    Thumbs up New guy checking in...

    Hello ladies and gents. I am new to the idea of Car PCs. I got interested in the idea a few weeks ago, so I bought "Build Your Own Car PC", by Gavin Harper,and now I have a million and one questions. I imagine that this is the place for answers.

    See you around.

    Check the link in my signature for the FAQ, it's another good starting point. There's a lot of good information on the forums here.

    Do take lots of pictures during your install!

    Check the FAQ link at the top of the forum and also the video link in my signature.

    Gavin's book is one way to build a car PC. There are other ways and, of course, the technology has moved on since it was written.

    When you've got some ideas, post them up in the Newbie - Proposed setup forum.

    I already read the FAQs, you are correct, lots of good info. As for Gavin's book, it was a great read, took me about 2.5 hours straight, cover to cover!!! Awesome info, cleared up alot of things that I was a little fuzzy on, more specifically, it enabled me to ask my questions more clearly.

    Actually, I have already modified my initial plan (to buy all new hardware) to pilferring and reusing tower (I already have the tower) hardware. I will get my thoughts together and post up in the Newbie Proposed Idea thread.
