Sorry for the delay. Things have been a little busy lately, but this is how far I've gotten... still need to do a bunch of wiring for the PC.
Welp I've had some motivation to get the project to a working state; going to take a little trip from NY to OK. Everything works, and the audio sounds pretty good, aside from very very slight amount of alternator whine (barely audible with music playing), and I have also noticed that there is some "grumbling" when the GPS is active. Not enough to really bother me for now, but hopefully I can get that all sorted out when I get back.
Overall the 06 nav bezel in the 07 GC is a very close match, but not quite perfect. I'd say it's a touch lighter and shinier, but IMHO not really noticeable.
Here are some more pics; I'll post some pics of the PC later on.
Thread moved. Congrats!
Awesome install! I see you got CF running on there. Maybe you can give me a hand loading that up in my car when you get back. Have a safe and fun trip!

As far as the trip is concerned, the PC worked very well for the most part, although, after around 16 hours (of the 24-hour drive) on the way out, and after 18 hours on the way back, the PC decided to just power off. I'm pretty sure it's a heat-related issue, because it started working again once I turned the heat off and cracked the windows to let cool air in, and then disconnected and then reconnected power to the PC.. So I will see what I can do about adding some cooling to the system.
I mean, I did after all cram a P4 in C150, so I'm not overly surprised
7-port USB hub and keyboard in the glovebox, and PC under the passenger seat. Yay.
Hmmm, now that I'm looking at the pictures, I wonder if that duct that runs underneath the seat frame only carries air when floor output is selected. Will have to test that out, that just might be a major contributing factor to the PC's overheating issue. Could it really be so simple? lol
