    The only plug that needed to be rewired was the little plug that is used for the lighting. I can try and post better pics of the plugs so you can match them up.

    Everything else plugged right in.

    I've been away from the forum and CarPC's for a little while, and I'm checking in on everything, and updating what's happening with my car.

    I have been torn between trying to trade in the taurus for something newer and more reliable or keep it and continue to fix what breaks with it.

    I don't have the best credit around, and getting financing has been hard especially since I'm still flipped on the loan. (Ya, for this damn car, I owe $4k+!!) so, I'm going to have to fix it then.

    Needed:
    Y-Pipe with catalytic converters, 4x O2 sensors, brakes, tires, 150K mileage tune up.

    The stupid y-pipe retails for $900 plus $250 labor, plus $70 per O2 sensor, and I need 4 of them (2 up and 2 down stream), but I can get them online for $300 for the cats, and about $45 for each sensor, so for everything I need to get the car running safely I'm looking at about $1200 if I change the brakes myself.

    I'll be getting back into the fabrication of the screen, and I think I'll get a new Mobo and a fresh install of XP, just to get everything cleaned up.

    My RR skins have been a little neglected as well, so those will be updated and refreshed and my website will be updated as well...

    I'm still here, and I am still going to get this finished, but slower than even I thought it would be.

    This car has FINALLY been traded in for a 2007 PT Cruiser, so there will be no more updates to this thread. There is still some good info here for someone with this car that wants to put in a Car PC.
