that's a thing of beauty man!
Here's some new pics of my install. Finished off the screen bezel. Looks much better now. Also some of the dock i'm making. I will be using a small solenoid to press the power button. I take my mini out quite often so the y-cable thing was not working. Dock looks pretty crude right now but it is very sturdy. Just need to add on the stereo cable. I have a usb hub under the center console so i only put one usb cable in the dock. It would just be one more thing to get aligned and if i want to add more later that is what a dremel is for. nyway here goes the pics.
thanks. im waiting on another hazard switch which i will use to turn on the p1900 via a relay and a defrost switch which will send momentary power to the solenoid. I can put them in the blank spots i highlighted. it should look very oem like. just need to decide what i want to put on the switches to indicate what they are.
Got the new buttons and hooked them up.Extra hazard switch for remote signal for the P1900 and Defrost button to send power to the solenoid that presses the power button on the mini. Working good. Any suggestions for the look of the buttons. i.e. designs
Had you thought of using icons from your OS or frontend for the buttons. Great integration of the screen into your console and the soon to be modified extra buttons is icing on the cake.

All shortcuts have disappeared.
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
Have you changed your gearbox from automatic to manual?
i was thinking of using my rear defrost button to turn off and on my v1 detector. I like what you've done with these buttons otherwise, I think I will have to consider something similar.
