    Finally got this finished...did a 21 hour install to get it ready for a BBQ, and everything just came together.

    (yes, by the way, that silver thing next to the key is the power button...as soon as I get a Powermate to hack the internals out of, it's going to be the volume knob, too...)

    Car, just to get it out of the way:

    Location that I found behind the seat, made to house the optional factory subwoofer:


    How the components fit in the box, all attached to a custom bent sheet metal half-case:


    *UPDATE: Wiring Diagram*

    The monitor is patched into one of the Opus PSU's Molex connectors, and all three RCA cables run up the center console, one to the monitor carrying TV-Out, and two to the Head unit.

    The screen mounted in a custom machined aluminum bezel (my friend being reflected), computer booting. Also, another friend (in the passenger seat) and me playing with the computer...note the keyboard sprayed completly black that I'm using until I install my speedpad.


    Well...that's about all I can think of at the moment. I'd love to hear any comments or questions :-) Thanks, forum, for helping make this coolness possible

    lol...longest joke awareness delay ever. finally got it...It's not my fault my library is comprehensive. I didn't think that was going to be my screen shot, but right when I was in the middle of taking pictures at my car-club meet, these three cop cars rolled up and arrested one of our friends for display of speed...quickly switched from taking mp3 pics to taking Bad Boys pics :-)

    Here's a few pics of the system I stuck in my MR2 3 years ago back in 2000. Still going strong but I'm rebuilding the system over winter. 3 year old technology isn't doing it for me anymore, I want a touch screen, I want my DVD drive back in it, definately a GPS with a faster pickup time and I want a bigger hard drive, 40 gigs isn't enough. This new system is going to have the works, it's the perfect time to work on it right now because my car is off the road for a couple months having a TRD widebody kit installed.







    More info at http://members.shaw.ca/baoli/
    I did a quick one day reinstall and moved the PC from behind the driver's seat to the front trunk of the car for the big MR2 meet down in Las Vegas back in April. This time, a whole new system is going in.

    Nice...I've got a picture of your screen saved someplace...I remember the switches next to it. And I've definitely been to your website before...what with the red and green menu items that I *STILL CAN'T READ*

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