    Out of curiosity, did the Aopen power pack for the carnetix work with this MP45-DR? I was thinking about doing something similar to this but was hesitant about going this route.

    Nice build!

    Just wondering how you got a hold of that little button panel? Did you fabricate that yourself?

    @acgott,
    The carnetix Aopen power pack is a direct plug-in for the Aopen MP945 (i.e. creates a Y split to you power button so it can turn the PC on / off via the ACPI wires).

    @sam0433450
    Thank you, although i had a little help but yes i fabricated the button panel myself in the end.

    Ah nice. I have a 2006 LT Focus which has pretty much the same facia as yours so I'm planning on putting a computer in. You mentioned that if you would do it again you would put a different screen in? Why's that and do you have any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Hey sam0433450,

    Yeah if i had my time again i would get the best 7" screen i could get (transflective) and get a din double adapter for the screen and the car, job done.

    Although having the extra 1" is nice it was too close for comfort and a lot of effort to get it to fit (i think there is about 2 mm to spare). The problem was not the width it was the height which forced me to get a customer built thing going on.

    Also the availability of good 8" screens compared to good 7" is a great deal less which in the end costs more.

    Hi SoulR,
    First of all nice car! And nice install. I've just bought Focus MK2.5 Titanium and I'm looking to put car pc in it. ( I had it in my previous car )

    Can you tell me a bit more about the screen you got? Which model is that exactly and what is your opinion on it? I would like to buy 8" Transflective but it cost like 360 :/ something like this: http://cartft.com/catalog/il/1096
