    Thumbs up Mac Mini MINI

    It's only fitting to have this combination.







    I've got the MINI & the Mac MINI. Soon to have the New Lilliput 7" touch screen and hopefully the powersupply 1st of April.

    Wow! It's like the mini case matches the mini trim. Can't wait to see the finished install. Post your progress in the worklogs section when you get underway.

    I have the big speedometer in the center and no navigation screen. I plan to modify the cup holder mount to attach the screen to it where it sets in front of the radio and auto a/c controls. Then it will swing away to the right to reveal the radio & a/c. My volume control for the radio is on the steering wheel. I'll try to photoshop an image of this setup.

    If all this doesn't work right I may embed the screen in the radio / a/c area and move all the components down. Then place the mac mini in the glove box or add a parcel shelf under the steering wheel sides dash.

    Mutilator is also doing a CarPC in a Mini Convertible, he has integrated the screen fully into the dash, I think hes posted pics somewhere on here.

    noice install. somehow, I knew it was only a matter of time before there was a Mac mini Mini, (or mac mini squared). Cool idea too, with the hinge. I dont think i would've been able to pull that off.
