OMG, don't tell me you managed to stick it inside the dash!
This project started off when I saw the announcement of the VIA/EPIA mini-ITX motherboards. My first thought was "Oooh! Carputer!" No specific purpose other than the geek-factor and "can it be done?" I rationalized it with mp3 player, GPS, etc. but it was really just to see if it could be done.
I put about $600 into it, but already had the hard drive, bluetooth, and WiFi. My main consideration was to do the least amount of permanent or visible changes to the Explorer.
Pictures are at this gallery .
Yup... There was a lot of room... Depending on your definition of "lot".Originally Posted by Yuriy
Actually, even with the PW-70A power supply snapped onto the motherboard, there's about 3/8" behind the motherboard and 3/4" in front of the power supply.
I must say, that is very very cool. Good job!

That's very slick.
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!
You mean to tell me all that work hiding everything and you didn't stick the lcd in the dash? Still looks good tho. You defenitly gave me a few ideas with this one.
*blink* E-brake is on the left side, under the steering wheel. I didn't lose anything by adding it.Originally Posted by ppgt94
I really like how others have put the LCD in the dash, but I didn't want to lose my HU. I would have had to move it somewhere else. I may look at it again if I replace the HU with 1-DIN, which will then make room for a in-dash concealed mount.Originally Posted by snmnetwork
Yep thats true. You did want to keep the stock apearance. And You sure did acomplish your goal.
