        Post a pic of your car! Maybe you could also resize the pics to maybe 800x600 as they are rather big...

            The ac controls move under the cd holder on actory nav models so that will be easy ang guess what I found out as well you see the cd holders well they happen to be the exact size of a laptop cd drive so I ordered a slot load for it I am stoker about this project the only thing I need to decide is on what pc to get honestly I would have no problem buying the best so any recommendations would be awesome I have looked at the other threads but all I want is an awesome pc that can handle the job I want it to boot really fast as well

              Sumicom SP625 with a Pentium M processor, if you can wait till September then get the Mini AOpen.

              Once I am done with my carputer i'll start working on one for my dad. Will probably use the Mini AOpen.

                  I think the most reliable board and most common among minitx is the VIA Epia, but for reall performance you should get a mini itx based on a Pentium M CPU. Mind you, be carefull what exactly you choose, as some mobos don't realy work with the opus 150W (best DC-DC PSU on the market; it also can manage a Pentium mini itx based system, if there are no arguments between the two).
                  If don't plan a mini-tx system, but want a powerfull P4 system, that could only run through an inverter, but there are a couple of issues here also, mainly heat. Powerfull desktop sysmte generate A LOT of heat, and in the car, that heat tops with the heat from outside and all. So, in MY opinion, if you want a powerfull system, that would still look proffesional and act proffesional, go for a mini itx mobo and a DC-DC PSU. Check out i-base, they have a few boards that support Pentium CPU's.
                  Epia's are great, but when it comes to graphics they're really, really bad. They do a splendid job as a car pc, but the downside (although I don't see it like one...) is that you coudn't play the latest games on it, with the onboard graphics, but then again you could always get a PCI graphics card. Mini itx systems are less challanging,as you'll never have to worry abbout heat generation, or power draw.
                  You can see there are a lot of options out there, so making a decision is pretty hard...


                  The dash looks like it will be an awesome piece. Good job so far!

                    I run a fairly powerful system in my car. AMD Sempron 2600+, EPoX micro-ATX board, 512MB RAM, 160GB SATA HDD, Creative Sound Blaster Live! USB, Linksys Wireless-G PCI Card, 5-80mm fans, CyberPower 4-port USB hub, USB keyboard, Holux GPS antenna, Rechargeable Wireless Trackball mouse, and Lilliput 7" screen. It is all running off my Keypower 250W DC-DC Power Supply with the micro Shutdown Controller . I couldn't be happier with the setup. I built a custom box for the whole thing in my trunk, it takes a bit of space but it's a mustang, there is only so much I could put in that trunk anyway , honestly I don't miss the space.

                    As Cris said, there are a lot of options, a lot of them very good, as for the best I would say that depends on your setup, what you want to do with it, how much space you have, etc. Good luck!!

                    It looks great so far....and *****in' car!!!!!

                    CHEERS!!!!

                      what he said

                      And JDTuner? Japanese Domestic Tuner?

                      Hmm, might have change that nickname.

                      Good choice on cars, good luck with the fab job.

                        DROOOOOOOL you git!

                        Beautiful car and to be honest you look like you have the money to build a seriously nice system. I would definitely go with a tiny pentium Mobile system. I would suggest athlon mobile using nForce 2 so you can get custom resolutions but as you are using a 4:3 screen you can run standard resolutions so a pentium M board with intel extreme 2 graphics will be fine.

                        If you have the money go for a single board computer style PC - they are quick and very efficient and small. Otherwise look for a miniITX P4 or pentium-M board (i can usggest a few to you for around 180-250). Don't go for too high spec on the CPU, you don't need it.

                        My one concern is that screen. How does it connect to a PC? do you have a VGA controller or is it LVDS or a pure TFT (laptop style etc etc)?

                          Yes I have an lcd controller its all touchscreen as well its actually very expensive to go the route I went with the tft screen however it looks so good so it was worth it will post some more pics as I am going to do some work on it today
