Hi all East Mids here.....but i was in southport not long ago....
Been on the boards about a month and just found this thread so ill say hello...........heh up skraggy!!
Hows the screen?
HARdWARE P3 800mhz, 256 mb ram, 20gb HD, micro 815 msi mobo, irman, inverter, unknow screen (MISSING PIECE)
SOFTWARE: BOOTIT BG, win98 lite, slackware + dash pc, winxp
Im currently putting all the bits in a redundant pc case for configuring and installing and imaging!!! Imaging is the best thing in the world.......
Im also carving up a steel case for the puter to live in....using a nibbler!!
Once that is done its just the screen and then im done, but the screen is a mess i just cant find anything.....plus the whole thing has cost me maybe 100 pounds i resent spending 250 pounds on a screen alone!!!
Oh i need to buy a small atx power supply the ones in our RM Pc's are tiny made by lite on need to find a supplier or make one disappear from the office!
Is the Golf Ryder the Offroader lookalike 4x4 Golf?
Complete with the spare wheel on the boot hatch?
Location: Chorley, Lancashire
Vehicle: Toyota MR2 Mk2 NA
System: EPIA-M1000, TM-701L In-Dash 7" TouchScreen, 40Gb 2.5" HD, 512Mb RAM, Sony HeadUnit with XA-300 input adapter to allow CD Changer input to operate as 2 AUX-IN's.
Software : Windows XP, Developing custom App in Delphi using DirectShow, should handle Audio, Video initially, hopefully going to expand it to do Navigation and operate as a Bluetooth Carkit when I get the money for the hardware
Status: Still on the workbench at the moment while I build a custom case for it. Also struggling with power options, as I really can't afford an Opus.
Hopefully going to get it in the car in about a month, assuming I get up of my arse and finish the software.
Squirelly, have a look in the PSU forum about the DC2DC strore. Couple of interesting ideas in there, including the DC2DC PSU boards, and the ACE 810V which may have the rudiments of a Shutdown controller (in the form of a backup power feed in, and a pulse signal from the output side of the PSU).
No the ryder is a GTI look a like excluding the big bumper kit.....
AH, OK. Which one was the 4x4 with the softroader look then?
mmmmm i have no idea...are these like ultra rare?
Well the Synchro models are rare enough (4x4), but thge off road one actually looked beefier than some Discos, and Freelanders.
Freelanders are sooo ****e...i wouldnt have one of those if i wanted to do some off roading....or a Jeep there just as false......
If you want off roading then its got to be a defender class with a snorkel or a challenger.....proper rivoted body panels lovely....
It just makes me laugh all these SUV type 'off road' cars if you put them on that Land rover test centre i bet they all get stuck.....too long wheel bases.
