    1967 camaro 10.4" touchscreen

    Ok, I had to add some info and more pics of my completed project. This thread is for completed projects but I guess that would be pics of a car before you sell it cause we all know there is always something more that needs modified.
    My only regret is losing patience and installing the factory cable heater/defrost controls. I really wanted to install some actuators and a relay board.
    The specs on the carputer:
    1.2 ghz
    1 gig ram
    dvd burner
    80 gig HD
    10.4” liliput touchscreen
    USB TV tuner
    USB soundblaster that inputs to the Alpine CD receiver thru the ipod port
    USB Street atlas GPS
    The Fuel injected 327 c.i. motor has a Holley ECU that is serialed into the
    Carputer for real time engine tuning and monitoring all engine sensors and
    parameters
    14,000 MP3’s…did I say 14,000 MP3’s!!!!

    I have done 100% of the work on this car, from the one of a kind front grill, welding in body panels, replacing every wire, painting etc…
    I recently put 2000 miles on it traveling from the west coast to Montana and back. In the middle of the night the large GPS screen was awesome for highlighting changing road conditions thru the mountains. It almost turned driving into a video game.
    With my custom installed 2004R overdrive and large rear tires it turned the trip into a very pleasurable ride only spinning 1500 rpm’s at 75 mph.

    What works good is to mock it up with cardboard, then use the cardboard and trace it to sheetmetal. . I use cardboard as templates so I know what size to cut my metal. Newer cars have more plastic, but these cars from the 60's are pretty much all metal, so, metal and bondo works nice for mods.

    I love the car. It was very tastefully done. Custom built, but not overdone. There was another oldie on this site that was way overdone. It took the classic out of the car, which I greatly enjoy. I like the color...bit loud...I wouldn't want one that color, but still a very nice color.

    You are correct on which lilliput, it is the FA1042, i bought two screens a year ago, so just in case one fails in a couple years I got a brand new spare to replace it with I am getting old n blind so I opted for the large screen, I just was not impressed with some of the tiny gps stuff on the smaller screens. It works great if you pay attention to installing it so it is directed at your eye level when you are sitting on your seat, I think they also do good if you can tuck them down low in the dash out of direct sunlight
