  • MP3Carisma boot install

    I've finally decided to start on my boot install, after being fed up with the computer/amps rolling around the boot!

    Here's some pics of it so far

    After sizing up the initial cut


    As I'm cutting it (to prove I'm actually doing it )


    First test fitment into the boot...pretty good if I do say so myself!


    And from the side



    Am just about to make the top for it, will post again soon with some more pics!

    looking forward to the progress!
    Glad you managed to cut that piece of board alright with just a jigsaw and a ladder! I'd have clamped it down, and wore safety goggles - but I suppose wearing specs is ok.

      I'm a daredevil, me

      What's the best thing to do with an old Tiny PC?


      Gut it and use it's insides for your carputer

      Now to figure out how to mount both inside the car

        Easy, it just fits! (Thanks, Mitsubishi and Tiny!)



        With a bit of room to spare, too


        And of course, the drive bays have to come out, nobody likes horrible bits of metal in the way!

              Bad light has stopped play

              However, the case is gutted, and the motherboard, hdd and aqua blue neon are installed Batteries in camera just died after this shot so can't show it in the dark with the neon on


              The Epia board looks absolutely tiny in there...! But i'm keeping my upgrade options open should I decide I want to put a mATX motherboard in there

                      why is it upside down?

                        Yeah, I'm hopefully going to get more in the case. The reason I chose this case (apart from the fact it had been sitting in my loft for 6 months) is that it can take a mATX motherboard, should I decide I need more power than the Epia can provide.

                        It's "upside down" so that all the connectors are facing the front of the car, while still being able to see/get to the inside (i'm putting a window in the MDF, of course)

                        Hopefully I can get some more done to it tonight, it sucks being stuck at work all day when there is a carputer waiting to be built!

                            My god my god, I feel your pain. You almost want to make yourself puke in the bathroom at work loud enough so your co-workers can hear just to get off early.

                              Lots of excitement today!

                              Firstly, when I got back from work, I bid on and subsequently won these for the car They're a set of 16" wheels complete with 205/45/R16 Continental tyres, official Mitsubishi too, off of the newer shape Carisma.



                              I also made awesome progress with the boot install

                              It is now basically done, in my haste to get it all working, I forgot to take some more pics, and I had no help tonight, so no-one else to take pics for me

                              This is one of the original test fits, after cutting out the hole for the window, and placing the 5.6" composite LCD in there too, which will probably sit there and look pretty displaying visualisations!


                              Here is the amp, i've decided to throw it in the spare wheel well now, to give me some more room in the back Also to keep the wires from getting snagged on things in the boot!

                              (And as you can see, the new wheels are a lot nicer than the old ones!)
