where is the puter itself?
My aging 89T is finally done. Didn't come out as clean as I had hoped, but I got tired of filling/sanding/priming/etc Plus, having to deal with the stupid rubber covered console piece just plain sucks (MatrixPC and cassio know what I'm talking about). Nothing matches the texture or color so I opted to just primer the whole thing and hit it with flat black, which surprisingly matches the rest of the interior pieces.

In the left-side storage panel in the hatch where the stock jack is normally stored. I made a custom case out of the M10K's cardboard box that it came in until I can make a custom plexi case. M1-ATX is attached to side of box w/ simple hotglue for ease of removal at a later time.Originally Posted by kickercivic1
Duly noted and soon to be rectifiedOriginally Posted by jcdillin
EDIT: First post now has pictures of car, car PC, and audio install.
Awesome.... im still optomistic about my project, but i have a few other things to perfect on before I go to it.... And I know what you mean by how much the rubber suck, but that came out awesome... i may try to mold something up to an older cracked center console I have. How difficult is it to remove that one now that its more rigid than the stock one?

Heya Drait, I've got an 89Turbo myself (So I actually recognize all the performance mods you've made too :wink.
I have to say that's an awesome bit of work with that center console piece. I've never seen a material like that other than in Mk3 Supra center consoles. I'd originally hoped to manage an install like yours but actually gave up before it started, thinking it was just impossible to do as good a job as you did. So my near term plan is to get one of the slide out/motorized gizmos (xenarc). And maybe at some point replace the entire thing but that'll require climate control work.
What display did you use? And what are its dimensions? Do you find that mounting position works well for visibility/use? Does shifter interfere much when it's in 1st/3rd/5th?
Hit me up on AIM as WilLyons2 if you want to talk Supras.
Actually, on the backside of the console piece there's a lot of reinforcing plastic pieces that I chopped out, so with the screen mounted, it kind of flexes right above the screen, below the ashtray hole. Exactly where it needs to flex in order to come out easily. I didn't actually plan that far ahead though, just happened to luck outOriginally Posted by cassio
It's the Lilliput/Newision 7" touchscreen. Not as bright as I would like during the day (and all the Lilli haters will say "you should've gotten a Xenarc/Gain then!") but it was cost-effective and it works relatively well. Visibility is about 10% in direct sunlight, but great at dusk/night. And the shifter is only in the way in 1st and 3rd. From the driver's POV at any rate. My kid says it's in the way in all the gears when he's trying to watch a showOriginally Posted by Lake
On my setup the shifter doesn't interfere with the driver POV cuz I have a "chop aka short shifter mod" shifter .Originally Posted by drait
What? you have kid in the back of the Supra? That's a torture for them.
