    Right... Feeling ill this weekend so not done as much as I planned, but still got somewhere...

    First of all I've done the lilliput auto on mod - My solution to Auto Power ON Lilliput screen

    and it works really well!



    and wired the system all up on the test bed to check for one that the lilliput still works...



    Next though is sorting the OS - XP on the VIA 800 is quite slow with Centrafuse (which I want to use for the time being) so I'm going to have to look at my various options to get the most out of the hardware!

    I was using VOICES, next version will use 0l33t's stuff or something custom based on SAPI 5.1, it's easy to program.

    Your install looks BEAUTIFUL! Nicely done. Mucho thanks for taking the time to create your website, which is brilliant.

    Do you know what kind of plastic based filler Chris used on the fascia?

    I haven't got a clue, it's plastic based though. Best thing to do is email him and ask him ( [email protected] ). It's pretty solid, the fascia panel can be bent as if it was moulded that way.

    The in dash screen looks really good though, I am having second thoughts about deciding not to do it that way.
