    Nice work. Interesting car as well. heh. Anyway, so you should put up some more pictures other than just the general things. Like carputer mounted, a far away shot of dash and any other work you did. Looks good though!

    Will Do when I get my N70 Phone back from warranty. Without a camera ATM !!.

    The interesting thing is. There is a lot more work involved then when you first plan this out.

    haha Not for me man. When I started I also did like 4 other projects in the process including a dual battery trunk mount, rear custom dash, redoing seats, and redoing wiring. That's why it's been taking me forever. heh.

    Yes there is a console switch installed (hidden) out of the way so I can switch between HVAC and Computer inputs. Although the ford system overlays the HVAC display when you press a button on the dash or change the volume.
