Newbie who has a few questions. . .
I'm new here at the MP3CAR.com forum. I have been all over this forum looking for insites and information on designing and building my own CarPC. So far I have a couple of ideas of what I want, and how i want to do it. but I have no skills in designing boxs and fiberglassing. That I will have to just take it and run. But here are my questions and I hope that someone can help me.
1.) I'm building a box to hold two Optima batteries and my power distribution. For two reason, first to back up the CarPC, and second for my system. I know how I'm going to wire it but what would be the best, Fiberglassing or carpeting? and I want to put in a plexi glass window to show off all the wiring and such. So I'm looking for a website that has alot of information or tutorials on building enclosures, adding windows and much more.
2.) I'm using a gigabyte mother board with a pentium 4. What is the best dc-dc to power it up other than to use a power inverter?
3.) I have read a lot about people using laptop hard drives in car pc, now are they using laptops as there carpc or are the using a regular pc with a laptop hard drive? and how is the best way to mount a hard drive where it does sustain alot of vibrations?
Thanks for your help.
