    Lightbulb New Project Opinions wanted!

    Hi everyone! I was recommended to this forum by a friend. I am very glad to because I have found tons a great ideas, and information that will be usfull for my new project starting very soon.

    The victim is a 2000 Olds Intrigue GX. It has the northstar motor and plenty of perks. The new leather seats come in on Tuesday and I am haveing the headrests on them custom embrorderd with the Olds insgnia and the words "Custom Edition" I am really looking foward to this!
    Also, 10% tint will be going in next week as well.

    But, before I install the leather seats, I would like to mount the computer system that will go under the passenger seat.

    You can see where the CD/Tape/radio is now....that will come out and I will be putting a 7.25 LCD touch screen in there.
    Also, I want to put another screen on the cealing for the kids in the back and their movies. This will probably be a 10" that I think I already have my hands on. I have a GPS antenae and software that will be used in the system. It is also full voice controllable. Otherwise, DVD and mp3 is basically all it will need to do. I have also had a suggestion to put a USB pen drive somwhere for easy Mp3 uploads.

    Here are some pics of the car I took today...give me some ideas and suggestions please.

    All sounds good.
    Sounds like you have already put some thought into the project, although this post most have been better posted in general hardware.

    Good luck with the build and install, there are days when we all need it

    Well considering you're doing what about 90% of us are doing, I think you'll find we are all in favor with your idea.

    That would have been me. What I mean't was, it would have been better posted in here originally.

    And any general questions that followed, trying to keep screen questions to the LCD/TFT forum, and Power questions to the Power supplies forum.

    Sorry if it sounded like you should move it, or copy it in.

    Update: Mobo/CPU/Power Supply

    So far, my choice of mobo/cpu combo is this here are some good pics of it
    the poswer supply for it looks sweet. Power Supply This sweet baby mounts onto the motherboard to save space and eliminate a lot of wiring.

    with the help of my friend (a mastermind a this stuff) I do belive we will start assembleing the carputer soon. We are still desiding on the mount location and design. the spot under the ac controls is ideal for the DVD/cd drive. It is 4" tall, 7" wide, and 8" deep. Thats a lot of room for just one dive. I am thinking of wiring in a USB port in there..not real sure though.

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
