    Well... the screen is still very nice... it's just a little (lot) dim right now. And I'm hoping I am the only one having these problems.

    The ebay vendor, I bought the screen from, is actually trying to help me out. I'm still up in the air as to weather it was a bad purchase or not.

    FINALLY got the display working again this morning.
    The upper bezel is mostly complete, so I should have some pics of the finished product soon.

    Worked on the upper bezel. Things always take longer then I plan!

    I'll then mount the carPC and LCD screen directly to the bezel, then slide the whole unit into the dash.

    Pictured here is the bezel in primer
    The plan is to cut a rectangle in the section just below the screen for the DVD, lights, buttons and ports.

    TIP: Use "Glazing and spot putty" to cover/fill small imperfections. It sands much easier then bondo and flows kind'a like primer paint in a tube. I applied it using my finger to better match the inside curves of the bezel. I liked the results so much I pulled out the lower (shift) bezel for some touchup work too.

    It's installed and operstional. I'm working on the RoadRunner installation right now. There's still several things needing to be fixed.
    1. Bezel is not fitting correct
    2. I still have a bad VGA connections causing the screen to blank out once in a while.
    3. RoadRunner uses MapPoints - I have a DeLorem GPS

    Here are some updated photos...

    The bezel - It fits but not as well as I would like it to... more modification to go. The screen placement is just right. Recessed in for just a little shade and angled slightly downward to cut down on reflections. The opening for the Drive buttons and lights needs to be flush with the screen (my bad.) It does mount in the car, i'll upload some pics of it installed after I make some more mods.

    Also is a pic of the heat sink I attached to the step-up transformer. It's sticking out the back of the LCD screen mounted in the bezel.

    Just came across your install...nice to see some more mustangs. Looking good so far. Only thing I want to mention is even angling it slightly down might not do the trick..mine actually reflects from the light on my passenger seat and is pretty much as bad as direct sunlight.

    I gave up on trying to perfectly angle the screen. Didn't work no matter what angle it was at. With the top down and the white leather interior, I just memorized the button locations. I'm waiting for those new transflective screens to come out. I guy did a demo at one of our so cal meets and they look good in direct sunlight. Just don't have the money to cough up.

    Your install is looking very good. Keep us posted.
    PROGRESS [==========-] 99.9% <- Are we ever really actually done with our carPCs?
