    Carputer in a DeLorean

    Where do you have the computer itself? Did you come to DCS2006? Did you see my carputer? Where are you located?

    Nice Work

    First off, great job, you've mad an amazing add to an already amazing car, I think they would have done this when they made them if the had the stuff to do it. Second, if you're goin for a whole futuristic look for your computer you could look into getting a Bluetooth hub for the carputer and buying one of these, its pricy for sure, but its cool enough to be worth it. I think I'm gonna get one for my Jeep project I'm gonna start soon.

    Thanks.

    Hi Dave. Im in the UK and dont get chance to fly to the states to visit DeLorean meets.
    I missed the big meet at Dunmurry earlier this year, but do attend some of the other UK DeLorean meet-ups, including Eurotec2007 which was held in Norfolk.

    Ive seen your website before Dave, and was very intrigued. My PC would have gone neatly behind the drivers seat (Like yours) but my car has an amplifier and sub tucked into that space. At the moment my pc is still on the rear shelf. This will be changed after Christmas when I continue with this project.

    Do you have any pictures of your build Dave? Would love to see how you've built your LCD bezel, and indeed what you've done with the vents etc...as well.
    Cheers.

    Great Car and Great installation! Super!
    Like in our lovely film "Back to the Future".
    By the way, do you know, is it possible to buy DeLorean in US or UK now?

    It is a great install. I too had worries when I first saw this years ago if it would destroy the car. But you pulled it off great.

    Sorry to hear about the injury, feel better soon! Then you can install the flux capacitor!

    Yeah thanks. I had a flux capacitor made by the guy who made the original props for the actual DeLorean in the film. His name is B F Coloumb (google him) He has some really cool stuff.

    Unfortunately, I had to sell mine as I was off work and needed the cash. I only got 250 for it and wish Id kept it now. But at least I can get another one.
