01 Metro + laptop install = most getto carputer
What happens when you drive a Metro have no money and a old laptop?
I mounted this ugly laptop in the passenger seat using a couple of 2x6's,wire ties and velcro.
The unit is powered by a 400w power inverter with power cables running from the battery.
The complete rig was very cheap and suprisingly functional. The mount is stable and I can remove the laptop from the platform when needed as it currently velcroed to the wodden platform.
The biggest goal of the project was to not modify the car as in replacing panels or the factor AM/FM radio installed. Audio is achieved through a cheap FM transciever.
I'm using it for FrodoPlayer and Streets and Trips and occasionly war driving. Although I'm not exactly proud of my workmanship on this project but I'm putting it up as an example what can be done with spare parts and not spending a lot of money.
