    Well I got to work this morning and almost shat myself. I knew things were looking good but this blew my mind. AWESOME WORK DOUG! The final product is a black texture paint. It came out even better than I had hoped. So here is where we stand, the IR sensor was installed inside of the vent, really cool idea, and great placement. You can only see it when you are really looking for it. I included a picture of the back where you can really see how it is installed. The last picture is the screen with power in its new home. We played with the monitor today and this thing is great. PIP and split screen dual input modes, rather amazing! Well here are the pics of the dash as it stands now.







    So now its just the PC fab left, thats tonights project!!

    Yes I guess I should put an update up. Last night was filled with OS and front end installs... the was an "issue" with my copy of XP Pro however and I need to start over, I can't get any windows updates or validations because of it . tonight all software will be completed and ready for install tomorow, which is GREAT cause I have the day off of work, although I'll prolly be hanging out at work and working on stuff anyway. So thats where we stand on the puter

    as far as the dash... I'm hoping for install today, the works, we were originally waiting for my amp to come in to do the install cause I didn't want to loose music, but at this point everything is so close to coming together I think I can go a day or so without tunes, It will most likely make me kick it up a notch anyway, I am an audiophile at heart so no music makes me somthing somthing

    For the amp if my former coworker, who also happens to have the day off ever rolls out of bed and calls me hopefully I'll have the amp today... if not I'm just bying a RF 4 channel amp before the end of the day!

    Hoefully by tomorow night there will be pictures of the final install!

    Ahh, I have found it before, usually double to cost of other paints, but its really looking as though it will be money well spent when I do my next one in a month or two.
