    Wow, nice job on the wiring, tape>loom>tape, that's even better than the factory does it!

    I'm really looking forward to seeing the PC in there. Your doing it the right way though, plan and prep first, makes a huge difference in the end product!

    Hope all is well

    Thanks Joe. No one wants this installation finished more than me. After all, I stand to benefit most from it. I am sooooo ready for this semester to END already. Hopefully it won't be that much longer.

    Great work!! The case design is impressive.
    How do you control the temperature control knob via Fusion Brian?
    The only solution I can come up is use a servo to physically turn the knob, which results a very bulky solution.

    I need a recommendation. In order to fit the vanputer in the intended space, I've got to relocate the HVAC. The original plan was to have the vanputer do HVAC through Fusion Brain, but I've given up on that for now. It's too complicated for an initial install.



    This image shows the layout of my dash. The vanputer is going where the HVAC and OEM stereo went. Relocation options for the HVAC control panel include below the vanputer and the overhead console right above the rearview mirror (see image below).



    Right below the vanputer only requires some modification of the right mounting bracket, where as relocating it to the overhead console would require extending the vacuum lines.
