    Dam taht was what i was doing im going to put a screen there behind lexan and water proof it with a 10.4 inch monitor and take a picture of my license plate and post it up there!!! Thats my whole reason of shaving it....i just wanted to see what people would say if it was left plain....but i was working on taht as we speak.....a 10.4 monitor in the rear trunk.

    Got a writeup of how you made the bezel for it? and how you mounted the screen?
    There was alot of cutting involved.....when u take the bezel off there are a plastic reinforcement supports you would need to cut.....well you would have to basiclly cut everything out....and block off the vent...in my case i cut the whole vent at the blockage point....of the vents.
    -you would need to also cut bits and pieces inside and behind the dash so that the 10.4 monitor would fit
    -if you are only mounting a monitor no with no touch screen there will be more slack in the workin area
    -my 10.4 monitor with touchscreen fit like a glove.....once set in place it was supported my 2 plastic shelf like things inside the dash and the metal support of the dash holdes it up.
    -behind the screen u can put a small epia mobo or any small mobo its about a 12in (front to back) x 8in (top to bottom) x 20in (side to side) i didnt have anything behind there yet but i dont have a idea yet.....

    for the stereo system i just read on audiocontrol.com about the LEG sound processor or somtehing can let you run your factory amped system with your own aftermarker amps, subs and so on.....so im reading up on taht right now.
    but for the stock stereo system i like it alot but i plan to upgrade as soon as everything is installed for the carputer and the body work is done....
    ripping the stcok 460 mach audio is to much of a pain in the as that can wait
    right now im jsut working on the body i have stopped with the carputer i want to do one thing at a time because i have notice i tend to wonder off and do stuff i neva get to finish lolz
    Thank for all the input and i'll try to get alot more picture up for the mount and how the body work is comin along....thank you guys agian for lookin at my install!!!!

    i'll ask around i think it legal if the screen doesnt have any motion in it or something ifs its just a picture of your license plate then it doesnt cause a distraction to other driver or something to taht extent. but im not sure it looks illegal to me too hahahah
