  • 1999 GS300 Worklog

    Well another year another project. I lost my second turbo SC300 to an idiot driver. Earlier in the year I picked up a GS300. I salvaged most of the parts from my old carPC so im trying to reuse whatever I can.

    Parts:

    Averatec Netbook
    BU303 GPS
    M2ATX Power Supply *** For startup and shutdown control, not power ***
    Lilliput 7 inch touch screen
    mini usb keyboard

    For the carPC I got an Averatec laptop super cheap with a broken screen. I started work on the bezel today and hopefully I can have it done by weeks end.

    Here are a few shots of the car: shots of the bezel in a little while. waiting for the stuff to dry!

    please excuse the front end of the car I'm still finishing up and yes the CF hood will be completely black. I bought the car that way.

    My rabbit helping with cleaning... He's riding in style now =P

    Ok I finally got everything going today. I did a quick test fit of everything and so far so good. Still a few minor things to do to get everything cleaned up.

    - Tucked the laptop away
    - Installed all the power/ground lines
    - Test fit the bezel
    - Tested the GPS
    - Tested touch screen

    I'm waiting on the USB to OBD-II cable to arrive as well as the bluetooth dongle.

    The bezel still needs some work which I am about to go do right now.
