    mp3cherokee,

    Thanks for checking out my project and for your comments. You certainly did a good job. In particular installing a 10-inch monitor, and making look OEM. Finding room for a 7-inch monitor is a challenge, let alone for a 10-inch. One thing that you need to be cautious is using a normal hard drive. They tend to go back quickly over time because they are not designed to withstand driving conditions such as temperature extremes and vibrations.

    Thanks,
    dominicanjb

    nice! are you concerned at all about the pc's heat with it mounted in the cd changer location? perhaps at least drilling some vent holes in the bottom of changer "box" area?

    Not to get straight to the point, But how much was the screen? and what resolutions?

    But otherwise, very nice install.. should allow for some interesting things.

    Thanks for the replies folks.

    The PC in the CD changer is actually getting warm, well quite warm after say 1 hr drive home. Yesterday I removed the PC case to test that out but if that fails I shall add a PC fan inside the cd changer unit plastic cover thingy to suck cold air in or push hot air out... not sure yet.

    i was thinking you could cut out large holes in the bottom and in the top lid of the changer box to allow air to flow through naturally. if you have a 1" or larger drill bit, do several holes in a line and then glue in a grill material underneath the lid to give it a nice finished look. then if that still didn't cool it enough, you could always add a couple small fans... just some ideas.

    I think I will do the 1inch holes underneath to start with but as I have cut the dashboard I may as well cut the cd lid thingy
