    Acura CL trunkputer finally done!

    Here it is... if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask... it's 95% finished, still a few minor things left to do. Right now it is fully functional.

    Thanks... It might not look like it, but it took me an enormous amount of time to complete... And I still have a few things to add/change. There are so many issues when designing a Car Computer it's not even funny. It must have taken me at least 10 times the amount of time I thought it would take me...

    But is it all worth it??? You better believe it!!!

    one thing i have learned is "your carpc" is never done. You'll always find something to add, or something to change.


    Awesome setup you got there. Like very mucho

    bad azz setup there...This one rates as one of the top 5 installs here in my opinion...

    Can you give some specs for your screen and computer?

    Fantasy: My SUB is running at a NORMAL level, it doesn't overpower the other speakers and it is enclosed in a PORTED box... So far haven't had any problems with my HARD DRIVE.

    I was really not satisfied with the front dash trim, and for some unknown reason, it was shrinking (I guess the glue dried up, or had a chemical reaction with the vinyl I used)... Anyways, I redid my dash trim today, and here are the pictures:
