I using the 2140 DC-DC regulator when it was in my trunk I couldn't run PC for more thatn 20 minutes on a hot day without it shutting down. Keep in mind I live in South Florida :flame: hot as hell during the summer.Quote:
I saw what you did for your install. Looks good! Did you have heat issues in your trunk? I haven't had any yet. I didn't want to put it in the glovebox because I use mine heh.
Damn your install looks too good making me look bad :)
where did you get/buy the servo motor and how much did it cost, I'm looking into making a similar setup, thanks!
Servo's can be had at any hobby shop. Since I'm in Canada I bought mine at http://www.robotshop.ca/ and it was something like $15 +shipping. To control the servo I programmed a PIC micro chip in assembly and created a small circuit board to interface with the servo, LCD (to turn the LCD on / off), DSATX (for startup / shutdown), and the button to open / close the screen.
This has to be one of the nicest screen installs around...:)
simply amazing. Now thats a hot install.
awesome install man.
wel im a bit sorry that i didnt buy the RX-8, it was that or either the civic Si or the Eclips, erll eclips is too heavy and i like the civics gas milage so the roitery was out, I love the car and wish i went for it but the gas milage would just kill me...
Any car i was looking at was for a carpoter aplication and i love that the rx8 has this potion, its realy cool...
I had a bezel for my car before i had my car(4month backorder on the Si)
Again love the car and the screen, But anyone can cram a screen in that space You did it seamlessly... Bravo.
i wanna know how much you could make me one for, not the pc just the center dash and the ashtray email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also would be interested in purchasing the screen and ashtray setup!!!!
Please PM me if your interested. I will make it worth your while
