    Hey, do you know about those Fujitsu tablet PC's? They were selling them on ebay for like $800-$900. What so cool is they had fully reflective 10.4" touchscreens. The more sunlight on them the brighter they were. I was thinking it would be perfect for your install. You could make a whole CarPC out of one. Anyway, just thought you'd like to know. Hopefully reflective and transflective screens will be coming down in price soon.

    Nice work on the bezel... do you have it installed yet?
    Also, Can your ODBDII interface be called from RR?

    I just picked up a Tweecer/RT and a W/B O2 device and would like to customize something from RR to access them. Being a fellow stang guy, do you have any thoughts?

    Yes the new bezel has been installed. I'll try to get more pics up soon.
    RoadRunner is great in the fact that you can embed just about any program into it... so yes, you can call it from RR. Digimoto even includes the abiltiy to create your own gauges, so you can make it more intergrated in looks as well.

    As I said, RR can embed just about anything, so it shouldn't have any problem running your Tweecer/RT software. I actually had one before but sold it becuase of the lack of support for the 98 Cobra. Seems my year is a weird one for lots of things. From exhaust parts to chip readers/programmers, etc... It should work great for you though.

    Na it's still mounted in the glovebox... With the convertible the only time I use the hvac is the winter and that's usually defrost full blast lol. And I've got toooo many irons in the fire. I'll get around to it one of these days... right now I'm actually focusing more on the normal maint/upgrade of the Cobra itself since it's approaching it's 10 year old timeline...

    It's aight with the top up, not quite as bright as the 7" & 8" monitors... top down... you ain't see'n a thing if the sun is bright and overhead or behind you. lol. Driving towards the sun it's readable.
