  • carputer in 97 eclipse/custom turbo.

    well i started colecting parts for my carputer and my touch screen came in today. i pluged it in and nothing..... so to work of some frustration i will post a worklog of my crappy work so far.


    socket 370 mb
    1 gig celeron cpu
    80 gig desktop hard drive
    dvd/cdrw tray load
    usb card
    bluetooth usb
    earthmate gps
    and running mobil impact

    the fiberglass box is for one 12, two amps, and the carputer. i need to do a little more work on the box but it takes the place of the usless back seat in my car. here are some pics.

          i made more progress. i switched computers cause my 370 board took a dump. I went with the epia sp 13000, 512 ram, and m1 atx ps. here are some almost finished pics. i have not decided how i m going to do the rest of the consol.

            you should really work on the sanding skills before throwing paint on that stuff. im sure if you took more time it could look 1000 times better

                    thanks. it is still far to cold here. after i thaw out i am going to sand with some fine grit and paint.

                        very nice improvement on that radio surround. Why did you go with fiberglass for that box? wouldn't it be better (sturdy and flatter surface) to fabricated that out of wood and maybe wrap it in vinyl over foam? I guess i'm just having issues with that box/rack set up.

                        keep up the good work though, fun car too!

                          i dont like it anymore either. i might do the wood thing later but i works for now. i did it cause i never made anything that big out of fiberglass before.

                          here is the consol almost done
