I'd like to start off by saying that I am a stereo-retard so I'm basically only doing the PC side stuff and the guys at the shop are doing/helping me with the rest. Anyway...

2/7/2007 - My Lilliput 7" touchscreen (EBY-701) comes in from eBay. First thing I did was hook it up to test it's functionality. I had a little difficulty getting it to run at the right resolution as it was supposed to run 800x480 but I found it incapable of doing so, so it is currently set to 800x600.
I went to Warehouse Car Stereo which is owned by my uncle and had some of the guys help me out. Really cool group of people, you should get your **** done there if you live near Stockton, CA. First thing I noticed on arrival is that Manuel had some skeet skeet on his back...
We got to work. I had Don help me take out my stereo and my console to start getting everything fitted.
Without my stock head unit and console taken out:
What I have to work with...
Figuring out how to best position it... It looks good just sitting on top but I think I want to have it be flush with the dash.
I had them take the screen apart for me to see how we big it would be if we took of the plastic around the edges, etc.
It didn't really help so we put it back together and then they had **** to do so I'll go back tomorrow and hopefully do some more work on it.
