I dismantel the eee-pc today all seem to be not so complicated for an it guy like me!

I notice the eee-pc 701 have an build-in usb webcam, I will try to re-wire it up to the back of my car, probably in my in my trunk door window

I receive one pioneer DEH-P470MP for free from one of my close friend :0)
this will drive my pc car system.

when I was browsing the web I saw a guy how upgrade his versa speaker to bose speaker from a infiniti g20 donor. I would call all the scrapyards in montreal it may be a nice upgrade for my versa!

tomorow I promise I take somes pictures of the eee-pc in parts, and from my radio installation

I have one small question, when you dismantle the center console, what happen if I unplug the airbag light ?

I just install my new radio and I take somes pictures. I remove the small compartement in the top of the central console the dismenteling of the console is really easy, but you must take care of removing the airbag light, i take a picture of the screw to remove for removing the plastic part ;) watch carefuly it's small and behind of circuit.

I had mount my new radio on the existing brackets by adding 4 metal legs ( more pitures will come with the lcd assembly) for now it seem to be a good start the radio upgrade do all the differance and I have now an auxiliary input :)
