  • My completed Carputer (56k warning)

    I've been done for almost a month, but forgot to post it up here. This forum is very informative.

    I've decided not to take out the screen and mold it in the dash because of the problesm I hear after everyone's screen has been taken apart, but only like 5% of the screen fails if u dont' so I decided to fiberglass around it. I think it turned out okay, but i'd love for the screen to be silver oh well.


    I saw an accord setup like this, but I'm not sure about the bottom part and there are .3" space on each side, so i decided to fab my own dash up (these pics were from another accord owner on this board hope he doesn't mind posting it up)

    Let me know what you guys think! there's this little slant on the right that i'm not too happy with but nothing i can do now!

    Frodo Says: Make your images 800x600 or less
    if you want to display them inline. A little more
    compression too if you don't mind.

                I'd DEFINITELY say the slow speed is the server... the pics are only 400K or something like that... I'd look for a different way to host them... just a thought... other than that, congrats on your install... I'm ready to get off my arse and do mine now... later!

                  sorrry about the big pics guys, i just forgot to resize them. I'll do it later today

                  to answer your questions, yes the blue interior lights are leds done by myself adn the reason for not using an aftermarket deck is, well, I like the color scheme (because I did teh blue conversion) and I can control my volume and channel directly from my steering wheel, and the stock cd changer is a 6 disk cd changer, so I think it'd actually be a downgrade to change to a aftermarket deck just to output sound.

                    oh nice but what about the stock guage lights do those turn on too? i believe they are white? or did u just disconnect em? and for ur headunit are u going to cover up the sides i think i can c a bit of the shell. also do u got a link to where u got ur leds or a store name the onlyk ones ive found r the bare leds or the ones for ur license plate bolts is that what u got?

                      So much blooooooo...
                      what does that do for your night vision (or is it red and blue that can be used safely without messing [your] nightvision up?)

                      Anyways, a very nice setup, nice screen mount

                              what a difference in connection speed that! I am on the KPN network in the Netherlands and the pictures load in less than 2 seconds in my case. Strange
