    Built out the entire power structure, fuses distributers and all.
    Finished building the entire PC, all ready go.
    Windows 7 64 bit with Intel SSD boots in 13 sec.

    started planning out how to cut the foam in the back for the computer.
    Amp and other forgotten items arrive in 3 days.

    Over 30 gigs of video shot so far.

    word of advice, when you the plastic panels over the run wire on the sides of the car make sure not to use too much force. The plastic panels crack easier than you'd think. Dont ask me how i know lol

    You shoulda started up yesterday i was up in baltimore most of the day.. coulda helped you out!

    It worked on FIRST startup. how often does that happen?
    Got battery hooked up
    amp hooked up
    computer and amp bolted down
    wires all cleaned up
    head unit in
    all panels put back

    whats left:
    OBD2 won't work
    bluetooth phone and a2dp wont work
    mic software needs to be installed and then that will work
    backup camera needs to be installed (but we tested it works)
    GPS puck needs to be installed
    Navigation needs to be installed

    Total time spent so far (including shooting video)
    4 hours building PC
    8 hours day 1 - main wiring
    9 hours day 2 - head unit and other install

    hopefully just 5 more hours left for the last parts.
    Oh yea and HUGE HUGE thanks to Stephen Jensen from mp3Car - no way i would have done it without him.

    What im not gonna do -
    install the joycon. Im sacrificing the steering wheel controls because the crutchfield harness didn't expose those wires and im not good enough to figure that out on my own Maybe if i get another free weekend (yea right)

    Heres a closer image
    Awesome I wish I saw this thread earlier. That's a nice looking kit. It would be cool to see the custom online stores like MP3Car to start providing custom dash kits for tablets not just monitors. I can do everything that I need with a tablet without the extra hardware.

    Do you have any updates and pics?
