    DAAAAMMMMNNNN!!!! Nice! I have to get into getting my blazer S-10 into shape for my carpc, I have all of the components, but I'm too busy to actually take all the things apart and get it properly installed. All I have is a ghetto-half a*s install. I have the 7-inch touchscreen, 2.4Ghz XCube, 512MB, 120GB portable (USB powered) 40GB Boot, RadioShark, Powermate, Belkin F8T013 BT dongle, USB game controller, M2-ATX, PCI TV card, backup camera. I think this summer will be IT!

    Nice install, More pics would be nice so I can get motivated.

    98 Blazer LT, MP915-B, EBY701

    here is my blazer:


    here is my pc:


    and here is my screen:


    there computer is going where my tape deck used to be.


    that image was borrowed from the person who came up with this great idea on the s10forum.

    heres a picture of mine. not as good of a picture, but u get the idea.


    and here is where my screen is going. ive already started trimming it to fit.


    its mounting through the back.


    here is how much i have left to trim away.


    i am using roadrunner as my front end. and so far it seems that i am the only one finishing a project like this. all the other ones i have seen havent had any recent updates.

    my future plans are to get a audigy nx and make a center channel and a sub box that has a factory look.

    well heres my update. i got my 99 bravada dash bezel in today. and those are DD stock. so i hot glued my screen housing in and put my screen in after the hot glue dried. (dont worry, its not staying like that) its grey and matches nothing with my interior. ill be painting that black later. well i turned on my screen as a test, and its now only a blank white screen. not even the osd works. im kinda worried. im going to make a post on this and search about it. if its toast, then il gonna buy another one. the housing is already in the bezel, so y not make the fabbing easy? here are my pictures of it.

    at first my screen was white screen of death. that was due to me not cliping one of the ribbon cable clips down. it works now! i am so damn happy! looks like my blazer is the only one becoming complete. with pictures and millions of dumb and newb questions to prove it! now its picture proof time!

    heres my update. the stuff i used to secure the pc in the exact place i wanted it. this stuff confored to the exact shap and dried that way so it fits in perfectly. heres what i used:
    oops, that not it! heres what i really used. doesnt taste as well.....
    the begening process. i used foam blocks that my pc came with to set it at the correct level so it sits flush with the opening.
    they arent pictured, but u can see where they used to be. once that shape was the way i wanted it
    i put the pc upper shell into its fitted spot and foamed it a bunch more to conform to its shape.

    here is how it looks cured and the pc shell not in place. perfect! just perfect!





    here it is after i covered the pc and foamed it to make a bottom mount. it didnt cure correctly because i fell asleep and woke up at 830 thinking it was morning and took the bottom layer off. it had only been about 4 hours since i layed the foam down. it takes 8 hours to cure.



    so ive got it sitting in my bathroom with the heater vent on so it can cure correctly. better than a cold bathroom, outside or in a garage. oh, i covered the entire underside between this foaming and my first set so its a removable shell i can trim later to allow for ventalation. and to pull the pc out to upgrade later. there really isnt anything to upgrade on this one now. its maxed out. foam is drying and not going to touched till i wake up later tomarrow afternoon.

    This should be in the Worklogs section until finished. Nice work using the foam to suspend the computer housing though.
