    Yeah, really nice car! I'm going to be the only one at my school with a carputer setup, too. (Putting it in my Del Sol, and that alone is a challenge due to no space). I only know of one other person that had a system with LCD, and that was someone like 2 years ago and I guess his got stolen. Next installation... my pager alarm system lol
    1995 Talon TSi AWD, 1992 Lexus SC300... LexusPC is finally almost ready for install!

    Great looking car to bad that in Europe they are very rare to find.

    I was 14 when I started driving. I had a hardship license, I was only suppose to drive to and from school. I didn't have a car like his though....

    i hope that power supply is not just sitting loose ontop of your motherboard. at very least, i would put a sheet of plastic between the two., but it would be better if you mounted it in the proper location, or at least screwed it to the back of the case, so it's suspended above the motherboard.

    i ruined a motherboard that way once. i had a second powersupply loose on the floor of the case to power additional drives. i tilted the case while it was on and it slid against the mb and shorted it out.

    nice car man...you are lucky.

    have you considered an in-dash housing instead of the glass work? That would make a pretty sleek setup. Basically it would look the same as you have now, but you would be able to hide it (from thieves, cops, etc).

    also, how hot does your computer get in there?

    Haha, it's not just sitting there. It's bolted to the case where the old PS was. I was just testing the OPUS in the picture.

    I've yet to have any power issues... I don't really know the signs of not having enough power though, restarting maybe?

    I'll definitely look into the indash housing. As for my computer, it fits snugs right into the spare tire slot directly to the right of my sub box.
