    NICEEE..

    I can't wait to do this to my 2002 Golf. Trying to decide what parts to buy first.

    Anyhow, where are the AC controls and such? Close-ups? I wish there was a detailed description on what wires to use and all. Is it possible to not take apart the dash to atleast disconnect the stock tape-deck and connect the screen with a stand? (going to fiberglass in June)

    Ah, another thing... volume. What's the best way to connect it all up to the stock speakers in our Golfs?

    Unfortunately, if you have a monsoon vw system it is a little tricky. R32Juhl Figured how to send the signal straight from the comp to the monsoon amp by supplying the amp a 5V signal with the comp input. Read his thread about it. I am currently waiting for a write up on it first before I decide what I should do.

    Otherwise you can get an Aux adapter that turns the CD changer plug in the back to an RCA so you can hook up the comp soundcard.

    My dilemma is to keep the stock headunit and get a single din or to remove the HU and go with an in dash screen. I don't want to get rid of my AM radio though. So it is a little difficult for me to deicde. Also the thought of someone stealing the screen scares me too if it is plain view.
