New audio system

Ok, so I want to integrate my CB into my audio setup and started thinking about how to do it. I came to the conclusion that I have to replace the entire head unit and everything associated with it, up to the wires going to the amp. I'm being sarcastic about having to, but it's an idea for a project. Here's what I want to put in to replace the head unit:
A Voom-PC from
A pico-LCD display for showing me the audio that's going
A USB GPS receiver
A Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro
A Rockford Fosgate 3SIXTY.3
A Lenovo 13.3" touchscreen USB Mobile Monitor

I figure on mounting the PC in the glovebox. The screen will mount in place of the installed head unit with the surround controller and pico-LCD below it all in a custom mod for the dash surround.the 3SIXTY.3 will go under the center console and connect to the surround controller with an optical audio cable. I can control the 3SIXTY.3 with the PC and a bluetooth dongle too. I'm wondering if I'd have to move the HVAC controls or not. Anyone done an install like this? Anyone have ideas or tips? Oh, and the CB can plug into the surround controller. With the right navigation software, this could be better than my Garmin, or at least less expensive to update. Plus, with the computer, I can attach an external HDD and have whatever music I want. I still need to figure out the radio part though... Any ideas?
