    If you missed the worklog, you probably missed monkeyracer's "Favorite Thread EVER", too, and it's priceless stuff. If it doesn't bring tears of laughter, you're much too serious . . .

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    What is a little funny about that post is that my worklog takes up half my signature...
    hahaha yea I know.... i hardly pay attention to the sigs, my fault. Stop calling my car Derange-o, there is nothing derange-o about it.... well except the fact its a big SUV with no storage space, no space for cabling and happens to be a dodge dakota and a caravan smushed together, other then that its a normal car, lol

    That's what I called my GF's old Durango, and now every single Durango is heretofore known as a Derange-o.

    Shoot, the PT is practically a Sebring, Neon, and a little dakota all mixed together. Chrysler likes to mush up their cars to make something slightly different.

    What size screen are you looking to put in there? I know a 7 will fit easily, but I had to shoehorn the 8 in there. You might look into the transreflective screens, especially for when you drop the top..
    Using a Xenarc 702tsv. It was definitely worth the extra cost for 1000 nit, and yeah it makes a helluva difference in dierect sun. I got into this because i had a Pioneer DVH-5700 that I could just not see- among other reasons, lol. I hacked the dash panel apart some and just surface-mounted it for now using the case the screen came in like a clamshell, with the dash panel in between the two pieces and some longer screws. It fits perfectly between the rockers for the windows and the button panel below. I need to figure out what to do with the holes from the OEM radio, and really need to mount it better. Biggest challenge right now, though, is getting the sound right in the vehicle- tough to do with the drop top. I'm going to have to get an upgraded sound card with better drivers; problem is I really want a pcie card that's slimline and will fit my case, and I am demanding RCA plugs too so my options are really limited. These little miniplugs have a terrible way of falling out/getting loose, etc. my other big issue is radio. I'm installing XM next week.

    Have you done any performance mods on yours that you liked more than others?

    Well for the Radio, you could get the HD solution, which will also get regular AM/FM channels. Works 100% with the CarPC setup.

    I use a seperate deck for audio, partly because there are times when I'm going somewhere for a very short trip, and don't see a need to power up the computer. It resumes from hibernate in about 20 seconds, so it's not a big deal, but there are some times I just don't need the computer on. I also wanted the better audio processing and equalization the deck provides, and I get to keep AM/FM/XM and CD's (if I don't want/need to power up the computer.)

    If you can post some pics of what you have so far, I can try and help suggest what to do with your bezel. Where are you putting the PC? I haven't really seen the interior of the 'verts and I'm not sure where anything would fit.

    I haven't done any performance mods to the car yet, mostly for lack of extra cash, but I want to do something with it soon. There is just not enough power right now. I'm not wanting a crazy 1000+ hp car or anything though, just want to add maybe 50 or so horses (supercharger or turbo) to give it that little extra kick.

    I'll make a new post as soon as I get my damn smithsonian-worthy desktop here talking to my camera. LOL. Funny but my carputer has about a bazillion times more transistors in it than this one....

    I just finally ordered the touchpanel for the screen. I guess Dynamix had to get pricing from the source for them, and had to wait for them to be in stock. There's a 1 1/2 week lead time plus a few days in the mail, so hopefully I get it before I go to Vegas.
    I also ordered some LED strips, 2 yellow, 2 white, to use for my mirror turn signals, and extra DRL's. At first, they will just be mounted with double sided tape (automotive) but soon will get some custom moulding to make it look so much better.

    I'll be hopefully ordering the Carnetix soon, and if I can find one, a CAR2PC-PIO adapter.

    Lastly, after a little while for the speakers to break in, they are sounding awesome. I love these speakers!
