    Talking 1997 Sunfire GT Installed FINALLY!!!

    Hey guys,

    First off I'd like to say be not afraid of the amount of dirt and unkept wires lol. I'll clean it... eventually. I was mostly just psyched to get the darn thing in after so many years of planning. So here's the specs:

    Compaq SFF EN Deskpro
    P2 450 192MB Ram
    60GB 7200RPM HDD
    Matrox PCI vid card for PSONE Screen
    Sounblaster Extigy Sound Card
    Dlink DWL-120+ USB Network Adapter
    Creative remote
    400watt Inverter

    The system itelf is pretty sweet it doesn't draw enough power to shutdown while cranking. Plus its almost small.

    Here's my car:

    Here you can see how non polished it looks at its current state

    You can see the network cable that I ran the led's and switch over (gone now)

    I still have to make an enclosure for the LCD, and clean up some of the cable runs, plus strap the computer more securely, but other than that she's purring like a kitten. I appreciate any comments other than clean your car. Toodles!

    its not a touchscreen, its a sony PSone screen.

    As for the install, good work but you might want to de-ghetto rig it.
    Get some bondo and make a nice bezel for the screen.

    Screen: Lilliput 7" touchscreen (Custom made Carbon Fiber Screen Enclosure)

    Look like no one take that clear plastic off the PSOne. I didn't. That plastic help cut off some glare.
