    I'm actually thinking about doing a dual-screen install.. For that, I'd first have to change my motherboard to one that has 2 VGA (or 1VGA + 1DVI) ports, and then put the 2nd screen where my OEM radio currently resides. The top screen would be for navigation, while the bottom screen will simply control everything else.
    Anyway, my EBY701 is kind of a pain.. Sometimes when I prop it up in the mapbox, the screen shuts off, so I have to wiggle the connector behind the screen to get it back up. I've been looking for a replacement screen, but nearly all the others have their buttons on the bottom. My 701 fits JUST right.. If only there was a transflective version.. ::sigh::

    As for golf's fabrication, I think he did a good job but I wouldn't feel comfortable with the fact that the screen would be in open view 24/7.

    Painted Brake Calipers

    I painted the brake calipers on my Speed 6 and painted the center of the wheels (they were chrome) to contrast better with the brakes. I think it came out pretty good.

    I don't have it anymore. I traded it for a 350z roadster. I do miss that red, but my Z is the great LeMans Sunset Orange.

    Nice! Do you have a link to your new install? I'll look for it, and maybe I'll find it before you post.

    Haven't put anything up yet. I'll try to take some pictures. I'm having difficulty deciding how to permanently mount the screen. Just temporary right now.
