    2002 Accord EX

    Here are some pics and descriptions of my carputer. I am about 95% finished with this project. The only thing I need to do is put an aluminum faceplate on the front of the case. The stock radio is behind the LCD(flipped 90 degrees) and the computer is running into the tape deck. My volume control is on my steering wheel and on the computer screen. I took the buttons off the bottom of the touch screen for a cleaner look.

    Great job man! The LCD fab job is awesome. It beats me though why you would want a dvd burner in the car.

    Most dvd burners nowadays are just $40-$80, same price as a normal CD/DVD drive.

    Awesome job on the screen and the PC install. Very clean.

    very nice, from one 6th gen accord owner to another. Any heat issues, i am thinking of moving my carputer to the center console but I am nervous about heat. Are u adding holes on the side, fans, etc.

    fans

    I added one 3" fan to the front of the console. It is not in the picture because the picture was taken weeks ago. I plan to put 2 fans in back of the console and have them facing out and then changing the front fan to facing in. The 3" fan really does a great job, I don't know if it's even necessary to put in anymore. I drove for about a week in a half with no fan and it got really hot but I never had any issues. Now that the fan is in it has cooled down tremendously. If I drive for hours it won't get hot at all.

    Um, has your SRS light lit up yet? I'm asking cause I put my XM tuner in the center console and the SRS light came on shortly afterward. The mechanic (honda master tech) says that the interference screws with the SRS computer. I'm not sure I beleive him, but I'd be interested in what if anything happens in yours.
