thanks for the compliment and welcome to the forum.
if you put the computer in the center storage compartement you shouldn't have any issues but i would put an exhaust vent to get some hot air out of that area. but where are you going to put your sub? :-)
as far as closing the top over the computer, no issues there. the top comes to a 'v' when it's folded so it doesn't cover the computer completely, it still allows plenty of air flow.
personally i would bite the bullet and toss the stock h/u. i'm not a big fan of the goosenecks, i think they don't really do any car justice.
herre is the new installment of my computer and audio system:
I'm brand new to this mod stuff but it looks amazing. I have a c5 and I want to put a double din headunit in. Where/How did you mod the center console to go from the stock 1-1/2 din, din, din configuration. Did you have to buy a new console???
thanks for the compliment.
you should check out the corvette forums' audio sub section: http://forums.corvetteforum.com/zeroforum?id=20
i wrote up a faq over there and it shows how to modify your radio surround for a double din head unit
Aha, thats why i got meself '99 vette too. So ill be finally doing dedicated carputer now that i finally have decent platform to build it in.

I have to say, that even though I am a Ford man, this is one sexy beast you have there :) Great job, luv the attention to detail, and the LCD looks factory! Great....
Certainly a lot one can learn from your install.
Good work, Scott.

I have my Xenarc flushed into my dash and I took so many hours to get it there I would hate to have to get a Lilli bezel and replicate it all... where can I get one??
Where did you get that center piece allowing you to move the climate controls down, allowing a bigger area for installing the GPS unit?
sorry about the delay, i missed this. the transflective xenarc was a special order thing from a group buy on the boards. The company will not do it again unless there is a run of 10 of the exact same screens. do a search and you'll find it.
