    Well I added some pics of my console build. The monitor in there now is only a 5" Mobile Authority which will be replaced with my 7" Xenarc touch. The control in front of the cup holder is my Custom Autosound Sercret Audio. The aluminum cup holder is from a newer stang. Now I just have to make a shifter bezel.

    I also included some pics of the insides of the Xenarc SC-3. I just have to wait for the memory so I can boot it up and install the software. Then comes the install.

    Tell me what you think.

    Damn! You beat me to it! I've got a 61 Falcon I'm putting together and plan to run a CarPC in it. Good job, so far. I'll 100% for sure be checking out your progress. Keep it up!
    I'm not a noob, I just lurk a lot.

    Well all the hardware came in except the GPS.

    All the software is basically loaded:
    WinXP Stripped To The Bone
    XP Lite
    Nero (might as well make use of the CDRW/DVD)
    XP Tools for tweaking
    Klite Codec Pack 2.53

    Don't need much software other than that.

    Now I have to modify my custom console and remove the 5" Mobile Authority and try to fit the 7" Xenarx

    Run a remote power and reset switch.
    Install CCD camera's.
    Remove the Blaupunkt ME-1 and install the carputer.

    Here is a little update:

    I finally got around to modifying the console I made. It used to hold a 5" MA. Now it holds the Xenarc 700TSV. I will probably wire everything up on Thursday or Friday.
