    Nice job! Looks like a very clean install.

    I am interested in where you mounted the PC as well.

    The PC is mounted in the boot in the CD changer compartment.

    Just a few more details for anyone that's wondering...

    I opted for a CD player for sound output for three reasons.
    1. This is my first attempt at in car connectivity so i kept it simple and avoid the hassle of an amplifier which i may still consider in the future as i'm learning more with time.

    2. In the event of my PC failure, i can always revert to the traditional CD player

    3. The ash tray is of no use to me as i don't smoke and i was willing to try my first ever fabrication which in my opinion prove a success.

    Thanks for all your comment.

    Hi,

    That install looks great, but it left me with a couple questions.

    Which monitor did you go with?

    And

    What is the name/where did you get the dash kit that the monitor is installed into? It looks very clean.

    I will soon be starting on an x-type install like yours, and can only hope it looks that good
