    FYI, its going into the same car, my bother was good enough to take my car when i got the 09 civic. so when He took over the payment, he got everything with it!, that incuded the carputer.
    this is what the stock dash looks like, un-modded un-raped.

    Are those 12" screens the ones with 16:9 aspect ratio or 4:3?
    I clicked on the links you graciously provided but I can't find any 12" screens in that ebay store at this moment

    If possible can you post the ebay link to the iteem you purchased?
    I am planning to move my screen into the dash and a screen with 16:9 aspect ratio will be perfect for me.

    they might have run out but they are 16.9, try emailing them. damm nice people! they where the only ones willing to offer a solution to my needs. i was looking for a way of using laptop screens, i needed lvds controller boards, they set me up with test boards, programmers, 10-15-20 and even 40 pin lvds cables!, first i found them thru alibada, but then incidentally i bought the screens from them a year later...



    their touch pannels are top knotch too!

    Ah crap - my bad.
    I confused PSU with CPU etc.

    That really spoils my intent.
    Luckily I just shaved so the egg is licking off real easy.

    Me - total fail!
