2005 TrailBlazer Custom Dash Mounted PC
Ok, while the project has not yet begun physically, I just recently acquired a previous member's CarPC, to install in mine.
I have been lurking on this forum for a little over 3 years now, saw a lot of great things going on, and just never bit the bullet and dove into it head first. Like many people these days, my ideas and desires are much larger than my wallet lol!!
So after getting many ideas throughout the years, I decided to do a random search for my vehicle type back in January (I don't know why I did not see the thread sooner, I really am amazed about this myself), but I found a really awesome install thread started back in 2007. The last posting in the thread was the middle of 2008, and he has not been in the forums since 2011. The OP left his contact information in his final posting, so I took a shot in the dark and reached out to him. VERY quickly I received a reply with lots of information from him, and he offered the item for sale to me, as it was removed approx 2 years ago due to a service issue with his vehicle, and never reinstalled.
I jumped at the opportunity, and Mark sent the item before receiving any form of payment, so as to get shipping costs, which he sent me an invoice for. Mark has been in contact with me via email as well as having a nice long phone conversation with him the other day, and he gave me plenty for information.
I have powered up the unit to check it out, and its just raising more questions for me, as this is my first venture into a CarPC, and the software and other things he had installed on it.
I do not have pictures of my own yet, the install has not begun, but I wanted to start this thread while I had the chance, throw out some links, and hopefully I don't get too many questions to ask, and can find it myself, or post those in a more appropriate forum!
Thanks for looking, I will update soon with pics, and maybe videos if needed. Please see the links below!
