    Wow, that camera is pretty crappy. The screen install is great, looks very stock. What are you going to do with the CPU, it looks a little unsecure where it is.

    Be a nice son and buy your parents a decent digital camera. You have a computer in you car, and they're using a 1998 digicam?

    Nice to see another TL install. How did you run the wires from the screen, wifi and gps to the computer? I'm going to run mine down the center console out to the trunk (hopefully).

    Is the front passenger seat "useable" or does it always have to be all the way forward?

    Real clean install!!!

    LOL they bought a sony minidv cam and they usually use that.

    I ran them down the center console to under the seat and yes the passenger seat is usable. I had them under the drivers seat but it would hit the hydraulics for the lifting of that seat so I moved them.

    Yes the coin purse is gone and cig lighter was detached and is now behind the console powering the Xenarc TS.

    The Wifi is velcroed above my seatbelt and the wires run inside of the plastic siding on our chairs and under the drivers seat then over to the computer. The GPS runs along the plastic piece on the passenger side of the backseat that runs along with the step then under the seat to the computer. I need to redo the dash piece its a bit too fragile should have done it all with fiberglass instead of just the base.
