This isnt where the PC will sit. Im contemplating 2 options.
(1) Take out the bass speaker and mount it in the space behind the drivers seat. Then build the bass speaker into the back board.
(2) Build a fibreglass (Carpeted) enclosure that will house all the gubbins on the back shelf, and still leave some storage space. (I have a few nifty plans scratched up)
It works !
Getting the leather centre console back into position.
Fire it up !
After a few test runs, driving round, trying satnav, playing music etc etc, I noticed a very unwanted effect. Terrible engine whine through the speakers. I tried plugging my headphones directly into the PC, and there was no whine. It seemed like the problem was between the pc and the amp. Looks like a ground loop. So I went out and bought a Ground loop isolator from Maplins (Britsh version of Radioshack) for £8.99
Cured it in one !
Screen saver....Sorry.... It just had to be done.
Last photo.....The finished running product.
People may have noticed, I still hadnt fitted my ashtray back in. This is because im attempting to fabricate a hidden power swith for the pc, and a couple of USB ports in there.
Well, that about it. Just a few odds and end to tidy up. But for the most part, its up and running.
***UPDATE*** Ive been ill for a year after an idustrial accident so ive not been able to continue this project until now. Im in the process of building the pc into a small storage area in the DeLorean. Pictures will be available soon (On going)
