Hi dt1313, I was wondering how much the install for the motorized tv was. Your setup is sweet!
thanks

I agree with everyone else, pretty sweet setup. I have a quick question though. How often do you play the PS2 in your car? Did you buy a second PS2 just for your car? I'm really not seeing the utility in putting the system in your car, unless you are also using it as your DVD player.

Yeah, I'm thinking of putting a PS2 in my car as well.

Even though I may not use it all the time, at $299 and if you can fit in in your car, that's a damn bargain. Most car DVD players start out at $499 and most portable DVD players start out at $399. PS2 seems to be the least expensive way to go, and not to mention having the ability to play ps1 and ps2 games when you want to.

Thanks to everyone for the compliments...To answer some questions...The custom monitor setup runs about $3700...Now that may seem alot but it is the original piece with a totally custom piece fiberglassed and molded together...Also the TV is a 7" Widescreen(not a traditional screen)lastly the TV is moved by an actuator so it goes up and down pretty quickly......dr1ft3r basically if i'm traveling any distance that's beyond 1/2 hour I pop in a movie or let my passengers play a game, I didn't buy a second unit the one I have is installed with a gameport....meaning that the A/V's actually plug into my rear ashtray and he power plug is in that compartment right next to the ashtray....so i can take the PS2 in and out.......hope that helps....Dan

yo man...
That is one sick piece of work. What kind of TV is that? I'm planning on getting a TV/DVD/CD player as well w/o losing the stock 6 CD changer. Is there anyway to get it done above the ashtray? $3700 is really steep, but it's worth it in my books. I might have to forgo rims to get my piece done like that. Any suggestions on getting a TV/DVD/CD player in w/o losing the 6CD changer? Thanks.

Hey guys sorry i've been away for a while...To answer questions here goes

The install took about two weeks.....If you notice in the trunk the whole thing is wrapped in suede to match the interior

The TV is made by Sharp I believe, what I do know is that when you get to a screen of this qualtiy they're all the same.....The high quality is there just like a Santeca. Accele and the Alpine Head unit(CVA series)

Hope that helps anymore ???'s feel free

Dan
