    WRX carputer project (working...)

    Hey everyone,

    I've not posted too much, but been following to boards for awhile (now as a registered member!). I started my project for my 2004 WRX a week ago, and started a blog to document it. It'll be mostly custom fabrication, as I'm just using a laptop as my computer. If you're interested, check it out at:

    I hope to have it done in a week or two.

    Just a quick question... where the hell does a 21 year old engineering student get enough money for a 2004 Subaru WRX and have money to install a CarPC??

    Has daddy possibly funded some of this?

    What the hell is that supposed to mean?

    I've actually done a few co-ops, which pay pretty well. And no, daddy didn't pay for any of this, it's all came out of my pocket.

    Sounds like somebody is mad that they couldn't make it as an engineer.

    Back on topic. I like the way your stuff is coming along. Instead of moving my clock down to the ashtray like you did, I plan to cut out the auto plug and put my DVD player there. My TS is mounted where the radio is and I plan to put the performance gauge pack up on top. I think I can live without a clock anyways.

    Cool install, parents used to own an wrx but we got rid of it because we got a dog

    we now own a Subaru Forister. i dont think my parent will be 2 pleased if i started hacking up to a carputer.

    I should be getting a car soon so not long till i can install a carputer. i have most of the hardware. all i need is the screen.

    Yeah, right now the install is going a bit slow... I just got back to school and am loaded up this semester with classes.

    The console I'm making to replace the clock insert is ... interesting to say the least. I realized I need some sort of top cover also to block out the sun, so that's in the very early stages of fabrication. Hopefully I'll get some time to work on it this week, but it's looking good so far. Oh yeah, the glare is pretty bad, so I'll need to tint the back windows.
