    No, its hard enough getting to the adjustments on the amps as they sit now. Flushing them into the seat wont help. Plus keeping them low and somewhat out in the open helps with cooling in this Vegas heat.

    What is more likely to happen is one day I'll get a Bit One or Mini DSP mounted in the amp rack under the seat and shelve the Coustic altogether.

    Thanks Hex.
    Some stuff came in so I can now work on my A-pillars. Hopefully I will have these done in a week or two.

    Yesterday I test fitted these in the truck to see how hard it will be to get them in and how well I got the measurements. Was going to use the two part foam I bought but got the wrong type. Ineed a $300 application gun from 3M to use the foam I bought. Not going to happen. So I have to run down to HomeDepot tomorrow and get some $5 foam. Anyone need some $20 3M Foam?

    Skipped the fleece and resin. Sprayed the foam, rough cut it with my mini hack saw, then sanded with 60 grit to get prliminary shape. Next will coat with plastic filler, sand, and paint.

    That really really sucks. I think I have read this same scenario several times on this forum. "I broke the panel while installing". They must be slippery little suckers or people are having too many beverages while working. A 10" Translative, Multi-Touch, DVI, LCD is a nice consellation prize though!!

    Well to be honest I was not being carefull enough. At 6'3", I work better standing up than sitting down. I had just installed the mounting screws, and was flipping the bezel over to check/adjust fitment, when BAM!! it hit the ground. One of my screws was loose and my monitor slipped out.
    My Pixel Qi was a 10" Transflective, Multi-Touch, DVI, LCD. That's why I wanted to cry. But according to my budget, I should have another one by Nov 30 or Christmas. In the meantime I'm getting everything ready for when it arrives.
    I have been looking at this monitor though. 16" isn't too BIG is it? AOC 16" USB Monitor

    Ummm, probably but that's your call! Remember, your eyes are only a foot away from it. If you have to move your head left & right to read text on the screen, it's probably too big!
