    Carpet matches PERFECT!!!

    I cut the bottom of the touchscreen housing off to remote mount the buttons

    Early stages of molding in the screen, and so far coming out REALLY GOOD

    As you can see in the pictures cut the bottom off the screen that houses the buttons, then cut a notch in piece on the bezel to mount the buttons roughly perpendicular to the screen!

    Have had a carPC in the xB now for the better part of 2 years, the current setup I have now I am really happy with,...right now though I am playing with new front ends particularly Road Runner/Ride Runner. Streetdeck has served its purpose but it seems development of any kind for it has pretty much vanished

    The total build/installation time was roughly month and a half
