    Talking 1995 Mercury T-Racer in-dash install finished!

    Ok, it's been a long time in the making, but it's complete (except maybe software tweaks). Here is a pic of my car first.

    Pretty ain't it?

    Here is my dash complete with Glassed-in screen


    Close-up of screen:


    I decided to mount my CarPC into my Dash where the passenger-side airbag used to be. Nobody ever rides with me anyway.


    Here is a close up pic of my screen on and playing a song:

    It's actually purple, but looks a little blue in this pic.

    What do you think guys??

    My inverter is hidden under the mid console. I have like 4 relays that control it and my cube timer for PC Shutdown. I have a custom pioneer ip-bus audio input that I did myself. That's about it. Oh yeah, a remote starter, for those cold New-Mexican nights...

    EDIT: Forgot to post, but this car is now dead. Too bad, it was a good one...

    Oh yeah, fiberglass work is suprisingly easy, just time consuming.

    It was a stupid prank. I had honda emblems and all on my car for a while! Then I realized it was stupid and just left the Type R on there. I'll pull it off when I'm ready to paint it.

    Nice ! I love the screen, small but cool
    This reminds me of one guy who used his Palm PDA in his big server PC to control winamp.
    I just thought that it would be a nice idea for those who don't like all those big screens.
