  • My new carputer setup - 95% done! (pics inside)

    I'm finally almost done! Ive been holding off showing pictures because I want it to be complete but I am almost there! I want to give a thanks to Rich (SrCsTc) for supplying me with the most amazing bezel I have ever seen. His craftsmanship is amazing and his help with the project was great! I would also like to thank 3onDubs for helping me with a lot of the technical stuff. Also a shoutout to mp3car.com for their help. No on with the pictures!
    Please excuse the dirtyness of the car....i just finished working on it and need to clean it up!







    This is the power button for the laptop.

    I need a better way to keep the laptop in the back.....any suggestions?
    The project was very difficult but fun to do but tedious....i integrated the sound through the stock HK amp until i have more money to update the sound system. I used the SVEN4 to do this...the rest of my system consists of the "Super Touch Screen" from ebay....Rich's Bezel....a vaio laptop.....small usb keyboard....usb radio reciever....garmin 18 usb gps system....4 port usb hub....lots of usb extension wires....iBus for steering wheel controls (amazing)
    and much more....the whole install took days to do but I also worked in it in pieces....I am also going to be adding a DVD drive in the glove box...just need extension wires...if you have any questions just ask!

      It looks very nice. Could you give us the hardware and software details. I'm especially interested in the mini keyboard and iBus steering wheel controls.

      I'm just starting on putting a car pc in my Aztek.

        You haven't mentioned the BMW that you have

        From the pics, it looks like the LCD is not running at its native resolution

            Which model is it?

            The install looks good, but like he said, the picture looks rough.

                Looks nice. For some other ideas on how to mount the laptop in the trunk, check out my install log/pics.

                  I'd say it's a 2003 330Ci (coupe)?

                    Thanks for all of the compliments!!
                    The car is a 2001 Dinan 325Ci
                    The screen is crystal clear, i just think the camera took weird.....
                    All of the wires run through the armrest and under the carpet...i had to cut some of the foam out to make it flush....then into the trunk under the back seat.
                    It works great! Thanks for all of your help!

                          Are talking about the SP-719 as depicted here?:

                          http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEBI%3AIT&rd=1

                          Any trouble with the position of the cable or were you able to reposition to fit?

                          I also have a E46 with HK and that bezel.

                              Yup thats it.....no problems fiting it to the bezel...just time and patients....eveyrthing has to be taken apart very carefully.
