(That's my word for my addiction..) I have done the huge sound system 24 Speakers in a Single cab 1987 S-10 PU (Named: Sweet-N-Low):
    10 12" Kicker Comps-Stitched, 10 Pioneer 2-way Mids/Tweets, 2 Alte-Lanz Titanium Super Tweets, 1 Pioneer Center Channel Speaker, 1 15" MTX for the bed to pre-fire the bass attack... LOL 162DB!! 210HP 4-Banger, Dropped, Neon, you name it... That was the good ole' days in HS..

    NOW.... HOLY CRAP! If I knew then what I know now.. MAN OH MAN...

    This TruckPC stuff is UNREAL.. I am still amazed at what I want to do with it all every time I get in my truck.. I just replaced the Standard WIndows Startup Sound with the THX Ramp Soundbite... (the OLD SCHOOL ONE - When THX was first introduced.. Not the new one with the train, etc...) MAN.. Makes you almost.. nevermind.... LOL! I LOVE IT.. It is a total blast to work with.. I wne and visted my sister over spring break (I work for a local school district as the Director of Technology), and they want me to open a shop to do these installs for others.. They were tripping.. They want me to do one in ther Nissan Quest and my BRo-In-Law wants me to do one in his 30th Ann Pontiac TA.. Now that would ROX!! Already installed Nitrous in it for him, LOL! He freaked out when he saw my truck..

    This is a DANGEROUS ADDICTION, I tell you that! It is a total blast..

    I will get off my rear and put some more pics up... I have pretty much completed the install.. NEVER FINISHED Tweaking... hahahaha I will update my stats and specs, as well... Added some koolio new twists!
    I closing in on finishing the main parts of the PC.... I am still missing the TPMS system, but that can wait. Also have to have a pro install my screens and redo my dash. I got the processor fan today so this weekend I hope to be installing into my car.

    by the way,
    Its not finished yet, thats why it has a huge crack in it.
    I have to press it down, thats all.
    I have an f-150, cut my bench seats into bucket seats and installed an expedition console.
    what do you think?

    I will alos need to redo my Centre Screen Bezel.... It is coming out of it's grip socket.. guess someting broke loose... I have also ordered a POL P/S to drive my USB/Multi Card readers in my dash - I put the, in the little cubby hole under the cig lighter area - lower dash... Was just perfect to run all my USB devices in the dash - Wireless, GPS, Multi-Readers and Bluetooth. Also worked/tweaked in getting my phone integrated.. Works fairly well, still a little slow and echos... Awesome to talk totally handsfree and see who is calling!! LOL Never take my phone off my hip. Also got all the Bluetooth tethering for internet access on my data plan completed and automatic. Werks great! More pics and updates, VERY SOON!

    If you are talking about the centre seat chassis where my PC slides in, I used a Dremel Cutter/Grinder, Hacksaw and Metal Cutting Saw bit for my JigSaw. That mertal is very thick and tough.. Alot tougher than I expected. Took me over 2 hours to get it how I wanted... Did not have the Dremel Tool involved at first, was VERY rough!! haha

    My PC case already had a slot for the DVD Burner... It also has a plexi glass cover on the front that glows blue at night.. really kool effect!

    Looking good so far. Gotta love trucks, and the computer makes it that much better I still need to get to your point with all the integration features, mine is just a PC and a screen for the most part lol, heck I still have to turn mine on manually.

    Center seat is looking like a great place for the computer, mine is being ditched for a subwoofer. At the same time the base for my seat can't really be cut up to mount a computer or anything like yours.

    Looking forward to seeing more pics, specially of how you do the dash.

    Thats why you design the case around the frame of the seat. I got rid of the middle seat on the second row and it came with a metal piece that has to stay there for stability when you flip the seats up. I simply bulit the PC case into that metal frame.
