    big power in small space

    Hey guys been reading the forum for months, and finally decided to get started on my carputer. I have a '99 Chevy S10 pickup truck, regular cab, manual trans. therefor giving me a very small space to work with. I wanted to ask the pros a few questions before i start buying my parts.

    Main usage of PC will be for mp3, divX/Xvid, and eventually GPS. Was wondering what would be a good LCD screen for this, if i can get away with not buying a Lilliput 7" touch it would be nice .

    Another question is about mounting the LCD in the dash. i have a few pictures below one of the dash then one that i puked out in photoshop. hehe. seems like a lot of work rerouting AC controls, mounting HU in ashtray, then LCD in dash.

    any advice would be great.

    I have a 98 Blazer, so we have the same interior. This is not mine, but how I plan to mount the LCD. It's a 10.4". You can also take your AC/Heat controls and put it where your ashtray is right below.

    is that an actual 10.4 installed or just a photoshopped image? also if i put the ac controls where the ashtray is then where do you think a good spot would be for the head unit?

    if that was photoshopped than that guy should be making a lot of money doing celebrity body swaps... I think it's an actual install.

    it's an actuall install...he used to have his own site up...but it's gone bye bye awhile back...

    he extended the vaccum tubes and put the heat/ac control on the front angled part of his center console, it look reall bad ***!

    here it is
