    Wow, that's original! I have seen people talking about placing a screen where you have it, but this is the first setup I saw that actually has it there. Is it easy to see from the driver's seat? Do you use a remote or some other way of controlling it? Do the cops like it?

    Yea, I can see it perfect from the drivers seat. I have remotes for the screen, and the tuner, as well as the head unit. 3 remotes, and I barely have a place to put em all. And as far as the cops liking it, well, I am one of em, so I can get away with a bit more than the average person. My co-workers do think its awesome though.

    Great Job Drew!

    I certainly is an original location of the Screen. Yeah! When you get a Xenarc or a Lilliput, you can relocated the monitor for the back passengers. Kudos!

    Yea, i just have to find a way to to get a xenarc or a lilliput to mount in the same way. I dont think they make a housing for that, so I will have to make one, and I dont have a lot of skill at that.

    That's a nice install, good work. I have a '96 Grand Am and I did some measuring and with a little bit of cutting and some HVAC relocating I can put in an 8" LCD touchscreen where the stereo is now. From the pictures it looks like you can't do that in the newer ones though.

    Update, check out my gallery again. Got the case built. Kind of an inside out design. Board is on the outside, cdrom comes out the back of the case, power supply is on the inside.

    Just curious if you have an actual strobe controller like what would be found in a police car or something more like a StreetGlow strobes and controller. The SG isn't too expensive but the real thing is. When I first put my strobes in, I had red and blue like your's. My mom drove up to the house (was home visiting) while it was dusk and I had just finished installing and had them on. She was wondering why there was a cop car in the back yard which was funny because she carried a badge and a Glock...

    Would like to see some more videos of your strobes going inside the car and in the trunk.
