    Looks great!

    How long of a VGA cable did you use and where did you get it?

    Nice! What's the center console mount made from? And my parents A6 has a similar but deeper pocket that houses the cd changer that looks perfect, just as yours does, but they put the kibosh on that idea quickly

    Thanks for the praise. There are 2 headrest monitors that go along with this system that are installed but I have yet to obtain a 7.5v power supply for them.

    The frame for the lcd is made from wood covered in fiberglass.

    The vga cable is 15 feet and i got it from ebay.

    The flashdrive is 800MB silicontech. I thought it would be faster, but it isn't that much of an improvement. Luckily, I got it off ebay for around 100 bucks.

    I am going to hide all the cables that are coming out of the cd changer compartment so you'll never suspect anything to be in there.

    yep, real nice install. Since you don't have a headunit i take it that your controlling the volume through winamp directly? ie: computer sound > amp > factory speakers. It's good to see some people use this method instead of trying to find an aux in from there factory/aftermarket deck.

    VW Bus - 10.4" vga lcd. Loaded with same software as above.

    I like the install in the back - thats what I am plannig to do how ever I have one question. How exactly have you mounted the boards in there. Did you get a plinth and cover it etc or did you just go for it ? If its the later are the secure ?

    nice job

    very nice install. i was looking at your copilot shot and it looks like you modified the code to include buttons to control winamp. how did you do that? what files in co pilot did you have to change. also did you experience any flickering with the opus power supply. i've noticed a slight flickering with mine. i changed my ground location and the flickering decreased but it's not completely gone. any ideas?

    thanks
