  • VW Transporter T5

    Hi guys

    First thread so go easy on me.
    I recently purchased a double din DVD player etc to fit into my VW T5, all went well accept when fully installed, the screen is barely readable due to the height of the unit in the dash and the angle at which it sits.
    Having pondered this issue for the whole of my bank holiday weekend, and reading through loads of threads on here. I am now thinking of completely forgetting the headunit and going for carpc with screen mounted in the dash.
    Having read up on modifying the dash for three days, i am now a little confused as to where the start. Basically, i completely understand the different methods of glueing/ fixing different types of plastics. May main query at the moment is how do you identify which plastic is which. I have no idea what material my T5 dash is made from nor the Lillput screen i intend purchasing.
    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Thanks s

    usually there are logos/symbols on the rear of the plastic piece that should indicate the material it uses.

        not really-- i prefer name brands like asus, gigabyte, and intel, but really don't have any specific likes/dislikes within those brands--just whatever fits the build.

          Right modding of the dash panel is well under way, decided to go down the ABS goop road, takes an age to go off so decided to post up my shopping list for my build.

          2GB DDR3 SDRAM
          M2-ATX psu
          64GB SSD+60GB external HDD(from old laptop got knocking around)
          Slimline DVD drive TBC
          VoomPC 2
          Alpine CDE-9850Ri HU
          lilliput 669gl/ Bybyte frame / second screen to come later
          Windows 7

            Alpine CDE-9850Ri HU -- why?
            If you're doing a CarPC then there's no need for this..

              was sort of thinking this would be the amp, set up in the back somewhere, so could also use it to control volume listen to radio etc whilst fishing camping whatever.
              Got me thinking now, this not good idea then??

                it is perfectly fine-- many run the carpc into the hu so that they can have radio/cd even if the carpc isn't on, or isn't working, or in your case, a simple solution for volume control+amp... it's kinda like having 2 ipods-- a little excessive, but sometimes is what you need to fit your requirements..

                  Build is coming along, components arriving, dash mod taking forever.

                  I think i got most of the wiring sorted just bit of head scratching with the Asus atom 330 at3iont and the M2-ATX. I ve plugged the 2 pin connector to the M2 J8 motherboard on/off switch, but on the MB all i can find is a system panel connector (10-1 pin F_PANEL). Do i connect to just the PWR BTN gnd and pwr? and forget the other pins.

                    Thanks S
