    Ok, well my project is 'nearing' completion (for now)... so here are some pics taken today. :-)






    What used to be the back seat and what now houses the carputer and all perhiphials. And yes, I need to run a lint brush over it and/or vaccum. ;-) See POST #9 to see what the insides look like. :-)


    And the 10.4" Touchsreen monitor in a custom bezel. And yes, everything done to this car was done by myself. :-)


    Now... I finally have the time to install the Bilstien BTS Suspension Kit and Magnaflow MagnaPack Cat-Back parts that have been sitting at my place for over a month.. lol

    Very cool install. The screen bezel is very clean.

    Thanks Bro. Took me three tries before I was happy with the bezel, but I love it now. btw, answered your question in the other thread about the screen. Later..

    you mentioned something about an auto power module for the laptop, how does that work exactly? did you have to open the laptop up and solder to the power button or the lid close button at all?

    Now my next projects... installing the Bilstien Tuned Suspension Kit (shocks/struts/springs) and upgrading a few of my brake line components. And configuring/customizing the software side of the carputer

    I've ordered a customized version of the ash tray switch panel seen HERE, that way I can remove those red switches below my screen. I'll post pics once it's received and then once it's installed.

    Mine will be laid out more like this:


    VS. the original creator's design below:

    It's finally been made and I should have it on or around SEPT 11th. Here's what it looks like



    If you'd like one made, check out this link

    Thanks to XtremeSteel.

    I'll post pics as soon as I have it installed. Peace...

    /EDIT: My center console is NOT correct for my car. I drive a '98 Cobra Convertible, and the center console is from a '96 Cobra Coupe. I chose to go with the '96 console to rid myself of the two useless cupholds, get the James Bond kinda flip-out cup holder and get the little ashtray area with a flip lid. This allows me to add the aforementioned switch panel and also have a decent cup holder
