    Glad to see the build is coming along.

    In regards to your monitor setup/plan: Have you heard of a company named SimPit? (In my first post link the guy over on ISRTV is using these) Looks pricing is up there and the name of the thread says "Budget" but may be a good idea to have a look on their site for ideas or maybe even contact them on all the 180 view angle questions.

    Man would i love to have their 270 view angle setup.

    Its nice how much angle you can push out of 3 projectors. In my case I even might try to use 2 projetors for front view and 1 for back view. This would save money on replacing right, left door mirrors and center mirror with small monitors, leaving them as they are and it would be easier to do. Also, I'll try to project track surface from the bottom aiming for "height" feeling of the car in which hood will cover good amount of screen and will make its own blind zones. Mercedes has a superior one punch simulator with 8 projectors (hm, not sure) displaying 360 view. Also I'm looking for cheaper 1080p projectors. That black diamond paint screen is expensive one, in this case I 'll cover projector frame (cast shadow) and paint screen with cheaper paint. I know its much quicker to buy whole all-in-one packet, but spending time by your own and finding ways pays of much better

    More functionality on dashboard. Still figuring out hot turn signal/full beam unit works.
    While doing wiring saw similar colors unintended coincidence which could turn out into some nice art work in engine section

    Finishing up wiring for now.
    Engine start button (no space for real key mechanism for now, might look in future while changing steering wheel), handbrake button, hazard lights button, traction control button, turn signal unit with both left/right signal, long lights, light block wiring for turning up lights and controlling light intensity in car, 5 unmapped buttons for some functions like change view, reset

    Some work on putting in components. For now as not moving car its easiest and least time requiring way. Two of speakers will serve as center/sub speakers in 5.1 while indoor car speakers will be front/back output
