    M2-ATX

    Parts Used for CarPC V2:

    i used the headrest fitting so i would have easy access to take the screen out when i needed to, so far it works great.

    For my first attempt i used an old dell i had lying around, it was slow and it was big so i tried to cut down as much of the exterior as possible

    and this is what it looks like in the boot, it took up way to much room for my liking and and combined with the sub it was just to much

    I ran this setup for a few months and it finally failed when the bios battery ran out, i couldnt be bothered trying to replace it so i decided an upgrade was in hand, i ordered all the new parts of either ebay or through the mp3car store luckily all this happened when the us dollar was so low so i snagged quite a few bargains ordering parts from the states

    here are some new pics of the second car pc

    OMFG, I love how fuking simple your screen was. You basically used a headrest version and stuck the shroud in the gap of you original bezel. Genius!!!!! I wish mine was that simple!

      I originaly wanted to have 2 metres of cables behind the screen so I could take it out and use obd for engine diagnostics whilst working on the engine, but I don't mind how it looks with the surround kinda suits the car

        It took me a few days but i got karaoke working i used UltraStar a singstar style program and i used the mics that came with my copies of guitar hero: wt and Rockband, there both logitec microphones i have them running off a powered usb hub in the back of the car,

        This is UltraStar the only down fall of this program is that it requires the keyboard to navigate the menu

                        Hey Koolmoedee,
                        Do you know if the 93' Verada Ei KR, has an OBD-II Connector or a OBD connector?

                          Man your screen looks absolutely fantastic! It's a perfect fit, looks stock and has that minimalistic appearance about it. I'm surprised at how simple it was. Then again, these older cars didn't have fancy dashboards and centre consoles. Great job mate!

                          How are you resuming from hibernation in 10 seconds? My system takes at least 20.

                            thanks for the props i'm still running the same system to date with no troubles at all
                            i have no idea what causes the fast resume but its always ready when i need it

                            i never looked much into this after i got the system in but as far as i have explored it doesn't and i've pulled the entire interior out
