    Heavy is the real deal. He used to work in Aerospace, or as he calls it errorspace.

    IT WORKS.

    Got the OEM data to an ext display.

    Took a while, but the Frankenradio is gonna get done.

    Now just have to tweak it a bit.

    Thanks for the compliments from all.

    Here are a few screen shots of where I am today.,

    The OEM data is "perfect", back up camera works as does the computer.

    Go here:

    The finished version should look just like stock except for the addition a few switches on the front panel.

    RATS!

    Just ran into a brick wall with the Mac install.

    It fits, the CD/DVD slot lines up, but the plug ins don't have enough clearance without going through the firewall.

    The Mac is getting mounted probably behind the arm rest.

    No big deal and in fact I keep the CD changer.

    If you use the optical output, the Mac gives 5.1 when playing a movie.

    I may have to get a USB Soundblaster adapter or something like it.

    I plan on yanking the BOSE everything.
