    The motherboard is a desktop motherboard, a ITX board. I have powered the motherboard with a M2-ATX DC-DC powersupply which gives 150W. This powersupply handles the power on and shutdown functions itself via the powerswitch header on the motherboard.



    In princip you could use a PS/2 mouse as such as a volume controller but as I wanted to have a more OEM look I made some changes to the mouse so that I get the OEM volume controller feel / look.

    I canīt really pin point a tutorial how to make this volume control, but here is one link: $10 volume knob fabbed.

    Basically what you need to do is find a old PS/2 mouse which has got a rotary encoder on the wheel axle and replace the encoder with for example as I did with a ALPS EC11B encoder. The Alps EC11B encoder has got a in-built switch so with this you get both rotary movement and push movement. You donīt need any drivers for a PS/2 mouse but Girder or Volumouse is needed to make the fabbed mouse control the volume. I can post my Girder configuration file here if you want (I canīt now because I donīt have access to the file in my car).

    If I forgot to mention something please ask.
    Hi Tom,

    Would you post the config file if you havent' done so already...

    thanks

    I'm working on placing an overhead monitor for my kids in the back + rear view camera.

    don't know if i'll be able see it myself (as it is rather close to the side of my face). but for backup purposes it will do...

    In that case, my screen is very readable.

    Sorry for the delay on this but everytime I have been in the car I have not remembered or then I have not had my USB-stick with me... Anyways here is the config file for Girder v3.xx, or it is even 2 of them. One for only Middle button MUTE function, and one with MUTE and VOL Up/Down on wheel. The reason for 2 files is that I felt that Vol Up / Down from Girder was too slow so I then installed Volumouse to do that for me and only use Girder for muting. If somebody has got a better solution on this, please share it with me.

    Beside this configuration file you need of course Girder v3.xx and the Girder mouse input plugin. Donīt know if newer versions of Girder is compatible with these configuration files.
    Enjoy!

    Long time no update, but here comes one with lots of pictures



    Lanzar Heritage HR6.1 speakers, 6.5" mids and 1" tweeters


    Original front speaker


    New front speaker installed


    Original rear speaker


    New rear speaker installed


    Rearview camera installed. You can see it in the top right corner of the licenseplate


    Nightview with rearcamera. A small bear on the ground.


    Just to show how close the bear on the ground was.


    Camber, toe and tension bars


    Autumn 2009


    Autumn 2009, here you can see the new rear spoiler also

    Have now skipped the idea with putting a subwoofer in the rear quarter panel since this area first of all is not airproof to the outside of the car and second very diffcult to get the airpressure from inside the panel inside the car without having to destroy the the plastic sidepanel. So instead Iīm now on the idea that was proposed a few posts ago, that is to put the speakers pointing upwards in the trunk. At the moment this seems to be the best solution.

    Looks great! I've always loved the 90's Nissan 200s and 300s.

    Wow, love your setup (Yes the car also)
    I'm thinking about a carputer setup myself. I have a Toyota HiAce 4wd campervan 1999, so I thinking about two screens, a touchscreen like yours up front and a 17" or bigger back in the camping area (smal van). But one big problem is power.
    How much power do your system draw from the battery?

    Thank you!

    Sounds like a nice setup that you are planning. I have not measured how much power it draws so itīs difficult to give you any numbers. I know there are calculators for the power consumption on computers out there, but where I donīt know.
