  • Car Computer in Fox Body Mustang

    I've got myself a 1992 Mustang GT and its a beast - well...when it runs haha

    I've always wanted to fit a custom car pc in a car and this is the perfect car to do it.

    My goals are:

    1. Music Player incl. XM
    2. GPS
    3. Backup Camera
    4. Slot Loading DVD
    5. Whatever else springs to mind when I'm putting it together

    The screen will be held in place with a double DIN adapter like this:


    Screen will be a lilliput 7" touch screen in a double DIN enclosure

    XM is through a XM-PCR 1000:


    Backup camera I've had in my possession for about five years and should plug straight into the lilliput - need some details on that though

    Slot loading DVD will be in a custom fabbed enclosure and I'm not sure yet where it's going or if I really need it seeing as everything can be played off USB these days.

    I'm planning on mounting the motherboard in the trunk area and running cables up front.


    Any thoughts on this?


    Thanks all

    I am considering a similar setup in my 92 GT, did you move you A/C controls down to where the radio goes? Where did you get that bezel? Thats works alot better than using the stock radio location.

      you will either need to get a lilliput that has the auto-switch wire, or locate the thread on how to do it, and perform the mod yourself.

      the auto-switch feature is a wire that will switch the screen to the composite input when there is +12volts on it-- so if you hook it up to your reverse lights, the reverse camera will only display when those lights are on..

                Its from a company that can make custom bezels. They are cutting a slot under the double DIN for me to put the slimline optical drive. Thats should be wedged pretty securely between the controls and the screen haha - theres not much room to play about in there.

                Heres a link for the bezel: Its near the bottom

                  The issue is that we have people not seeing their thread come up immediately and end up trying to make half a dozen threads. If your thread doesn't appear straight away, don't be concerned, it may just be in the moderation queue. We use this to reduce the amount of spam that the forum users see.

                  There was two threads, but not to worry, maybe you hit the post button twice by accident. Not a great problem.

                    Yeah I seem to remember vBulletin freezing up on me after the post - when that normally happens I check to see if it's posted first then if it didn't repost a new one (copy and paste).
