    This is my third CarPC install.. I was initially nervous about putting one in this vehicle because I really didn't want to try and fab a screen into the dash as I'm not that good at it.. Luckily someone pointed out to me that they now make double din kits so that's what I did.

    I was able to fit the entire PC directly behind the LCD.. I ran the GPS and the Wifi up under the plastic piece on the dash.. I also installed a manual reset button / power on button..
