    haa, i was actually surprised you used the two cat5e cables. never really thought about using them to do that:-P

    are you just running straight windows xp with large icons?

    slick. Monitors mounted too low for my taste, but thats almost always true.

    Tupperware is a bad thing to mount a computer in. that tub can build up a tremendous amount of static charge and easily fry your machine. I'd think about building a better case for it, something you could mount to the side in such a way that it wouldn't easily be seen perhaps?

    Interesting set up. Gave me a few ideas for my own setup.

    Are you worried or have you taken measures with the static in a plastic container?

    Also what are you using for inverter and on/off control? Your car pc sounds similar to my plan. Except I'm debating the touchscreen route.

    EDIT: While I was lookin' at pics, Fluffy was writing what I was thinking.

    I really like the touch pad idea in the ashtray I have a Xenarc on the way so I won't need a touch pad but thats very cool never the less. Also I really like your tuperware computer case I think I'm going to do something similar. Its nice to just pop the top off your case plus make it a little shock absorbant. Thanks.

    How hard was it to extend the faceplate? What kind of stereo was it?

    thanks for all the compliments, yes i am just using win XP with large Icons.

    Im not too worried about the case....the mother board is grounded. Its in as much risk as a regular computer case.

    Extending the face plate wasnt hard but you should have some soldering knowhow before you do it, the face plate is kensigton
