    Sweet, how does it work for you?

    Do you have plans to hide the hardware and cables?

    Well....good job I guess. It looks alright but you really need to clean it up. Wires are not very attractive. Find a way to hide the comp, wires, etc. Also, putting the inverter under the floor mat doesn't conceal it that well, maybe you could find somewhere else to put it.

    Carputers are never "finished"!!!

    You could possibly add:

    GPS
    usb hub
    dc/dc power
    bondo screen in
    etc...

    Other than that...congrats on getting this far!!
