    this is destinator gps on a composite screen... I find it easily readable, but I would still rather a vga.



    commodores have got big glove compartments lol. Notice how I can just break chunks of plastic out with pliers... imagine old bud with the 355 ferrari doin that?

    Monitor bolted to a tape with some sheet metal and some old bolts.. Thats some funny **** man.. Seriosly.. you are inventive in all the wrong ways.. The wires hanging out of the glove box look like a bit of a death trap waiting to happen as well. The last pics are prommising although a full size ATX motherboard with 5 pci slots, a agp video card and a pci sound card is gonna suck some serious wattage.... I hope you don't superglue that motherboard to your dash.. You certainly are a bodgy one.. At least it's a Commodore and not a Ford.. I'll give you that..

    you get the MacGuyver award for that one.


    Isn't that screen mount dangerous?


    It's nice, considering the $$$ part. and the fact that what you have in there is actualy worth more than your car... I like it! Good job! Well, except that screen mount, come on man....

    The wires in the glove compartment are just the atx power supply for the pc, they aren't live and even if they were it wouldn't really be dangerous lol.

    And the screen mount is dangerous? what's it gonna do to me?
    Its sturdier than it looks, and once its pushed into the tape deck it cant come out, trust me the roads around here are bumpy as ****.

    I dont really wanna cut into the dash because I'm gonna sell this car soon (might buy a ford ) and people dont really like cars with massive holes in the dash, with the screen mounted like it is there's no issue.

    I don't think it will hurt you, well, maybe your pocket will have to suffer ( I sure don't hope so ), but you could always insert a metal bracket right between the HU and and dash.
