    That came out awesome! I would love to do that on mine and put the head unit where the ash tray is.. I don't know if I'd have the patience.. Good work.

    Nice, I'm in the planning stages for my GTP and I have a few questions...

    Where did you place the PC? I was thinking inside the armrest but might end up just throwing it in the trunk.

    Do you have a stereo HU running anywhere? Still trying to figure out where I want to place mine.

    Were you able to preserve the steering wheel controls at all?

    Great job though, very clean.

    The PC is in the trunk. This summer we're going to do up the truck with a fiberglassed box in the floor so for now the PC is just sitting back there in an Antec Minuet 2 case.

    Armrest would work if your mobo was small enough. We used a MicroATX board which wouldn't have fit.

    We don't have a head unit anywhere. The PC connects straight to the amps. We retained the steering wheel controls using an SWI-X which was already in the car from the previous stereo. It converts the button presses to IR. There are threads on the board about hooking the wheel controls to a computer through com ports, fyi.

    The molding of the HVAC controls came out perfect! Nice setup.
