1984 Renault Fuego 8" laptop carpc
Hi, I'm Nelson of Argentina, I have a Renault Fuego 84
and install a CarPC build with a notebook HP Omnibook X3, a lcd 8" and some things more.
The text is translated by google, so I apologize if something is not understood. I make a summary of foulbrood did, and it was hard work.
First, a picture of the notebook with the screen broken, so the idea of using it for the project:
After disarming the whole note, cut the base to the minimum required:
With an aluminum, assemble the base and lid:
add some connectors, the idea is to use the minimum number of connectors:
and this is the finished base with all placed:
Then comes the cover, which bears the keyboard and touchpad
some cuts in the middle
A little ingenuity and hammer in hand
The case paint ready to send
After painting, all armed
As I can not tuchscreen screen, I monitored via a joystick, so this:
step to this:
and finished this one:
Now follow the screen is a little big and not within the dashboard, so I had to make a stand, and by the way, I can easily extract:
Testing support in paper
And from paper to aluminum
After painting, testing in the car
And this is the idea to place a keyboard
Missing a lot to do and add, now I'm working on a new control, which publishes in the relevant section when completed.
We also publish the skin, which I did based on the Elite lite 1.1 and take some things from other skins, I did this especially to be used without touchscreen.
