    BLK02si... awesome job.

    Do you have any experience with Euro double-din? I have a 2006 VW passat and would love to get one of these for it. My understanding is that the depth and width measurements for Euro double din openings differ slightly from US double-dins. Let me know your thoughts on that..

    Thanks!
    Nola

    I would measure your OEM radio. Forward me the dimensions and I can bend you up a chassis that is an OEM clone out of .063" aluminum.


    On a softer side of things I am running the digital_FX skin on roadrunner now. Im also trying to get flash running on my embedded OS. The Digital FX skin has some nice flash gauges I want to see in action. Copied 4 new albums to my media drive. So the PC is still up and operational, Only downtime its seen have been for upgrades. Its also about 10 degrees here and snowy and the PC has been booting perfect. The xenarc takes a minute to warm up to full color and brightness this cold but its runs great after its warm. Amps are working fine in the cold, want to add some tweeters to the system.

    Ill also note that the mustang is running amazing. She got 5 new quarts of GTX and a new high flow K&N air filter last night. I change the oil every 2k with 5w-30, but I DRIVE the car so I breakdown oil faster. The engine has so much torque when sucking down 10degree air.

    Oh yeah I installed my HID lighting system on the headlights also. Been busy with other automotive related hardware too

    Not quite sure I understand your question. I didn't move any controls. The interface is a touchscreen, thats how you input commands. My setup has no hard buttons, only a rotary volume knob.

    I got ya now, you meant the buttons for the LCD screen. They are hidden because I never use them, I have it set the way I like and it auto turns on when it gets juice. The square hardwood dowel sections work well. I used them because I didnt want to ground out the LCD board. It came ungrounded in a plastic case and I don't like ground feedback in my display. The hardwood sections are screwed to the aluminum from both ends with some small 1" long screws. Then the PCB boards are screwed to the top of the dowel with 3/8" screws. Its been this way for about a year now with no problems what-so-ever. Good luck on your build! It s an awesome feeling when you get it done and working.

    Great installation! Well thought out and fantastically executed. I am a big fan the OEM look and the fact that when it comes time to say goodbye to the 'Stang the original HU will bolt straight back in is icing on the cake. Have you made any progress on adding FM?

    Just a little mini update - You may have seen on the news that were are in a deep freeze here in MI! Im talking like -10 degrees, schools were shut down today because of the cold. Just wanted to let ya know that the SanDisk is still booting perfect! System boots in about 20 seconds even in negative ten degree temps. Last year when I was running the OS on a normal harddrive I would see a increase in boot time in temps this cold. Not no more though

    Let me start by saying that your post has been my inspiration to build an in-dash carpc and I can only hope mine comes out half as good as yours did. I have years of experience building computers, but when it comes to car electronics I have none. I have spent countless hours just reading and researching this forum (especially your posts) and I finally think I am ready to embark on this adventure. I figure at the very least I can at least build the In-dash pc and could have a professional install it.

    From what I have read I can basically buy everything I need to complete this project except the custom made aluminum case that is going house my indash pc based off of your specifications.

    My question is how much do you charge for a custom made a in-dash chassis (frame) to match the specs of my motherboard for a double din slot in my 2003 Ford Explorer. I have bought the metra trim kit for my truck and it basically looks exactly like the one you purchased for your mustang. I am hoping a 7 inch lilliput (after I remove it from its casing) will fit right into the bezel, so I don't have to do any bondo modifications. I would appreciate any feedback regarding ordering a case like the one you made to match my motherboard and any other measurements or specifications you would need to produce it.
