i got an honda civic coupé from 94 and i want to install an carpc in it...
at first i thought i would install it in the trunk, but after i started planning i wonder if i could find a better place...
the reason why i don't think the trunk is a good place anyway is because of the heavy wiring required:
4m screen wire
4m usb wires (for mouse, keyboard, etc.)
4m audio cable from sound card to headunit and from headunit to amplifier = 2x 4m audio cable
and maybe more...
so i wonder if you have a good idea where i can install my carpc?
i'd say behind the dash if you can, glove box if you dont mind loosing the storage space, or under a seat if there is room.
or if there is enough room in the passenger footwell, make up a false floor to hide it under, will look normal, be safe, and easy to work on
I would get over the fact that you need heavy wiring from the trunk. I have mine in my hatchback and ran all my wires from the front to the back in less then half a day. I did this because I didn't want to put it under the seat, in the glove box, or behind the dash taking a chances of over heating. So far it's been about two years and it's running strong!
