    -- 1981 Ford LTD --

    Hello, my name is Adam, and I drive a 1981 Ford LTD, and it is probably the funnest car I have ever driven. I am thinking about building a carputer,

    I was thinking about doing something similar to what this guy did for his Crown Vic, but instead of making slots for gauges, I will make it so I can fit a screen hopefully 7" touch screen or so. [Here is what it looked like after he finished]

    I have done lots to this car already

    Enclosure Build
    Sub In The Enclosure

    All I have left to sound deaden is my passenger side doors, the roof, and various small spots.

    Looks great and I like it. Also i think you can paint it or use some decorating material for the box. How does it sounds?
    respect to you
    400Watt CarPC power supply for powerfull systems- thaks for Beta testers- it was perfect.

    Remember - AMD Athlon XP (socket A) powers from 5v rail in most times !

    Thumbs up Welcome!!

    Welcome, I am still new here, too.

    I used to drive a 1981 Ford Land Yacht, I mean LTD. Giant car, but it can be fun. Mine had a big block, fast off the line, just beware of the corners.

    I now have a full size van (just a hair longer), a 1996 Mustang Cobra (Toy), and a 1997 Honda Del Sol (Daily driver Great gas mileage and it fits in the back of the van ). I am modifying all three, just a slow process.

    Good luck with your LTD.

    Trying to learn how to fix crap my self too, and I think the Ford 302 is a good engine to learn with. I am debating on whether or not I should use old POS HP I have setting around 700mhz though :-\, I will just get a more appealing case and put a crapload of fans in it.


    edit--

    I like my Digital Designs 2515a, I want louder though. I am thinking either of Sound Splinter RL-P18 or RD Audio Alpha 18". Either one I get will get about 1600-2000 watts of power.

    The center console is cool, but I bet it is a PITA for the driver to change the channels on his CB!
