    2007 Nissan 350Z

    Greetings! I spent so much time researching on this forum before I even purchased my parts that I figured I would post my creation and perhaps help someone else out a little.

    Car:
    2007 Nissan 350Z Touring
    Nismo Exaust
    Stillen Dual Cool-Air Intakes
    Front-Lip Spoiler

    Audio:
    JL 500/1 Amplifier
    JL 300/4 Amplifier
    JL 10W3v3-4 Subwoofer
    JL XR650-CXi Components
    JL XR650-CSi Components

    CarPC:
    Front End: Centrafuse
    Operating System: Windows XP Lite
    Motherboard: J7F3E1750
    Processor: 1.4GHz AMD Geode
    Memory: PNY 512MB DDR400
    Hard Drive #1: 100GB SATA
    Power Supply: M2-ATX
    Screen: Xenarc 700TSV
    Sound Card: Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook
    GPS: GlobalSat BU-353 USB
    Sirius Tuner: Sirius Connect + SC-C1 USB Interface

    Some Images:


    The car from the front.


    The two JL subs in a custom enclosure I put together and wrapped in color-matched vinyl.


    Two JL amps on a custom-made amp rack.


    The actual CarPC hidden where the old Bose sub was.


    Another picture of the CarPC mounted.


    Close-up of the CarPC.


    The mounted Xenarc 7" LCD. I took the old bezel and after about 2 days of Bondo work and lots of dermaling and sanding, it fit nicely into the spot where the old Bose head-unit was.


    Close-up of the Xenarc 7" LCD.

    The GPS antenna is mounted under the plastic covering the strut bar and the Sirius antenna is magnetically mounted to the roof of the car (b/c stupid me didn't remember that the metal tint would ruin the connection).

    I installed and wired everything (audio, carpc, etc) myself so if someone has specific questions on how something was done, please ask and I will do my best to help.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks for the comments.

    See, I thought about it, but then decided not to bother with one. I mounted it to some Lexan and then mounted the Lexan directly to the metal of the car. I added some shock absorbing foam under each mount. That part of the car is never exposed and the ventilation is better w/o a case.

    thats very true... but it would look so much cleaner and would be much easier to take out if you have to. plus with a decent case and well selected fan(s) you can have just as much ventilation with very little noise.
