    I personally think carbon fiber can look good in a vehicle as decoration, however what i was saying about the screen mount that the shape of it is what is screwy. Not the fact that it is carbon fibre (although it looks like people dislike carbon fiber or maybe it is that they dislike your carbon fiber)

    All in all a great install.

    darkhalo, great install. I'm new to this but I have to admit you've done a great job A Honda S2000 has an interior that isn't suitable for any kind of material or drastic install...but you've done a superb work Muy bien

    Im not sure what the brand of the inverter is but its not that great... it creates alot of noise which then gets fed back into the amp.. but i guess that how all inverters are..

    Does anyone know if sine wave inverters make noise also?

    Nice car and install are those Infinity speakers?

    If you ground the Inverter or the case of the PC to a common ground that your stereo and amps use the noise should clear. I had the same problem it was anoying.

    My 2 cents

    I got a question I dont see here...were you able to install the screen where the stock headunit is? or is there no room? I'm lookin for a dash and center console for my mid engine 2 seater sports car, which the cockpit of your car looks to be perfect...

    My first screen was a lilliput inside of a indash inclosure form digitalww.com but i wasn't able to use it because there wasn't enough room for me to shift gears.

    So i had mastergrade.net build me a custom enclosure that would meld into the dash.

    Just to make sure... there was nothing behind where the screen is now.

    Yeah those are infinity Kappa 60.5 component speakers.

    Right now i have the a 4gauge cable connecting to the chassis.. going to a spliter thingy that gives ground to my amp and my inverter..
    The only thing i have not grounded is the computer. Im going to try that next.. if that doesn't work then im going to buy one of those power noise filters...

    IF that doesn't work then ill just build mastero's 4.5 powersupply...
