    89 accord, wat 2 do with it?

    well i has a 89 accord and i wanna no if i was 2 wire up a computa 2 it how would i go at it? i done a search, couldnt fin nething. heres a pic of the interior:

    i know i could put the cd rom were the stereo goes, but where could i put the mother board? i supose i can put it under the seat but if sum1 spills a drink or something, im fuked, and i dont have a IDE cable long enuf. but where could i put the mouse and the keyboard? i HATE touch screens, or them laptop style mouses, i like the normal keyboard and mouse. and how could i setup a LCD? i dont want a tiny screen wich u hav 2 squint at but i dont want a huge one which would be in the way, or in a position that sum1 clumsy can get easily break. how could i go about setting this setup? and also, how do i wire my comp up to the battery? lol (im doing a 2 battery setup, one for accesories and 1 for ignition/starting the car)

    oh yeah, i want this for the passenger, and the screen facing towards the passanger so it doesnt disturb the driver while driving

    this is just a dream for now untill i can afford 2 do this (i have a spare comp i can use 4 just seeing how things fit, but no screen)

    I would maybe try to put the lcd in that change thing (cassette holder?) underneath the radio mount maybe... i cant really see of anywhere else that would house a 7" lcd. As far as the motherboard goes, normally you dont build the computer inside the car, using the car as the computers case, you just build a computer like you normally would inside of its own case and just toss the pc itself in the trunk or somewhere. I would do some reading, theres a ton of info on this site. Last month was the first time i even knew that carputers as a hobby existed and today i have a fully operational laptop drivin', home built startup shutdown controller, gps enabled, custom fabricated console mounted 7" touchscreen LCD, carputer and i learned everything from just reading what was already posted somewhere.

    Now all i need is a good controller!

    you couldn't "fin nething"? on this entire forum? nothing at all? nothing on where to put a mouse and keyboard? nothing about where to mount your computer? nothing on how to setup an lcd? nothing on wiring the computer to the battery? if you can't find any information on this forum, you shouldn't be opening your hood.
