    here's the computer set up and running on my desk.
    http://pages.prodigy.net/shiltz/100_0148.jpg

    here's the center bezel with the monitor face molded in, I had painted it with it like that but had to redo it as it cracked the paint at the seams of the wood and plastic so I recessed the wood down and filled it in with fiberglass reinforced bondo.

    and here's the finished center bezel.

    this is the small panel below the center bezel, originaly it was the ash tray, it's where I relocated the buttons for the rear wiper, hazard lights, passenger airbag light and traction control, it's also where the DVD drive is going, the power button, and a toggle switch to keep the PSU from turning on/off the computer when I start/stop the car.

    here's my DVD drive, couldn't find screws small enough for the holes in it so I just JBwelded two plates on the side to secure it.

    now for the pictures of it installed in the car, I still need to take the center bezel out and do a little more work on it as I can see some seams, they aren't noticable in the pictures though, also have to get in the dash with the dremel cause as you can see the DVD drive doesn't fit in right so it's sticking out slightly right now.

    here's the shots of the computer hardware, it's all mounted in the center console, the PSU is mounted under the MB, there's a hump in the middle of the console on the bottom and the area's to the side of it was a perfect fit for the PSU. eventualy i'll be making a panel to cover it so I will have a shallow storage area and will have the AV connectors and 12V outlet mounted on it as well, the monitor will be hardwired at that point too, using the cigarette adaptor is just temporary.

    and last is a shot from the back of the car so you can see the sub box.

    the stock stereo and the rear wiper/traction control/hazard light buttons used to go in that space as well as a little storage area, this is what the dash used to look like.

    I bought the panel for the factory navigation system and modified it to how it is now, here's what the factory nav panel looks like, it moves the climate control unit down to the bottom and eliminates the little storage area.

    the amp is an Infinity Reference 611a which puts out 657 watts @ 2ohms.

    I love the car, it's like having everything in one, confort of a large car, the space near that of a SUV, and the perfomance of a sports car , had been waiting for it to come out since I first saw the concept car back in the begining of 03, picked mine up 4 days after the official release of them.

    the subs are Infinity Perfect 12.1.
