    din unit epia

    I think i recall reading about someone fitting their carputer into a single din unit. anyway i'm getting my epia m9000 for xmas. and was looking at putting the epia mobo, in the din, a hard drive (3.5") and then pushbuttons and a text lcd in the front. i have a honking huge keypower powersupply which will be mounted somewhere else in the dash (got enough room and cables are proabably about 2 feet long). any one have links to that.

    i've also been looking for the pictures of the double din unit that ShinkunoNamida was working on. but all the links to them didnt seem to work. thanks

    try www.maximaofdoom.com/aod/mod/photos/gallery.php the thumnail portion of the script doesn't work properly, but I haven't had time to work on anything in a couple months.

    You are going to have a really hard time (if not impossible) trying to get a regular 3.5" drive in with the epia.. each needs about 1" minimum clearance and a din is 2"

    Damn you people and your spacious dashboards... I'm stuck here with my mini-console in my Jetta.

    I'll be lucky if I can shoehorn in a noritake 4x20 where the ashtray is...

    Oh, come on, i only have 3 dins with a half inch between the top two and the bottom one. If I take the cover off the center console I only have a 9.26x9 inch area to work with.

    Hi,

    Go to a yunkyard and look for some old vw-golf II, there are several types which have this ŽextraŽ -piece of console you mount under original console. It has one extra din- opening, some storage space for tapes, en under there a huge storage space which is from the gear shifter to almost the fire-wall
    Since the Jetta has exactly the same dash as a Golf II you could use one off these.

    Good luck !
