    Mercedes CLK 230 Install

    Ok, my second carPC project. Nearly finished, just a bit of tidying up to. Awaiting an OPUS PSU, currently running on an inverter. I installed a new HU and Bluetooth car kit. This is just the dash area at night, also awaiting the completed 800x600 Mercedes skin from Feb....

    Cool setup. How did you mount the screen? Any pictures from the side that shows mounting?

    Thanks,

    Hi

    The screen is mounted (shoved I should say) into the remainder of my double din space, the merc actually has 2 slots, but I cut away the center to allow for a Double Din system, when I decided to go with the carPC route this left me with no center support, so putting the new HU at the bottom in a DIN holder secured to the sides of the car I wedged the screen into the top space using double sided tape (argh) between the two units, it's very snug and the front bezzels hide the white strip of tape. It shouldn't be too hard to remove in the future. Which may be very soon as the screen has had an intermittent fault on it since I got it from DigitalWW. I thought I'd sorted it, but its back.

    Anyway, this weekend coming I will add more pics and also the boot mount of the PC will be shown. When I've made it that is. :-)

    When I got my screen it powered up, but no display, I took it apart gently and it started to work, the screen back light came on, but after I re-assembled the screen....

    My screen HT power is flaky, the screen just blanks and a tap to the side fixes it. I think it's a faulty connection, but it's so cramped in there. I tried to fix it, but it made no difference.
