    oh ... ML430 ... you could also use the front of the lilliput screen and just use bondo to cover up all the button holes ... i've seen a few folks do that. but then you're ruining your lilliput casing so you can't ever take it out or move it to another car ...

    the wood frame turned out nice i thought ... but be careful if you go this route ... make sure you get the thing square before expoxying it in.

    Very nice job shakes. One question I would like to ask about the wood LCD frame, does it make it seem too recessed in the dash? What I mean is you now have the LCD further back in the dash, only the thickness of that outter lip on your frame. But is that noticable? If you were to do it again, would you do it the same or try to get it more flush with the dash?

    Thanks ... just looked at your site. I like your jeep. I had been planning on lifting my jeep when I needed new tires, but I got married and away went my money.

    Of course I could have bought a lift for what I've spent on this system ... but I'll use the PC more as I don't know anyone who 4 wheels around here ... so i'd just be a poser with a lift.

    I'm not really sure. I think what I might do is try to put it underneath the steering wheel where the trim stops to let the steering column through. There's some room there and it would hide the IRs pretty well. I need to put both my keyboard and my lcd receiver somewhere, so that might be a good spot. We'll see.

    Well, the recess is more than i would like it to be. The first test frame I made had a real small recess (1/8" i think), and it would have been real nice. But I had a guy from work cut the wood for this frame (my dremel died) and asked him to cut it to the same specs as the last ... but he made it a little thicked than I asked cause he thought it would be too frail. Eh, he did it for free so I can't complain.

    But it doesn't look bad, and it's not very akward except when you're trying to hit a button in the corner.

    You definately could make it less recessed if you wanted to.

    I may attempt to install my screen like this when I am at that stages (FAR from it). I have access to all kind of tools including a router (your "real tool", plus I have a dremel and a craftsmen all in one cutter which is just a beefy dremel IMO). I want mine to be as flush as possible, but I really like how you didn't destroy the Lilliput case as others do. Look for me posting a finished project some time this summer/fall

    Where did you get that CD2Firewire PCB? Does it use slimline connector or standard IDE?

    Sounds good kupop ... you might not be able to see in the pics, but i did add a routed edge to the bezel ... so although it is recessed, it doesn't seem so bad cause of the smooth edge. If you made yours a little less recessed and had the routed edge i think it'd be perfect.

    i bought it from some guy on this board. you can also get them if you buy an external IDE Firewire box (the things made to convert an internal HD to a portable external HD) and then just take out the converter board.

    They usually connect to IDE ... it was a little bit of a problem on mine, cause i havemy slimline to ide converter ... but when i put on the ide to fw adapter board it blocked the power connector on the slimline adapter. i fixed this by just using a short IDE cable to connect the slimline adapter to the fw board.

    Good to see you use Bondo "Glass" instead of just the regular pink stuff... Looks great, Shakes... well done.
