    95 Miata, My first carputer

    This is my first post and my first attempt at a PC in my Miata. It took me a few days to get it right but here it is. I used a Dell Inspiron 2100 as the computer, a power on module, and a Boost cell as the modem.

    i imagine you live in an okay area?

    i'd be terrified of someone sticking a knife through my soft-top and taking off with the laptop

    how's the boost cell connect up? usb?

    I live in a decent area and the laptop is out of sight behind the seat. The Boost phone is connected via USB I got on ebay. Most of the time I place a fake stock face I made to cover the screen and radio.

    oh right on man, the fake face makes it look like there's nothing to see in the car..

    and yeah i thought the miata was a 2-seater after i'd already opened my big mouth and posted. :/

    just out of curiosity what is that motorized lcd unit on the top 1-DIN slot? is it custom? I have a miata as well and am trying to build a carputer essentially exactly the same is that.
