    No. The bezel has been done for a while now. The amps are installed (not connected though). Uncle is working on making the case for the carputer to be mounted in my passenger side rear quarter panel. My grandpa and I are working on the relay controller board for the A/C controls. Currently that is what is holding the project from reaching completion.

    You'll be in for a lot disappointment when you plug everything in, expecting everything to work just as you imagined, and come to see so many things going wrong all at once.
    Instead, do the install gradually and in small increments.
    If your bezel is done--great! Now put the monitor behind it and mount it.
    If your PC is getting the proper power, plug it in with the screen and make sure you can control it (touchscreen/keyboard/etc.)
    If your amps are in and powerless, run the appropriate power and speaker wires and make sure your audio is working. You could actually start with the amps because by now you'd probably want to have at least music in the car (by connecting a regular CD player to the amp).

    I'm currently waiting for the case to be mounted. The relay is a long ways away unfortunately... like we're going to be upgrading to a PIC with more I/Os.
    My biggest problem is going to be the wiring. I'm kind of afraid to rip the car apart, as its my daily driver. I especially do not want to rip the car apart multiple times, as that would mean more downtime.
