    1998 Dodge Neon R/T - Carputer Version 3

    Ok this is the 3rd version of my Carputer.

    1st Version: Screen on the Ceiling, with Mobo mounted on pegboard under dash.
    2nd Version: Screen in custom fiberglass dash, computer in custom box in trunk.
    3rd Version: Screen in non-custom dash, computer in case mounted in dash.



    Still a work in progress, need a airbag cover to finish that big hole in the dash. Needs to be secured, and I am still looking for a good way to power it. (Ver 1 & 2 used ITPS + PW-60a) I am now looking for a OPUS like solution wihtout the cost of the Opus. Looking at some of the alternatives..

    Specs:

    EPIA 800 Mobo
    40GB 7200 RPM HD
    128mb RAM
    Slim DVD-Rom
    Frodoplayer
    Lilliput


    The car (on right):

    It actually is in the dash, the area is cutout for it, and it sits in there flush. I did not make a custom fiberglass roof for this one though. My previous dash looked like this.. but I had problems and didn't like how it looked.



    Here is the newer one:
