    Your install looks better than the stock dash!!!!


    I wondered if you could give more info on the fiberglass buildup...I need to do something similar, but am a bit intimidated by the process.

    Thanks

    one tip, use disposible gloves and in a well vented area... when i did work with fiberglass, i made a template out of cardboard first and then covered it in fiberglass. turned out fairly good too, the cardboard will get almost as hard as the Fglass and u can cut/sand it also

    That looks awesome!! Would love to know how you matched the texture to the stock parts, as I am thinking along the same lines for my car.

    I also have all the Clifford gizmos on my concept 500 like intellistart and smart windows, you got me thinking about the cliffnet wizard to change settings etc really easily!!

    As has been said above, I would be happy if people asked what all the fuss is about, as they can tell no differnece to stock!

    supurb,

    Henry

    Thanks for the awesome update. The pictures of the computer install with 25+ wires hanging out makes me feel grateful that in the middle of my current install I only have around 10 to worry about. How are those 80mm fans for noise? Are they smart fans?
    Also, I am debating installing a car alarm myself, I am comfortable working with PC's and basic electronics. Was it a pretty tricky install?
    Incredible job man, that is a serious body of work that all looks very professional.

    Awesome install there... I can honestly say I have not seen better!! I am just waiting for the G5 program to be available in the UK then I am going to go ahead with the wizard on the incarpc.

    Ohhh you got me all excited about mine now!!

    Great job
    Henry

    Came back for another look at your install, and yep i'm still jealous. One tip i think would make the screen a little more eye pleasing is to take it out and paint the casing black (instead of the stock silver) to match the trim of your dash. It looks a little weird once i picked up on it now it 's the first thing i see everytime i look through the pic's.
    Still very nice install, congrats.

    Moose: The 80MM fans are ultra quite high output fans. They're extreme quiet but they're not smart fans though. The 60MM fans for the PC case are smart fans. I cut off the temp sensor to make it move more air. The result is they move twice as much air and 3 times as loud as the 80MM fans. I'll probably replace the case fans later. As of now the noise doesnt bother me that much. I recommend that you have the alarm professionally installed. For my install, I made my own channel expensioner, integrated the serial relay control module and mounted the brain where the passanger airbag would have been (97 Tacs dont have passanger airbag. 98-up does). So yes it was a tricky install. It wasnt too bad of an install for me. I've done more complicated alarm installs than the one in my truck.
    Henry Winx: The Cliffnet wizard G5 program is avaliable now but only through an autherized Clifford alarm dealer. But most dealers cant get it yet. The Cliffnet wizard 1.3 can be downloaded at the clifford site. My DEI rep came and installed the cliffnet wizard program in my truck so I dont have the actual setup files.
    Loftus: I know it would look good if I color matched the Xenarc, the CD drive, and the port relocator panel. But I'm looking to resell the LCD the drives and the relocator panel later in the future. If I have 2 Xenarc monitors for sale, 1 has been taken apart and painted while the other one is all factory, never been taken apart. Both work the same. Which one do you think will sell quicker and for more money? As of now the Xenarc screen is in brand new condition, not a single mark on it. I could easily get at least $300 out of it. If it's painted black, I'd be lucky if I get $250 out of it. Same thing with CDRW/DVD combo drive. That's why I didnt want to paint the screen and the CD drive.

    Very nice job!

    What kind of module did you use to control the relays from the serial port?
