    2001 peugeot 106 in Dash [Laptop]

    I've made mij Laptop fit in to mij glove compartment. i modified mij glove compartment so it the opening angle is twice that much.

    I've disconected the laptop screen from the motherboard casing and put the screen on the back of the laptop. So the keyboard of the laptop is now on the back (as in the images).

    The only bad thins is indeed the brightness, does someone knows a hack or something for this?

    I'll be using my carputer for navigation, as wel as some document editing, so typing is a must for me, but you're right, if you only want the multimedia aspect it doesn't matter if you only have limited typing abilities.

    Nice idea thought to disassemble a laptop for media purposes, might use it in my living room :-)

    I still can use my mouse, so a navigations software like with a touchscreen can also be used with a mouse.

    There is allways XP OnScreen keybord (or similar programs), so mouse can do this job too. So computer can have any use.

    Personaly I use touch screen, but this is acceptable solution too.

    Oraia douleia.
