Good for you.
Be sure to show us some photos of your progress!
The rest of the parts for my carputer finally arrived today. I decided to do it simple for this first attempt. This is what I have:
160W power supply
20 Gig Hitachi Hard Drive (I had sitting around in an old laptop)
VIA EPIA-MII10000 with integrated 1ghz cpu
The screen is mounted in a tray in the center of my dashboard (2004 F-150). Im just using the dash mount bracket that came with it. I wanted to keep my head unit so im still not sure what im going to do with the screen. I will be building a mount for it. I just assembled the computer and tested it out with my jumpstart box and it seems to be working fine. I hope to get it installed this weekend. I just wanted to post that im over this first hurdle and pretty excited about it haha.
Yeah really. I'm almost done as well. Got everything packaged and working. This left to do are:
- Fab a new bezel for the TS.
- Finish my modified BMV2 skin so that it looks more OEM.
- Decide on a GPS program, get that working and embbed that in RR.
- Embbed my OBDII app into RR.
I'm getting a bit anxious as my CarPC has been sitting on my bench now for the past two months.
