    You can get more pics from the link in my signature, Im currently having problems with my ISP and will be moving to a new one soon, so they may take the pics offline when I move as im only using my ISP's free hosting to hold the pics.

    Cheers

    Yeah your right,

    The laptop has let the project down, the reason being is that bit was rushed, as once the car was tottaly gutted I kinda paniked!!!, and was like rite the laptops going here, and chopped it out quickly, rather than wait for my friend and his dremmel, and then put the dash back in the car so it was drievable again, there are still a few bugs needing ironed out and I think I will revisit the laptop section and tidy it up.

    its an IBM T21, I got it cheap from ebay as the screen that was on it was faulty, I put a sheet of metal in place of the faulty tft and bolted that to the underside of the dash. The tape is there as an interm fix due to the fact there should be two catches on the lid to keep it shut, unfortunately I never realised until it was bolted in that one of the lid catches was missing and the bottom half of the lapop was rattling so the tape is keeping it in place for now.



    I can remotely turn it on and off from the origional radio stick control on my steering wheel I had hoped to control the volume from that as well but I buzzed out the rubber membrane wrong, so the volume up and down equate to w and / on the keyboard :|

    I blocked the vents with foam, and put some strong tape over the top. As a result the other vents are stronger.



    The way I look at it is I dont remmber using those vents very often and there are plenty of other vents in the car.

    Whats the first thing you do on a frosty morning when you get in your car????

    You turn the vent dial to windows and get all the hot air beltching out to defrost the windows... Usually by then the car is quite toasty.

    I did have concerns about loosing the vents at first but plenty of other people on these forums have removed the vents in favour of a screen.

    That's not an ordinary Clio anymore. Good job. Couple of wuestions: Why didn't you mold the buttom part of the screen too? Too bad you had to pull out all the dash only to get that panel out...What did you use to cover the vents?
    btw, is that a Clio Symbol?

    EDIT: just seen the vents picture...

    That would've been a little extreme on a Clio...not to mention it wouldn't have looked good.
    I've lost the central vents myself, and I really don't miss them...

    Good question, I havent decided what to do about the bottom part of the screen (or the top), I have a cunning plan up my sleeve I've not looked to see if anyone else has done it BUT, I was thinking of using the vents I cut out, and making a fake front! So that it looks like a normal clio again i.e. I put the fake front on the screen when I leave the car unattended and maybe get a fake front facia of a really crumby radio cassete to stick on it too (or butcher the one that I took out of it but I was hoping to sell it on ebay).

    Someone posted on my gallery comments that I didnt need to take the whole dash out to get the vents out, however try as I did to do that it, I couldnt see a way round it, even with the dash out it was difficult to remove the vents because it was rivited in and also had a lot of the plastic melted onto the main vent conduit/trunking.

    It all came good in the end.

    Some antistatic foam that came with a dvd drive I got, and this heavy duty tape I found in my dads garage.
    Clio symbol ? erm dunno were that is, its not intentional anyway
