    97 Chevy Truck in progress...

    I had it all installed for a while, but it was in a center consold between the passenger and driver seats. Looked kinda bad. So, I recently got a in-dash monitor and I'm in the process of getting it all setup. When I'm done, here is what it will be.

    Computer:
    DWW-7VGA
    VIA EPIA MII-12000
    Opus 90W PSU
    60GB 3.5" Hard Drive
    512MB DDR PC2700
    CDRW/DVD Combo Drive
    802.11G PCMCIA
    USB Bluetooth Adapter
    Motorola v710 Bluetooth Phone
    BlueLogger GPS
    Griffin Powermate
    1GB USB Thumbdrive (for easy file transfers)
    Hauppauge WinTV 401 TV/FM Tuner Card

    Stereo System:
    2x 12" Elemental Designes 13kv.2
    1200 Watt Audiobahn Amp for subs (A2150HCT)
    Components (undecided what to get yet)
    200W Sony Amp (Component power)
    Clarion 7 band Equalizer (EQS744)

    Here are some pictures of the thing so far:

    nice setup, what LCD is that, and what video imputs does it support... (I'm looking for one that tucks away like that, with VGA input). I assume its also a touchscreen.

    Conundrum

    Yea, it's a VGA Touchscreen. It's basicly a Xenarc in an in-dash housing. Digitalww has them, or had them, I'm not sure if he is getting any more.

    Awesome, anothe Chevy owner WOOT! Great install! A couple of stupid questions though, 1st what is the black thing on top of your hard drive? and 2nd I've searched but is the in dash a powered unit or do you manually pull it out?

    Thanks

    You have to manually pull the LCD out of the dash, there are no motorized units yet. The black thing was an adapter I sort of made. The LCD was powered by a cigarette lighter so I powered it with the PSU via that adapter. Now, I have it just hooked up to a live 12v all the time. More pictures coming soon.

    Thanks. It's an Olympus C-4000 Zoom (4MP). I got it about a week ago. Traded some guy the camera for an extra LCD monitor I had laying around the house. The pictures turned out pretty good. That was at meduim-low quality. High quality would have been too big. hehe. I'm finishing the truck today so, look for some more pictures soon. I'll probably make a new thread since it will be done.
