Wow, very clean! This one will be great.. ehh, why am I so poor?
Just wanted to let you all know that I have been busy updating my CarPC system....thought you might want to take a look. You can read all about it and see all the pictures here
It looks and works 10x better. I love having the DVD capability - I can also burn cd's and copy my new music to my computer without having to remove the hard drive tray. Everything runs so much smoother - I even strayed off and installed FrodoPlayer - I like it so far..but I didn't want to run it on my older, slow machine. I also cut my cold boot times about another 15 seconds and my shut down to hibernation time in half, as well as cut the resume from hibernation time in half.
One question - my touchscreen takes a second to initialize after resuming from hibernation with my new computer - is there anything I can do about this?

Rear of new case
Under seat with seat pulled all the way back - unit acutally has about 4-5" clearance between the front of it and the seat...amazing

Hope you enjoy!
I've been browsing this website for awhile now, as soon as I found out about the Lilliput monitor - I found this forum from a search on Yahoo! for the Lilliput....and boy am I glad that I did. I now have a fully functional, yet not completely finished CarPC. I have been wanting to do this for some time, but wasn't sure about a few things. I was able to find great information on this website. So thanks to everyone who contributes here! Well, here goes...
You can read all about my project and see more pictures at
Here's a sample of the pictures:

It's not everything that I was hoping for - but it works for now. I only had to purchase the Lilliput, so having this setup saved me from having to go outside my budget. I am saving up now to purchase a faster computer, hopefully a VIA unit. Being a broke college student really stinks, expecially with a 9 month old daughter to take care of. So, this project will most likely stay this way for a while now. Questions or comments are welcome.
Thanks for taking a look.
*Edit* Edited for a few typo's as well as to apologize to anyone who looked at this thread and saw the dreaded red x's. I forgot that I had turned on hotlink protection in my cPanel for my website and I had to go in and set mp3car.com on my allowed list. So, sorry guys...the pictures should work now.
Clean install of the LCD. Pretty much looks stock
Thanks for all the compliments! I worked really hard on getting it all inside the car and prepared, so it feels good to hear from people that think I did a worthy job. I do wish two things: I wish that the Lilliput had a flat front so that it could be mounted flush with the radio trim. I also wish that the opening in my radio trim was a tad smaller so that only the screen was visible from all angles. Oh, well, you know what they say, wish in one hand.....
Thanks again for all the kind words - it means a lot after spending so much time in my car
Is anyone else still having this problem? I know that I can see the pictures - and it seems that at least 3 others could, too. Please let me know if anyone else can't see the pictures. For you, Spaghetti, I'm not sure what's causing your problem - so I suggest clicking the link to my website and trying to see the pictures there? Thanks for letting me know - perhaps I still have a linking problem with my website. It is also possible that my host went down temporarily?Originally Posted by Spaghetti
There is no spoon.
I mean pics.
My next generation Front End is right on schedule.
It will be done sometime in the next generation.
I'm a lesbian too.
I am for hire!
how did you make the lilliput fit the double din?
edit-pics works for me
No pics. Nein, nada, rien, nuthin'.
