    Per your install, i think u did a great job modding your dashboard. Your bezel kinda looks askewed a lil' bit. I aint knockin your hard work bro. Its just what i see.

    Why do u want a carputer when u only put 20GB in. Im guessing GPS was one of your goals.
    Thank you !
    I am planing to buy a 100GB HDD next month. Of course 20GB HDD is even less than minimum in my case (I am a DJ also )

    GPS is also one of my goals because I am traveling a lot all around Canada.

    I can not find some pictures from the bazel making process, but I will try to explain with the pictures I still have:

    First of all I decided that I do not need a buttons from monitor because I have a remote. The main PCB board of the monitor originally located at the back and it is parallel to the screen. I locate it with 90 degrees to the screen. To the place instead of buttons I installed a front panel from regular slot load DVD drive (Panasonic or some similar one), glued it and after that made a painting. On the pictures you can see how it looks like. Sorry for my english. And if you have any questions please ask me.

    I removed a faceplate from DVD-Drive (thing platsic part) and integrated it in appropriate place in the LCD bazel. So I used original plastic faceplate from the DVD Drive. I will try to find out where is hte pictures of that process, I should have some.
