    Regarding painting the dvd drive, the person who helped me doing the fabric glass told me that there might be a possibility that if we painted the drive it would turn out to another color or that the paint would look ugly because of its surface :/ thats why it was left with the OEM color of the drive

    Go I finally did the installation.. I forgot to take the camera with the guy that helped me installing the equipment... I will post some pics on how it looked finished tomorrow...

    Regarding of what HU i had, yes it was a Sony MP3 cd player, got it like 2 years ago... (was one of the first that supported id3 tags)

    For amps, no im not using the moonson amp, I added a Phoenix Gold 4 channel amp... I might have to consider adding some cooling.. never thought it could do some harm to it..

    For now I'll have to wait till monday when I get my new 90 watt power supply, (the one i received first here from mp3car had a faulty remote pin, so I couldnt "turn on" my amps, screen, usb hub and dvdrom, right now I have it with a switch with positive power off the battery.
