    I'll start with showing my project car - I picked brand new 2006 Chrysler 300 because of styling and comfort as well as space I will need to install parts of larger size. So this is my ride






    and I picked trunk to house my PC

    this is my brand new ATX computer case - Got it from Fry's for like $85. I went with this one because of extra space if I need to upgrade my components as well as 3 clear sides - I'm thinking to install LED lights inside so whenever trunk is open interier of the PC will glow providing light to the trunk



    inside of the box



    front view




    extra space i was talking about

    Motherboard - I went with VIA EPIA SP-13000, of course brand new. Bought it from mp3car.com for $200 something. I must compliment their fast delivery - I got it in like 3 days selecting ground shipping

    HD - I bought Hitachi laptop Hd with 80 gigs of space from mp3car.com - here you may see it installed and connected to PS/motherboard



    as for Power Supply, I had to get rid of bulky AC-DC PS that came with the case

    and went with new M2-ATX-HV 6-32V Intelligent Automotive DC-DC ATX PS - here installed and connected to the rest of the components

    inside of the case needed a little bit of persuasion to house the PS but I found the solution

    first problem with this install I had was the length of IDE cable - since online stores tyhat are offering exact size I need (10 ft - from trunk to center console - picture bellow)



    are too expensive i decided to build my own. I bought regular size IDE cable and simply extended existing wires

    I just ordered 10.4" touchscreen I will be fabricating into my center console as well as pair of 7" headrest monitors with built in DVD/CD/MP3 players - I should get it in about 3-4 days from gooddeals18.com. Of course pictures will follow.

    IDE is only supposed to be good for a 3 foot run (or so). you may run into signal degredation and all sorts of weird problems. That's why people use usb for long runs.

    Not saying you will, but it's a high probability................
