    2001 Honda Civic Sedan Carputer.

    Ok im finally done!
    took me about 2 weeks to install everything.

    1.2 GHZ IBM thinkpad laptop with thinkpad dock.
    350 watt inverter.
    Stock head unit.
    7" touchscreen monitor.
    Playstation 2.

    Basically i have the dock mounted in the trunk and i just dock the laptop whenever i go cruising. the laptop is powered of DC-DC adaptor and the inverter is for the PS2.

    painted the bondo black, this pic was taken before it was painted.

    pic of the back of the lcd.

    here is the redone console.

    middle of painting, putting on two more coats after this pic.

    here is the final results
    sorry for the crappy pics i took them with my sony clie,

    head unit relocated. i didnt mold it all the way to the black part cuz im planning to get an aftermarket later on.

    that black thing on the bottom is the IR sensor for the remote. i still havent found a place for it yet so i just stuff it in the little compartment under the head unit.
    funny story, when i was reconnecting the HU back in the time was exactly 1:00 so the clock is matched up to the real time.

    BTW my cup holders are useless!!!
    i think once i get a smaller HU i will be able to fit cups in there again.

    That is such a great place for that LCD. Very nice fabrication. I wish I had mine placed that high with a nice inset to cut down on glare.
