    Edit by Admin: Follow the format, read the sticky.

    Hi all there !
    I've been working 8 months @ this project, all this because I'm the first in Belgium to build this carputer.

    I would be much interested to have you people opinions on my work, I allready have an article on VIA Technologies but I'm always looking for new ideas or comments

    Feel free to visit my site or send me an e-mail !

    Congrats on the first. nice work bench. You should try to get a DC-DC ATX PSU and dump the inverter, AC PSU, and ground loop iso. You'll end up with A LOT smaller setup than what you already have. Try to locate a VGA monitor instead of using composit in monitor. The quality is way better than composit. cut off the second IDE header and keep the shortest cable you need.

      I like the industrial metal case you used for your computer. Where'd you pick that up at?

        Thanks for the advice, for the moment I'll stick to my DC-AC converter simply because it's functioning and because I have 300W available. More then 150W doesn't exists in DC-DC converters or is very expensive. Don't you thing a VGA is a little bit too big?

        Gutter :
        I bought the "blackbox" from a local electronic store. According to them, it comes from Velleman.

          I like the dubness, but the site doesnt work at 800x600, the navigation and bits of the site get cut off.

              Nice setup! I just finnished acquiring parts for my 2002 GTI 1.8t and will be installing them very soon! Congrats!

              Edit: Can you take more pics of the trunk area where you intalled the case? It looks as if you removed the panneling on the side of the car and installed it there..is that correct?

                  The page just needs flash and javascript...I don't know why it doesn't work with your internet explorer or netscape. Maybe you should consider upgrading to IE6.0
                  Let me know what error you have and I'll help you out.
