nice install, I was thinking about doing the same thing but I don't know if I'll have enough room in my glove box. What did you use to mount everything in there?
EPIA 800, DWW-7VGA LCD w/Touchscreen, 256mb ram, dvd rom, ati radeon 7000 video card, 80 gb 3.5" hard drive.
How did you get the laptop to startup when the car turns on?
Very nicely done. Very clean. I assume that blue thing standing up in the coin holder is the antenna for your keyboard?
how about a pic of those subs
man i wish i could fit a computer in my glove box...i can't even fit a single cd in there...i mean there isn't really a reason i have a glove box...
enough whinning....nice job dude.

Thanks for stopping by. I've been away for a while, sorry I couldn't response to any of your comments.
bjm2020, I drilled the mobo directly to the glove box with some wood in the middle and run all the wires on the opening hole on top of it.
I don't set my computer to turn on with my inigition. I only use the computer at night or when I need the map (GPS). The main stereo system is from my Kenwood mp3 cd player. To turn the computer on, I hit the "RED" button on my customized controlled (as you see in the picture). Since I'm using winXP, I set the button to turn the computer into hibernating.
Hit once, it will be hibernate and turn off everything.
Hit again, it will come back up with everything I left before.
Btw, it's not a laptop. I just use the laptop's cdrom with a laptop to IDE device kit.
Skippman, yes, that blue antenna is for the wireless keyboard & mouse. I took it off the original case and customized there with my other buttons.
-B-e-N-, here we go, nothing's big, but I'm thinking of change my stereo system soon.
The subs when I was installing the system months ago.

My next generation Front End is right on schedule.
It will be done sometime in the next generation.
I'm a lesbian too.
I am for hire!
