    Where do you plan on putting the HD? I was going to stick the case in the back, along the rear panels somewhere. This idea seems cooler.

    I wil be making a mount for the HDD on the bottom of the plexi along with the second M2-ATX. My first thought was to put the PC in the rear but decided aginst that just so if I have to take it in the house for something it is a 5 min job as opposed to a 1 hour job.

    April 8th Update


    Well I decided on going with the 2 M2-atx PSUs over the opus just because thoes were my intentions from the start. If I went with the opus I would have to move everything around and then have some un needed holes in my glovebox, (you know I dont want mail falling out J/K)
    So the PSUs are ordered and hopefuly will be here mid week.
    I also got my monitor last night, I got the monitor new for $50.00, (its good when friends owe you money and dont have it to pay). I wanted to do another 7in but couldnt pass up this one, I was also thinking transreflective but I think I can wait to see if I am unsatisfied with this one. I will have the angle slightly different then my xenarc was. BTW the monitor is a t view 8" I started to cut my dash ezel up so here are a couple pics



    Here are the unmolested pieces



    I have the bezel marked out for cutting. I had to notch out the 2 circles because they are for my hazards and rear defrost.



    I got the bezel cut and fit the monitor in to see where I need to trim.

    When this is done I will be starting on the center console which I will house a DRC controler for my zapco DSP-6 (unless I get the program embedded soon I am having some difficulty with this), My cd rom will also go in there with a usb hub and the hazard and refrost controls that I need to move.

    Random update

    I ordered IG3 and a bu-353 reciever today an I am looking for a wireless antenna and keyboard still. I think that is about it though then I should be done. (for a while anyway).

    One more thing this you shouldnt ever open epoxy with an exacto blade. I was being lazy and my wife being a nurse thought it needed stiches so we go to the hospital and DR. says it should be stiched but he didnt think they would hold up because the cut goes from the upper middle side to about 1/2 way around the finger where the crease bends the finger tip. Heres a pic after we got the beeding slowed with my second towel.

    OOPS!! but now atleast you can't say I didn't put some blood sweat and tears into the project.

    What's an install without blood? If you don't bleed then you aren't working hard enough

    Cool, I like how your PCI card is held in by the slot cut into the glovebox. Do you have enough clearance for all the cables when you close the glovebox?

    Clearance is good there is wore clearance with the box closed then open, so it will be tight when opened. I'm still going to make a bracket for the wifi card because I need to trim the box to make the edges a little nicer, and to make the fit not so tight.

    Your install won't finish without blood.
