    Fisk - awesome setup. Glad to see that you finally got your overhead monitor! The LCD you sold me is solid. I sent it in to get serviced once because the bottom right corner was brighter than the others, but other than that it's great.

    Good luck with the project - everything looks super!

    Is it hard to view this screen while you are driving, i.e. to see gps coordinates? What about using the touch screen?

    One of the pictures makes it look like even when it is closed it partially obstructs the rear view mirror. How far below the headliner does the closed screen hang? Nice install!

    Your project looks really good! COngrats !
    Can you post a pic from outside the car, front view, with the screen closed and opened?
    One from the drivers point of view with the screen opened would be nice too!

    Fisk, beautiful setup mate, congratulations. Just wondering, did you have to do any special setups to get the Opus to power everything? Thanks.

    Hey guys, thanks for the recent replies!

    white 350z, alfabob - Believe it or not, the opus is handling everything just fine, 2 HDDs at 7200 RPM, geforceFX 5200, 2.4ghz p4, and 5 peripherals (4USB, 1 firewire). Occasionally, the computer shuts down with fans still on....could be an opus or heat related issue, but very rarely occurs. I'll be installing a new fan blowing into the case to see if that stops the problem.

    wallaceacura - Screen also pans left and right after it's in the down position, allowing me to point the screen directly towards me. Small fonts / GPS / track titles are easy to read even in direct light. Even better, I can tilt the screen fully towards the passenger, DRASTICALLY improving my sightlines (I'm basically seeing only the side trim of the screen, about 2-3") and allowing me to look right while driving and not see anything on the screen.

    Cris - Pics are on their way. These next two weeks are devoted to various installation and maintenence tasks for the car (30K checkup, xenarc replacement, light collision work , and a well deserved WASH & WAX)
