    The 'S' looks pretty low as it is, and I'd rather spend my money on the car PC

    I've now run all the cables for the PC and speakers, man it was a pain to run the speaker wires into the doors...but its all done now.

    Now I just need to get the computer and amp to work. Seems the amp is dodgy and wont power up...gotta love ebay

    Having major USB issues with the MII-10000. I can't even get an optical USB mouse to work. The red lights on the mouse flash every few seconds, so seems like its not getting enough power. Maybe the M1-ATX cant handle a 3.5" drive and powering a hub and screen up the front....

    Wish I had it all done for xmas, but will have to wait til next year now.

    Hey Jarrod check out Strathfields. Over here in Perth they have a 560w 4 channel amp for $98 (down form 189) nothing special but good enough for what you require.

    Also the super screen is the Ebay from from hong kong right? What kind of import tax were you slugged with? Total cost all up?

    Also could you post the dimensions of the screen when it is removed from its enclosure?

    Cheers

    I'll post the dimensions when I get back home.

    As for import tax, I wasn't charged any at all. Same for most Aussies from what I've read.
    Total cost of screen came to $272 AU I think

    I will check out strathfields when I get back to Melbourne, hope they still have that sale on!

    You have removed the screen from is enclosure correct? I have 19.5w x 11.5h to play with and no fabrication skills whatsoever so I am hoping this thing just fits

    simbot: I did have the LCD removed from its case, but have since put it back together for testing. I will see what measurements ive got lying around, as there is a good chance I measured it while making the temp facsia for it.

    Uzi: The M1 was purchased on these forums in the classifieds section. Got a good deal as I also purchased the MII-10000 Mini-ITX from the same guy.

    Yeah its all very simple, just gotta unscrew a few screws and disconnect a few ribbon cables, and its all pretty rugged once pulled apart. I was playing around with it for ages, fitting it into the dash for testing, etc and never had any issues. Just gotta make sure not to touch the LCD surface with anything hard. Don't want to scratch it! Bit of a task to put it back together, but only coz i got damn long fingers that dont like working in tight spaces limited by ribbon cable lengths.

    Raw LCD is 170mm x 108mm x ~10mm

    Didnt measure the thickness, but it was no thicker than 10mm. All these are measured off a piece of plywood I had cut to around the size of the LCD dimensions, so might not be exact, but VERY close.
