    [quote]wow nice ride and nice setup man! i'm also planning to make a case out of acrylic...the biggest unknown so far is how to mount the slot-loading dvd-rom vertically and have it look kewl. also not sure how to attach the usb soundcard to the bottom...velcro maybe. [quote]

    V E L C R O = solves almost every problem

    btw, as a general comment has anyone else noticed the general tendency us carputer guys have to want to take apart and re-do an installation as soon as it is working? I had that happen with my first (glovebox) install. No more than 3 weeks before i had a new plan
    It's true! I just hope i wont get any other ideas while im doing the fiberglass! I want some free weekends finally!

    Great install. How did you mount the LCD?

    Thanks for the http://www.performance-pcs.com/ link. That is a great site for us custom guys. Case looks good too.

    I also am fiberglassing my trunk for my car comp. and sub and am documenting the process for a tutorial web site. Can't wait to see how yours turns out. Perhaps we can share notes.

    Ummm one more thing.... Why the Land Rover skin? That isnt a land rover is it?.....

    later, moltensilver

    I didnt Yet! Updated with two new shots of the finished fiberglass enclosure for the amps (instead of the spare wheel ) & interior led install.

    Now all I need is to replace my factory pedals and those picture will look so much better!

    Also finally upgraded the audio!

    Front: JL XR650 CSi's - Components
    Rear : JL XR570 CXi's - Coaxials


    Fronts and rears!


    JL 300W/4 Channel amp powering the soundstage.


    Shipping as we speak. JL 12W6v2 D4 sub

    Next purchase on the list is JL 500/1 amp for the sub!

    I've already started sound deadening the trunk for it

    That is awesome! However you can't go though that much trouble building a computer enclosure for the trunk and not molding the screen into the dash Its against the law I think

    Just curious, is the screen capable of flipping back into that "pocket" on the top of your dash when not in use? That's a great anti-theft solution if it does. Nice install, really clean, I love it.
