You guys are great with the miles of knowledge here on the forum and great companies to deal with like logic supply who advertise here made my job very easy.
Edit: special thanks to Roland and Dan for answering all my Hardware Q? and pushing me to a more powerful setup than my old Via system.
Kudos to all here, ChrisG
thanks for the complements... Most of you all are to blame for my new CarPC addiction!!!!
I think anyone that has the _____ to cut up the dash of a brand new car deserves serious respect.
My car is older, and a lot cheaper to replace the whole dash (I've got a spare) so it's not such a big deal if you miss with the saw or dump resin all over it.
The car's barely off the showroom floor and you've hacked a big hole in it.
By the way, how's the car? They look soooo sweet. Chrysler sure can design a body. I remember several years ago , I think it was Csaba Csere (Editor of Car & Driver) that said if cars were sold on looks alone, Chrysler would dominate the market. I, myself am a GM guy, but I really like several of the new DaimlerChrysler's in production.
So, have you already started plans for part II of the CrossfirePC?
Keep up the good work,
I know what you mean Superduck. After a year and I still haven't have a gut to pop the radio bezel out of my Matrix to see if the Lilli will fit in there. I have a hard time dealing with warranttee work at the dealer (oh you blew up the engine because you swap the radio). That kind of stupid clam you know.
BTW a 2 thumbs up for a nice and clean install + a freaking BIG GUT to breakup the brand new car for a PC install
Nice job! That looks sweet! I know the pain of of hacking your new ride to install the PC.
Thanks for the props. The replacement pieces were pretty affordable if I screwed up to bad. The car is a pretty nice out of the box rig.... $10,000 less than a Merc SLK. Same platform and made in the same plant in germany as an SLK.
Designed by Chrysler ..... Made by Daimler.
It has dual spark per cylinder.... like a hemi.... was a bit concerned about coil interference but no such issue happened thank God.
