    This is possible to do. However, I'd take a look at the CarPC section of the Kustom PC forums, or car audio forums. If you watch on YouTube, Steve Meade has a very clean car PC install, on his forum there is a thread on that, there should be lots of pics which should make how he did it much clearer.

    Good luck :)

    dont like the look of that head unit as it has rubbish connections.

    ideally you want a screen with a better res than 480x232 and have a VGA output
