    OK - back from vacation.
    Last night the screen got fixed! The VGA/RCA/Power wires are now rerouted to go stright out the back of the LCD display.

    More progress:
    Last night I refitted the mounting bracket to the PC sits almost on top of the A/C controls and connected all the sound wires as directed in StangNet. It sounds GREAT!

    More progress last night!
    I was able to mount the front-side USB, switches (Power & Reset) and 3 LEDs (PW/SLP/HD). I also re-soldered the VGA connectors inside the display... they were still loose - that better fix the problem!

    Looking good. Now if some one asks how I did my mustang I can direct them to this thread, since our setup is almost the same and you have better install pictures.
    PROGRESS [==========-] 99.9% <- Are we ever really actually done with our carPCs?

    Backlight Burned out.. :-(

    I was driving down the road with everything working and the screen just went black! Right away I was thinking the back light went out because the screen's power light was on and the music was still playing. I took the screen apart again and there it was...

    I did some searching on this site and found I am not alone!!
    Blown CCFL Inverter

    Lesson Learned:
    ALWAYS keep a handful of Internet sites in your back pocket!

    OK... while I await parts for the display, I'll be working on the upper bezel. I was glad to have a chance to use it (if only for a day) to find out that glare is a very real problem... especially in a convertible! So I want to angle the screen to reflect the seat back rather then the back window (or sky). I am also thinking about some kind of small visor over the screen (molded into the bezel).

    I may also put a heat sink & fan on the stinking inverter transformer after its working again.

    At the risk of sounding like a dick, how do you now feel about this statement?
