damn, that screen job is impressive!
Basically done, I took some pics tonight, I never got any before shots only after shots. And its night time in the pics, but I mainly wanted to show off the touch screen (12.5") ELO... The computer under the center console mounted, and all guts are inside the dash. Nothing is exposed at all except a keyboard (w/trackpoint) that sets under the seat unless I need to do some real typing...
HP e-pc 933 Mhz

USB CHARGER/19k INTERNT nextel unit cable
USB TV/Radio HAuppage unit (still trying to get it to work right)

Screen is biult into the dashboard (red Button turns on/off screen)
System runs 24hrs a day.
I created a dual battery system (using Deep cycle Marine Batteries)
**System tested 2.75 days with truck off,(Truck still started and system still runnning**
All devices converted to 12v inputs using (variable regulators); except computer which is 19v input, I just bought a used(ebay) 12v to 19 v 3amp PSunit (for laptops). I added a 12v line surge protector.
Still need to tweek and do a slight bit more on the cosmetics, but basically im done...
I took more pics, but system only allows 200k pics, all at 200-220k pics.. dang.
