    91 honda accord install

    Heres a few pics of my install in my 91 Honda Accord lx. Right now it is still pretty ghetto, ive got a long way to go before everything is how i want it. heres a picture of the car its goin in...



    i bought a 1.8 ghz intel pentium 4 ASUS barebones computer online. It has 256 mb of ram, a 120 gb harddrive, and a dvdrom. I decided to mount it in the trunk along with my inverter. ill be getting an opus sooner or later when i get some more cash.






    heres a picture of the screen through the window



    some pictures of the console. I have the inverter connected directly to the battery, and when i flip the switch the inverter gets power to turn on the computer and screen. i also installed an led next to it to tell me if the computers power is on.




    The screen......




    I mounted the screen on the stock stand with some velcro. works well because i can take it out and put it in my glovebox when i leave my car someplace it could get stolen.


    Lastly, the glovebox with my video inputs





    Future plans....

    looks pretty good to me. There was a guy a while back with a car computer in a bashed up wooden crate... that gets the 'gheto' award.

    Man... I can hear it from here... "STEAL ME!!!" Good job making it removable, though... Don't forget to take it off the dash when you park... Busted windows != fun

    Ahhhh the asus pundit good choice! You may want to mount it vertically to save wear on your hard disk. Once i take some pictures of my setup I'll post them up. I have a Pundit box mounted to my sub box. It is spaced a few inches away and also has foam around the mounting brackets for shock resistance.

    Good job so far

    I know this is (sort of) old post, but thanks for posting this! I'm thinking about getting a 4th gen accord pretty soon, and I'm trying to plan out my carputer setup. But I didn't know the details of the interior of the car, so I had no clue where to place the monitor. I really like your idea (making it removable), so if u don't mind I'm gonna copy it, because I need to have a HU (so can't mount it in HU location), not easily visable by thieves - thats my main concern (if it's removable then it's not visable at all ), and I don't know how to fiberglass (so no custom dash stuff). So thanks again!

    One question for you tho - how is the glare in that location? I plan to tint my windows (5% all around (except windshield of course) most likely), so I know that will reduce glare quite a bit, but how bad is it in that location?

    im tinted at 35% on the sides and back and nothing on the windshield, and there is no difference usually between the windows down and up. I think that most of the sunlight comes in from the windshield, but im not positive.

    Glare pretty much sucks, but i can always read the song that is playing clearly. theres really no good spot on the dash to put it without glare. I think depending on what kind of skin you are using you should be alright.

    LOL! What a brilliant alternative - if your carputer doesn't fit your current car, just get a new one that fits the carputer!
