Just a few more pic's
Well Iíve been browsing this forum for a few weeks and joined today.
I was amazed at some of the recent installs and decided I must have a go .
Morex cubid 3688 mini-itx case
Epia CL10000 mini-itx motherboard
M1-ATX 90w Intelligent PSU 6-24v Input.
2.5Ē 20GB Laptop Hard Drive
CD-DVD Laptop Combo Drive
512 DDR 400 Memory
Xenarc 7Ē LCD Touch Screen Monitor
FM Modulator (Maplin)
USB TV Card
My Car computer is now up and running although Iím temporally using a Dash mounted Xenarc 7Ē touch screen until I can get hold of a motorised one with FM radio TV and its own 50w amp to replace the BMW Head Unit if they ever become available.
The 3688 case fits in place of the Cd changer in the boot with all the wiring tucked under the centre console and a fuse box mounted in the boot
I wanted to fit a USB Hub into the car so I could use a keyboard and mouse and also needed a place to put the FM Modulator switch so I fabricated a plastic plate to house these and made it fit the little storage compartment in the rear of the centre console along with 2 audio jacks in just in case I need them.
I managed to fit the modulator under the centre console by removing the gear knob and gator. thereís enough room there just.
The GPS mouse is magnetised so I just stick it outside near the boot lid and when I park up just pop it in the boot.
Finally I bought a 5v TV booster from maplin and modified it so the antenna part mounts were the towing ring goes in the rear bumper and the booster just sits in the boot.
I still need some speed camera software that will run on a PC and not a Hand Held.
Everything works fine even at speed, only snag is the screens mounted in a bad place so it catches the sun and makes it difficult to see sometimes, a new Lilliput motorised screen in place of the stock radio should overcome this I hope if they ever become available.
How did I do?

nice install. That is a interesting place for th aerial, but isn't that where the tow hitch is? what would you do if you needed the car towed?

Check Out My Install!!!
If I ever need a tow I would rather it be a forward one but if I need to use the rear one the antenna just pulls of and the ring fits with the wire in place.
The reason I put the antenna there is if I sell the car I can just buy a new blank then its back to stock, all the install was done with this in mind.
I thought it had taken forever to complete the install but hey thatís me.
nyce job can we get more pics of the car? and further away from the screen? sick car btw!
