    How do you like the view?

    I've stopped using mine because it was so hard to read with any kind of sunlight. You are at your extreme extents on the viewable side of the screen.

    I want to mount mine higher and relocate AC vents

    The view is ok but if I had to do it over I'd tilt it back a bit. Being so low and so vertical can make it hard to see from higher angles.

    Hmm I might try and mess around with angles sinec I have the dash off before I put it back on. That would be a lot easier than completely redoing the whole dash. Insetting it might have better results then I have on mine. Hmmm

    Now I just need time!

    Otherwise, looks great!

    BTW Where do you live?

    did you do the fab work yourself or send it off for someone else to do?

    nice integration!

    Awesome! So glad to see there are other Grand Prixs on here. I'm in fab planning stages. I just ebay'd another front dash fascia so I won't be scared of messing it up (plus I can drive the car intact while I hack at the other dash piece) I've just got a 7" Xenarc, so I think I can keep my AC controls pretty much where they are, maybe bump them down just a little bit.

    I see youve got two USB's by the butt warmer switch, do you have any other inputs/ access to (optical) drives?

    Is there enough room IN the dash to stick a mini-ITX? I was trying to plan for not running multiple feet of cables everywhere.

    I did all the fab work on this. I did all the fab work on my Eclipse as well. The Dodge was done by me and the owner, I taught him as we went. He learned pretty quickly. He has a new Dodge now that he is slowly working on.

    I recently repaired some stock bodywork of a friend's Ninja ZX9R using the MEK + ABS method. It worked quite well. You can't even tell! The next project I do will use either that or Dynatron Flexible Bumper Repair kit.

    The Grand Prix has an optical drive in the trunk but nothing up front. We figured no reason to spend a lot of money on a slimline drive when it wouldn't be used much.

    There is a decent amount of space behind the radio, considering that some people here have built stereo sized cases for Mini ITX to fit in the double-din space of Mustang's and such I think it could be done although it may be a bit cramped.

    The only wires we had to run up front was the power and DIN cable for the monitor. The computer is in back with the amps and uses short cables between them. Both setups have their advantages but I favor rear PC setups because you can more easily make the PC removable so you can do any bench work when necessary instead of doing all repairs/upgrades to components in the car.
