    Originally under the center seat was a storage box. We removed it and there is plenty of space on the sides for air to come in. We don't think there will be heat issues but I guess we'll find out this summer. If there are then we'll end up putting some small low-noise fans in to help move air through underneath the seat.

    Well, so far no heat issues at all. I took the truck on a roadtrip to Denver, about 8 hours away. Everything worked pretty good. The foam we placed around the DVD drive seems to have worked, because we went over some pretty bad roads and the DVD's played flawlessly with no skips. A few more mods, like an in-line volume knob is needed, but it looks so sweet!

    I think the next step will be a volume control and integrating GPS into this.

    For sure a built in GPS, and hopefully a manual volume control as well as flush mounted USB and RCA hookups on dash to the right of the screen. Also a roof-mount antenna for FM and TV, so the media-pc has it's full capabilities.

    On another note, the PC didn't get above 32C even after 8 hours of MP3 / DVD's playing.

    Thats the first "big" screen install that did not look like a total hack job. Congrats.

    Volume Control

    Wired in a sterio potentiometer for an analog volume control. Maxed out the PC's volume, put the amp gain at 0 and its plenty loud and no line noise! Plus we found a nice knob that perfectly fits the size hole from the cigarette lighter.

    Will be fabricating a mount soon with on/off push and backlit for power LED.

    Next big item is an 5001RS alarm/remote start/keyless system. It's arriving tomorrow
