    2004 G35 Coupe - custom mounts (lots of pics)

    My in car computer installation has completed
    The computer is responsible for navigation, MP3 music playback, video playbkac, web browsing, traffic reporting, gaming and anything else a computer is capable of

    The system utilizes a VIA Epia M10000 mainboard, 256MB PC2100, 40GB 2.5" 5400RPM HD, 802.11g PCI card with external magmount 7dbi antenna, Opus DC-DC 90W PSU
    Note that Im not using an inverter in this setup but rather a specialized in vehicle computer powersupply made by Opus Solutions. It regulates the DC battery voltage to a proper 12v and then also provides the startup and shutdown control for the computer (controlled upon ignition/acc wire)

    Here are pictures detailing the progress and final result


    To house the motherboard, I constructued a fiberglass mounting surface. This was my first time fiberglassing or doing anything similar to this so it isnt masterful but I am not a master.
    Masked off area where fiberglass is to be applied



    Result


    Motherboard mounting surface


    Fabric stretched

    Backseat taken out; you can see the cables run on the opposite side of the car (VGA, audio, USB)



    Car ripped apart - very sad looking. I had to drive the car around like this (minus the headunit) for 2 days. Got quite a few looks. People probably though I stole it


    Headunit/HVAC removed


    Work begins on integrating the DigitalWheelz mount

    Wow, amazing work. How does the screen open, does it fold out when you push it or something?

    god_of_cpu makes the screen mount like he said.....goto digitalwheelz.com you can watch a video of how to take the screen out. I saw god_of_cpu's in person.....looks and operates great, however it is not motorized.

    interesting you decided to go with such a small motherboard and cut back on performance (but at least these things are very low on power consumption), you had plent of room for something nicer......looks great though I like it a lot. I'd love to take the time to do something like that.
