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:

Thanks, I have enough work, I only put a summary here. The idea is to put the keyboard on the hood, there would be disarmed and looks good. I am currently putting together a control with a rotary encoder, parts of mouse and joystick USB Type playstation. Soon photos on the forum "inputs"
Or perhaps keep the vents and the knobs on the sides and mount the screen in portrait down the middle? That may look even cooler!
