    OK! I got a lot done this weekend!!! The carputer is now fully operational, but I am waiting on my new car amplifier to come in. Right now, I'm using a really small 4ch 18w clarion. The new one is 50W per channel and much higher quality.

    Here is the before picture:

    Here is the carputer installed into the space where the radio was. I used tie straps for easy removal when needed. It's a pretty tight fit to get all of the cables in place, and the carputer wont be moving at all.



    Here is the front bezel temporairly put into place:
