    Cool Merry everyone

    Hello everyone,
    My name's elmo, come from a modifying club... www.streetrace.co.uk

    Have an interest in "in car entertainment", i currently only have a company car but am planning on getting a project car later in the year

    i would be planning a Boot PC, connecting to a 7" lilliput screen into a reformed dash with USB headers, GPS (for sat nav), DVD, MP3 etc etc etc

    just found this site and it looks like it could be everything i need to get started

    SO HELLO!

    NOT AT ALL!

    im still saving the project car... its not just the CarPuter i wanna do
    im planning on the full chrome engine works, window tints and dropping the motor down a few CMs... THEN moving onto the computer

    I think i shall be using my current PC (and a new CPU) for the base system, currently its a Athlon 800 but the board will hold a 2K that will do for my needs, 384 Mb RAM in 128 + 256 chips, 20GB + 40GB HDDs, 100mb LAN card, DVD ROM, CD-Rewriter, graphics card is knacked so right now using the on-board

    Been making my shopping list:
    7" lilliput T/S
    2 USB Headers
    GPS Receiver
    NEW GRAPHICS CARD
    NEW CPU

    Have a few contacts through www.streetrace.co.uk that should be able to help with the fibreglass work on the dash, not really bothered about keeping head unit as im also planning on having a DVD RW set directly underneath the screen, which will handle all my needs for DVD, CDs... Planning on two USB ports in a panel underneath DVD drive that will allow me to plug my MP3 Player / Digital Camera in as both can be used as removable drives, this panel should also host the power on/off

    big plans i know but its what i want... and i SHALL have it done

    AND HAVNT DECIDED IF I SHALL WRITE MY OWN SOFTWARE OR NOT!

    I don't know if you have looked at power supplys but check out the opus 90w and 150w they are excellent power supplies that can withstand engine cranking. There are a couple other good ones around here too.
