Not as slick as it could be, but fot a first hack it's still ok. Really impressive is the 'wood' iPod, not my cup of tea, but shows considerable skill with a Dremel. Check it out. :cool:

I woulda incorporated the use of an FM modulator over the iTrip. It's what I have in my Jeep and it's definitely an improvement. No more channel-fighting.

Even more impressive is his scratch-built wooden PC system (http://www.flickr.com/photos/zapwizard/sets/625883/).

IMO, if you're going to go through the effort of soldering to the computer's motherboard and building custom DVI-VGA adapters, then you might as well attach the Mac to the stereo's line-in jack. (Or replace the radio or solder on a jack if there isn't one available.)

FM transmitters only make sense if you don't want to do any work, which is clearly not the case this time around.
