    i dont think u mentioned anything about the audio controls on your stearing whell. just wonder wut you did with them(if anything). i'v heard of thing that let you use those controls with aftermarket headunit and such.

    You can either control you aftermarket HU, with devices like the SWI line from PAC audio:

    Or you can control your CarPC with homebrew devices + software like the one from stevieg or god of Cpu:

    I am planning to do the exact same thing, I have an 05 nissan altima 2.5 S.
    I was thinking of mounting the xenarc the same way you have it, but was little worried about the size, now that I saw your install, that makes me more comfortable. I just need to get that metal bar you had on top, what store did you buy it from?
    -The thing i don't like is that the altima dashboard ( where you mounted your LCD screen), it is a little curvy, which makes the LCD screen come out on the edges of the frame, how you palnning to fix that?
    My solution would be to push the screen a little further at the bottom, making it look more vertical, that way the edges of the LCD will not come out. Also I thing you can see the screen better when it is vertical, is that true?
    -Where are you planning to put your dvd/cdrom drive? I am curious as to where you gonna put it?
    I was thing of getting a bezel and put it in the above compartment and and pu the dvd rom drive, the status led, hdd led and the usb ports.
    How did you power you PC, can you show me some wiring diagram?
    Also where did you cut in the ACC line?
    Thanks, looking forward to the finish projct so I can start mine.

    I got the bar from Ace Hardware. Check the section that has fence post hardware and just find things that will work.

    I have mine so that it is pretty flush at the corners. So the dash curves out mid-screen and then back in at the edges. I think it looks decent this way and visibility is fine.

    When I put it in it will be in the top storage compartment. But I have been using the PC for months and have not really needed it so its not a huge priority right now.
    How did you power you PC, can you show me some wiring diagram?
    Also where did you cut in the ACC line?
    Good question. I actually had a friend of mine that does car audio install for a living do all the wiring. Not sure where the ACC is pulled from, but there is 4awg wire running from the battery to a distro block in the trunk. From there, I have 8awg wire going to the amp, and smaller wire running to the power supply for the monitors and the Opus 150W that is in the computer.

    Hope this all helps.

    Can you take a closer picture of the LCD mounted in the dash, so I can see what it really looks like.
    Also are you planning to fill in the little openings at the bottom ( where you cut)?
    Did you try your headrest monitors? How is the video quality? How did you connect them?
