First of all, the car where it's all in:
Picture of the dash with the custom made bezel. I actually ripped appart an old BMW radio I had laying around for making it:
A little closer:
By night. Notice the buttons surrounding the screen, they illuminate. Also notice the night skin I made for the iDrive skin with spectrum analizer.
Picture of what's in the trunk, the huge DLS amp. and Focal sub behind the plexiglass.
On the left side behind a sliding door sits the PC:
On the left side of the steering wheel sits the CD-DVD unit....

Picture of the amp by night:
Another picture by night. Those are multicolor LED's. Thats why one is green and the other is Red/Blue
If some of you are interested in the making of the bezel, I could make a worklog of it. I have all the pictures but need to sort and resise them.
