  • Vdub 1999 Passat 1,8L Sedan - Carputer

    I did it, i finally did it!
    My first fabrication is finally done. Been working on this for about 4 months. I have a full time job, so i have only worked on the project by night and weekends. Probably around 100-150 hours is put down...or more?

    Put on body filler 5 min, wait 1 hour, sand, redo, redo, redo....... It take a while, trust me(Wiring, painting, glue, resin to dry). But enough about the boring stuff, here are the results:

    My car


    Version 1:


    Version 2:


    Charging (Usually use a inverter, but battery was completely flat)


    Laptop


    SPECS:
    Old Acer TM laptop 1ghz, 30 Gig hd, 128 mb ram
    7" touchscreen
    Haicom gps
    300w inverter
    Sony HU with aux input.
    (Usb wireless soon)

    Running Roadrunner and Mapmonkey, ofcourse

    Next step:
    Bluetooth phonecontrol
    Hiding and/or mounting laptop and inverter.

          You don't have to carry that around with you, do you?

            Hehe no. I normally use the inverter when i drive, to charge the battery on the laptop. But on this image i charged it from the house
