    Ca ne me dérange pas trop que ça soit pas à mtl même mais si je peux trouver seulement des sites web canadien pour commender mes choses, j'aimerais mieux ça parce qu'ailleurs il faut que ça passe la douane et ça met plus de temps à arriver.

    Pour l'instant j'ai trouvé une motherboard pas trop chère (enfin je pense...) à 165.60$ CAN.

    Here's the link for canadian people who wants to buy a EPIA-V10000A for 165.60$CAN:

    I'm now looking for a cheap case (to fit in a radio slot) to order in canada

    If somebody know a good place...

    Well got all my parts from http://www.koonline.net/
    Except the Lilliput, I got it from C A R P O D . C A, but do not buy anything from him this guy.
    He is the worts person I have ever delt with, he lies and takes your money...He still owes me money for an undelivered product.

    mp3car.com has an on-line store you can get the screen from them at a decent price.

    The morex case does not fit in a DYN slot, the case is 10" deep. My DYN is about 6" deep.

    I put my case in the glove box, I'll have pictures soon. BTW my install is 99% complete, woohoo!!!!

    Guys we should organize a meet and if you need any help with your projects I'm glad to give it to you. You can learn from my mistakes...

    Yes I do, but I recentely installed the case in my glove box and these last few days it's been hot, not has hot as it will be. But the case stayed pretty cool. I'm not too worried about winter yes it will get to -45 but I think the PC will be OK.

    Wow, Montrealers!

    I'm on the plateau, I just got a test system up with an old laptop using a lilliput 7". I got into all this last year when i did a road trip to Arizona and used it with a GPS reciever to get me there and back safely. I picked up a case (C-138) from microbytes in Longeuil (the only one I could find locally), and waiting on a via ML8000a next week. Hopefully by next weekend I'll have everything together and can start looking at exactly how I want to semi-permanently install it.

    The big challenge in all this is trying to find a way to get things installed in a Jeep YJ, and not come out the next morning and find someone has served themselves to the whole thing.

    Et oui, je parle francais aussi!

    I'm going to be taking a course at Champlain St-Lambert... so I want a place thats as close (metro-wise) as possible to school... while still being on the island.. I'm open to other places, as well.. just 3/4s of the listings I see are for Plateau, or NDG.. :P

    W|ngz, I'd suggest building a solid metal box for the system, that can only accessed from the bottom, then use the meanest padlocks you can find to lock it to the chassis in back... all you can really do is use brute force to protect it..
