15" LCD 2001 Sierra 4x4 Ext cab
I see I am not alone in the car PC craze:), great site. Custom designed and built system including the custom water cooled PC case. The water cooling allows for reliability on the hottest days. The Wireless net working connects to the house to download any and all MP3, DVD, and MPEG files for play on the 15" LCD display. I have to admit I am a bit jealous of the compact car design with center consoles providing a great place for the 5-7" TFT LCD displays. The 15" is from a desktop Philips unit that I de-cased.
The overwhelming size of the clear acrylic case is for the water cooling multiple drives and the learning curve of using acrylic for the first time. The board is painted with neon paint, water has neon die, UV lights activate the paint and die.
The system will also auto detect open networks while driving along such as Starbucks or Hilton Hotels.
Updated: Decided to build an enclosure for the 15" LCD and ITX system. The rest of the photos are under GMC mobile linux on my site above. As I add new features I will update this post. The final stages of Slackware (linux) wirless to the house server for media file download is complete.
