    On a scale of 1-10, how is the quality on that screen?

    I would say it's an 8, it's pretty bright but the glare from the sun makes it hard to see during the day. That may be partly because the car has glass t-tops and I don't put the shades in. It also sux that it doesn't take a VGA signal so it makes it rather hard to read. A bigger screen will make it's way in there eventually.

    Looks good, got anymore pics of the front trunk install? Good luck with the fitament on your widebody!

    lol... when I made the site three years ago, I was using a crappy 800x600 monitor and it looked fine... haven't had much time to redo the site so I never bothered to fix the buttons. There's a few more pics of the trunk install on the website. Looks cool at night with the blue neon. I don't know if you were there but when we were in Vegas, we had a little cruise down the strip with about 100 MR2's and ended up at the Bellagio. I had quite a crowd around the car looking over the PC, the HID projector headlights and I had the Valentine dancer running. I guess people are attracted to bright lights or something cuz there was barely a crowd around my car during the show and shine at the LV Speedway. People were wondering how they could've missed my car at the show and shine... lol

    Nice industrial looking power switch I reckon ... That thing needs to be struck with the heel of the hand, JC style ...

    If you do end up turning it into a volume knob - suggestion: Leave it as a push button too - ATT(enuate) function, sweet ;o)

    On the offchance you were actually asking me, as we're in my project thread ;-), the quality of the screen is better than expected...it has a decent viewing angle, and the brightness is top-notch, even during the day I don't have problems using it. However, it is a low-resolution screen, and uses a TV-out RCA composite signal, so the resolution isn't enormous. However, click the screenshot to get a much higher resolution version, and judge for yourself...I think media engine looks perfect on it :-)

    Am I using a what for a huh? I am not understanding a few of your nouns. *edit* I am not using S/PDIF. I am using a splitter to change the 1/8" jack into two RCA cables.

    Excellent Idea...I had the same...I'm actually going to put the internals of a Griffen Powermate in it, which encorporates a click function as well...wasn't sure what I was going to have it control yet, though.

    You need to get that aluminum bezel anodized. If you have it "hard" anodized it is REALLY hard to scratch.
