    Just collecting the rest of the hardware so I can finish up the bench testing. The 3G DOM (disk on module) and wireless card will be here tomorrow. Over the weekend I will load up the OS on the DOM. I have most of my stereo equipment ready to go.

    My plan is to make sure the PC is running at least 93% efficient before I install it in the car. Trying to avoid having to rip the console apart one to many times.

    It's taking a bit longer than I planned, but better to be safe than sorry.

    ************UPDATE 09-18-06***************

    I got my 3G DOM chip Friday along with mini-wireless card. So far, I have installed stripped down version of XP SP2 using nLite. Everything seems to be working fine. After the OS install I was left with ~900MB of free space on the 3G DOM chip. I have a 40G laptop drive (second HD) which I partioned for music and movies (30G). The rested the second HD I mounted as a "programs" directory for so less space would be used on the primary drive.

    I am working with RR right now. After my initial testing with all the apps I plan on installing, I MAY go back and strip more of XP to see how much I can live without.

    Oh, and I have less hair on my head than I did last week. I will continue to update everyone as I get further into the project..

    Nice work! I got a version of nlited XP that is 130mb on disk and just over 400mb installed. I love how you added the DOM chip. How does this plug in? Is it like PCI or something?

    Thanks, although I ran into a snag. I couldn't get sound to work so back to nLite I go.

    The DOM chip plugs straight into IDE 1 (40pin). The downside is that you can't run a second IDE device to that port because the chip has female plug (unless you customise a IDE cable). No matter, because there is always USB.

    U can see the chip here

    I haven't had any trouble with XP Beast either. What do you use to run your DVD's? I haven't decided on what FM module to use. Everything I've read so far tells me it hasn't been perfected. What do you have in mind for FM? I just started my install in the car last week. I've been caught up at work getting ready for peak season (holidays). The car was on the back burner for a bit.. Here a couple of pics of my install:

    Wow, you've got that stang PULLED apart! Is that side exhaust i see? I assume you have the entire interior out to run wires and such. I would like to do the rear seat delete and Im going to be replacing my seats with a set or CR1 corbeau racing seats, they are sitting in my garage right now. As far as the FM im still tossing it up but im looking for a HQCT module. If that doesnt work out ill probably do something temporary by connecting the input of the PC to the output of an mp3 player with FM support. Was it hard to remove the doors??

    Yea, I always take my cars apart when I run wires. They are never going to come out so I might as well do it the right way. I was hoping I wouldn't have to take the doors off to run the speaker wires, but the way Ford ran the OEM harness through the door I didn't have much of choice. They used a huge plug between the body and door with no room to run 12 gauge wire. So, off with the doors. It's very easy, but you will need 2 people. Just find 2 buckets that will sit just under the door and cover the buckets with towels. Have 1 person hold the door steady while you remove the bolts(alternate loosening the bolts). And make sure your windows are fully down (easier to carry the doors this way). Once you get all 6 bolts taken off, just rest the door on the buckets and disconnect the harness from the body of the car.

    The side exhaust is from Bash Performance. They are supposed to be releasing the side skirts in Dec' after the SEMA show. I have my King Cobra hood sitting in the garage. Going to get everything painted at once. I still, yet, have to find someone who would be willing to trade me their V6 rear bumper for my GT bumper.

    Post some pics of your seats when you get them in.
