Nice... But what happen to you AC controls?
turns out I bought a car with a dud AC compressor...saving up to have it replaced then relocating the controls to the ash tray compartment...baby steps lol
any opinions on the gloss finish...? i rather regret not going for a dark matt gray
IMHO, an uneven surface with a high gloss finish will just magnifies the flaws. Don't get me wrong here, I love your work there (been a fan of Audi, especially the B5 as it's getting cheaper and more attainable these days!).
I think there's some B5s round here with a relocated AC controls.
Good job man, good job.
Good job on the bezel man. I went for more of a textured finish, and I think it turned out pretty good. The climate control surround I made out of plexiglass and it was a ***** to do. Click the pic to go full size. There's a bunch more in my putfile if you want to check them out. Any questions, IM me and I'd be happy to answer them.
looks like a good install!!!
one question though?
how is the temperature where you mounted the PC?
was wondering hoe the environment was in that position?
All seems well so far... I mean it obviously isn't the best place to mount the PC as far as ventilation is concerned but I have not had any issues in 5 months. I made my screen detachable so I occasionaly check the temp. On some occasions the motherboard cooling fan is not even running. Also being a mini-ITX it doesn't produce too much heat.
