    Sorry, tried to edit the title to include the car name 2003 Mustang GT

    I've been lurking here for some time but here is the start of my project

    End specs will be:

    1.2ghz AMD cpu
    512mb pc2100 DDR
    Asus A7V mobo
    Asus GF4 Ti4200
    SB Live Plat.
    80gb HD
    6xDVD
    Enlight 250w PSU
    400/800 Inverter
    Lilliput 7" TS LCD
    Pionner 7400mp H/U
    Clarion EQ w/Aux Input
    Punch 360 (3 x punch 60's - 6 channel amp)

    8" Kicker Solobaric L7 Sub - Ported Enclosure (hit 140.6db in other car)

    I installed the LCD yesterday and did some testing, everything looks great so far! Sound is great, I can start the car with the pc on, and everything seems to be very promising.

    Not bad, I'm trying to install a 10.4" display in my mustang of the same body style. Haven't quite gotten around to actually doing anything yet though, lol.

          The viewing angle is great, looks perfect.

          I will be getting a very small wireless keyboard with a track ball built in soon. This weekend the pc will be placed where the spare tire is. Will probably build it in with vinyl panels and use a plexi-glass lid. More pictures to come!

          For all intensive purposes the wiring is complete and it sounds badass!

                  Gnat,

                  what is the box made of that you have the motherboard sitting in? Is that metal or plexiglass (im talking about the 2 walls that have round swirls on them) and do you have ventilation in there?


                  Great setup!!!

                      All the walls of the box are made with 1/2 inch MDF (wood). Black vinyl on the bottom piece and 1/8 inch alluminum on the walls. Brushed marks were made with an air cutter/sander (ziz wheel). The top of the box is lexan - plexi.

                      I have two Stinger SF3n 12 volt fans. One intake and one exhaust.

                      They push/pull 54 cfm each which is a nice breeze through the box.

                      Thanks for all the compliments guys, let me know if you have any questions. I will be installing my DVD drive in the glove box this weekend hopefully. Using an external USB cdrom drive as an IDE conversion Can't wait!

                            Many many congratulations man, that must be one of the nicest trunk installs I've ever seen! You are worthie of all the compliments you receive! I'm still confused about the heat factor? Where are those fans installed in your car; doesn't the plexy get hot? what temperature is in there?

                              I'm using some audio equipment fans pictured in my post above.

                              Here is where the fans are - Red rectangles - and the airflow.

                              There is also a vent behind the power supply's fan.



                              I have had One problem - One day. It was 90+f outside and the pc did fine for a few hours while out and about in the car. The air was on, and one of the rear seats was folded down so cool air could get in the trunk easier. I stopped the car and took a ride in someone elses car. When I came back my brother had my car running, both doors open and trunk open showing it off. In this case the computer reset itself and when it came back up windows was giving me errors. I shut it off and waited a bit, then turned it back on and everything was fine. I would like to be able to run it all the time no matter of temperature, so I am looking into the possibility of an A/C duct reroute or another means of ventilation.
