This will be easy to impliment in the JK design, due to how the trim kit and bezel are. I can't wait to see this implimented!
That sounds good Patrick, I am working overtime on this trying to get it done for the Ohio trip, there are a couple factors I overlooked when deciding to use the pico board, such as the I/O plate. I had to make a custom USB header, and custom audio header, since all I/O is done via headers. Not really a big deal to make them, just time consuming. I ended up going with gold plated RCA jacks for your audio connections :)
Here's what she's looking like as of this morning:
That is sexy... You do great work Joe!
that looks out-freaking-standing! I see there are two sets of RCA jacks. Does that mean I have fade control?
Great Work Joe, nice and clean. I love the RCA connectors. LOL
I would think it's Line In & Line Out :lol:

This could in turn lock the cover down which would protect the screen. From there I could have it hold the PC chassis with a solid item in the car. Once a thief realizes its not coming out, he might start hacking away at the interior of the car, but at least the PC will be safe :lol:

Been following your builds and am floored!
I have an 07 prius and am looking to replace the stock head unit. it measures 7" x 4" and is 6" deep. there is a little room behind it for cables and such.
Is there a 7" screen that will fit in that space? I expect I will need a custom bezel since there is no dash kit for it.
Also, I am planning to mount the PC elsewhere, so my main concern is the screen.
I am going to try and make a drawing in solidworks or something to mock up the dash.
Thanks for the assist guys!
First off I must say I'me very impressed with your handywork. I've delayed my pc install for more than 2 years and I'm finally going to get off the pot and get this thing on the road. I was hoping I could do that by soliciting your skills at making me a box to mount my pc goodies in. They're already installed in a Travla C138 ITX Case but I would like to see if you could mount my pc components into one of your custom cases along with my Transflective display. I can send you the specifics about what I had in mind so as not to clutter your thread. It took me more than 3.5 hours to quickly go through each page tonight.
Would you be willing to take on a unique project?
You asked at just the right time :)
I am putting the finishing touches on the JK build and once that is complete I will have the space and time to work on another bolt-in carPC project. If you could email me the specific hardware and requests and i'll see if I can help you out. You can mail me at joe at shocknet dot us.
