be just the technique to use.

    I am going to have to reach out to some of my car aficionado friends, see if they can assist me with this!!

    So the OP's last post was almost 6 years ago. He left his e-mail in the post. On a whim and shot in the dark, I sent a note asking him about the install, seeing if I could get any more better pictures or advice.

    About a week later he replied, stating he had pulled the system out about 2 years ago to replace parts on the HVAC system, and never replaced it. It has been sitting in a box with all parts ever since.

    Mark made a very generous offer if I wanted to purchase all parts, shipped it out immediately, so as to get a shipping quote, and then sent a Paypal invoice.

    The CarPC is on its way to me already, should be here this week, and hopefully installed in the next few weeks!!!

    Super stoked, I will get in depth install pictures and description up as soon as I can!!

    Thanks Mark!!!
