    Great install, I really like how the screen looks. It fits in there nicely.

    How are you keeping the cpu and motheboard cool? Did you put any fans to circulate the air?

    GREAT looking install. I really need to flush mount usb and firewire ports.
    How in the world would you put the special AirPort card in a PC? Mine is a Mac anyway but it's too old to AirPort. I just use a zip drive to transfer.

    Thanks!

    I'm working on that now. I might do an airduct with a fan at the end, and run it to the front or side of thev center console, or mold a fan or 2 on the side or the back of the armrest box to pull the hot air out.
    For now, I just open up the armrest from time to time to let air in.[ghetto] I always got the ac on, and havent experienced any overheating as yet. Been going strong for almost 2 weeks.
    I still have to clean up some of the wires in the box to get more breathing room for the hardware. I'll get to all that this weekend.

    Very nice..

    Looks great! I like your remote with the keyboard, i did a quick google but couldnt find where to get one. Did you get yours online? If so where can i get one, and how good does it work?
    Also great idea on the flush mounted usb, keep it up!

    It works with infrared. It comes with an infrared reciever and hooks up to a free com port via serial connector.

    This tread has all the info:
