    Yeah the rear deck is nice for the install, the front stock positions arent very good. Im probably going to fabricate door positions for the speakers in the front.

    A dremel tool with a cut-off wheel, or better yet, a quick-release and large plastic cut-off wheel, works as well as the "scribe and break" method. Trust me, it will make for smoother, more accurate edges, so long as you use care in how you mark and cut.
    I have too much time and too little aggravation in my life, so I built a carPC. ;)

    Ok well I got my car back the other day. However, the bastards stole my stereo and my sub (among other stuff that was in the car). So whatever you do make sure you at LEAST get an alarm.

    That sucks man.

    I have the computer in, im working on the dash right now, and first thing, even before an alarm, is a new battery... LMFAO

    I left the computer on for maybe a half hour, and it drained my 6 yr old Sears diehard silver battery dead. Charged it up again... but i NEED a new one...

    I've started designing the sound system. Here is a cadded up image of the trunk and the Fiberglass box & amp rack

    For now, i plan to use the following components:
    (They are much more inexpensive parts than originally planned because... well relaity hit... )

    (2) Cadence Audio CWM6 Component Speaker Kits
    - 6.5" Woofer and 1" Tweeter
    - 100w RMS per channel
    - External Crossover (Rather than the inline capacitor on lesser quality units)

    (3) Pyramid Audio PB449x Amplifiers
    - 125w RMS per channel
    - "500w" peak (but we know those numbers are all bull...)

    (2) 10" Sub Woofers (Model yet to be determined)
    - 100/200w RMS range

    (1) 2.0 Farad Capacitor

    ----

    As for the computer, things have been running very well. The panel i made for the radio slot (has the dvd drive a volume dial, leds, and some buttons)
    has come somewhat unattached... not sure why/how but that needs to be fixed....

    Also I need to figure out why my GPS craps out from time to time....It seems sometimes it just cannot get satelite contact.... I think there might be some sort of COM assignment conflict...

    Well thats all for now...
