    Looks nice. One of my best friends just got one of those cars and was looking at doing something similar (LCD behind that flip up cover). Did you relocate the head unit or just use the computer outputs to an amp? What all was involved in installing the screen in that area?

    i actually have the head unit in the back of the screen. i'll relocate it to the glove compartment once i'm done finalising things.

    check out my cardomain site for a lil of the screen fabrication that i did.

    awesome install man. I can't believe how easy u tC guys have it with the screen install, but none the less still a great install. oh and when I first skin, I didn't like it, but now that I see it in the car, it looks really nice.

    btw, why do u need a gig of ram?

    Do you have a link to where you got that skin from? Downloaded a system error skin I found on here but doesn't seem to be the same "version" as yours.....

    omg.. you're my new hero!!! lol

    I love how that skin looks in our tCs... very nice... I am looking for a good front end/skin and I think this is a winner! (By the day, Don Omar!!! Good job on the music!)

    as soon as I get money for my amps/subs, I will start installing my carpc in my tc soooo.. you'll get some questions most likely if that's ok...

    been doing it for over half a year now, and the car starts up everytime, expect for the one time I left my lights no, it did stuggle a little, but fired right up.

    plus how much does a battery cost? I think I rather spend the 100 or so on a new battery instead of having to wait for the music.
