    1993 Mitsubishi Verada KR

    Hi Everyone,
    These are my first and second attempts at a carputer i hope you like my thread and thank you for taking your time to see my work, there are going to be pleanty of enhancements in the future like Frets on fire(guitar hero simulator), rear dvd screens, etc.


    Here is a list of the parts i used in the first version of my carputer

    USB 5.1 Sound Card
    7" touch screen(purchased on ebay)
    TinyXP
    RR
    latest version of winamp
    M2-ATX

    Parts Used for CarPC V2:

    VOOM 2 PC Case
    Intel Atom D945GCLF
    P4 1.6ghz
    1G DDR Ram
    20GB 2.5" HDD
    160GB 2.5' ecternal HDD

    In order to fit the carputer screen i had to remove the existing stereo from the car, there was only enough space in the dash for a 7" screen without to much modification here are some photos of the removal of the old HU and me fitting the screen in place

    i used the headrest fitting so i would have easy access to take the screen out when i needed to, so far it works great.

    For my first attempt i used an old dell i had lying around, it was slow and it was big so i tried to cut down as much of the exterior as possible

    and this is what it looks like in the boot, it took up way to much room for my liking and and combined with the sub it was just to much

    I ran this setup for a few months and it finally failed when the bios battery ran out, i couldnt be bothered trying to replace it so i decided an upgrade was in hand, i ordered all the new parts of either ebay or through the mp3car store luckily all this happened when the us dollar was so low so i snagged quite a few bargains ordering parts from the states

    here are some new pics of the second car pc

    The Fantastic looking VOOM 2 PC case

    it works much faster and has great hibernation times it takes about 10 seconds for it to resume and about 5 seconds to go into hibernation
    here are a few more pics just to fill out the collection

    OMFG, I love how fuking simple your screen was. You basically used a headrest version and stuck the shroud in the gap of you original bezel. Genius!!!!! I wish mine was that simple!

    I originaly wanted to have 2 metres of cables behind the screen so I could take it out and use obd for engine diagnostics whilst working on the engine, but I don't mind how it looks with the surround kinda suits the car

    It took me a few days but i got karaoke working i used UltraStar a singstar style program and i used the mics that came with my copies of guitar hero: wt and Rockband, there both logitec microphones i have them running off a powered usb hub in the back of the car,

    This is UltraStar the only down fall of this program is that it requires the keyboard to navigate the menu
