    Great minds think alike!
    dude... youre good... that little pic and you saw the 9300 ... lol .. yeah time sucks... one week my oil filter seal busted (FRAM) .... only the 3rd time i have let someone change the oil ... i run mobil1 so ... im ok... i shut it down real quick...scarry.... then same week almost on the way to the alternator shop...my alternator went crazy.... bad bearing.... bought an autozone for 212.00 ... i know i know... lasted 600 miles.... bad bearing.. had the original rebuilt for 83.00 .. and it runs like a top.. now i can get back to the carpc...lol... so where are you puttin the pc?

    the rebuilt alternator failed after couple months... seems they didnt replace all of the bearings.. only the defective one... so I ended up purchasing a new alternator from ford. so far so good.

    hehe, yeah, I have one too and I saw that wierd vent thing next to the page down/backspace buttons and that it had a white top, decent laptop so far... ANYYYYYhow
    I'm mounting my PC in the trunk, I have a vert so there's no seperation from the trunk to the interior of the car (other than the film-like rubber tonneau thing ), wiring was pretty simple, I'll finally start a worklog later on, maybe tonight

    I put a tiny fused block from off the battery from a 6-disc pioneer cd changer with like 4 guage wire into the car, put a distribution block there, and ran 12V, ACC, and ground on the driver's side and another 12V, ACC, ground to the other side for an amp when I finally find one (I have no idea how to find a good amp)

    I know for a fact that wiring for the speakers is going to suck, but I haven't got that far yet

    AND QUIT KILLING YER PARTS!

    bezel update

    ok,
    sanding .. .sanding ... dremel .. and more sanding....

    seems the porpatch does work ok..... its easier to sand than i thought... and the tuff spots i used a dremel.... the cool thing is that the gloss black sands down to a grey that actuall matches the bezel color.....



    the gloss black helps notice the low spots .. looks worse than it is ... to touch the low is onle slightly low .. less than a mm. so im going to fill with bumper filler from bondo .. and sand that down .. at least thats my plan at the moment.



    and one more after a little bit of sanding .. and removing the high spot at the bottom right with the dremel....



    man its hard not to rush.... patience grasshopper..... lol

    looking good, keeping an eye on this.

    no criticism here: personally I would've kept the ac controls low, but I understand you were looking for double-din, and the newer model bezel afforded you that.

    I just wasn't real thrilled with the screen being so low; I think it makes it more difficult to read.

    Anyway, good work, and that was just my $.02.

    yeah ... that was my first thought... so i droped the AC controls down to the bottom .... drove around like that for a few weeks...but when i played around with the mounting of the xenarc screen.... i couldnt keep the sun off of the screen..... seemed i would have had to tint the front window half way down... and thats not gonna happen... all other windows are tinted .so ... i chose the stock somewhat recessed 03' bezel...... would be interesting to know if others have the screen mounted higher and how they are dealing or not dealing with the sun ....
