    VW Golf MKIV - Update with flush screen

    Hey guys and gals...

    heres the car firstly,




    been working on this for the last month and its finally installed

    its a 1.3GHz AMD Athlon, a 7" LinITX touchscreen, a 6 channel Infinity Amp, and Alpine components

    heres a few build photos followed by the finished project

    this is with old system ripped out and boot pulled apart, by this point all the cables are in the car (no pics of that boring process)



    my carpenter step-father helped me build the boot

















    here is the screen bezel fixed in place with epoxy resin (araldite)







    here is the screen bezel bulked out with P40 fibreglass filler





    no pics with the P38 filler in place (too busy!)

    and this is installed





    not perfect but it'll do me while i get another bezel and try again





    hope you enjoyed.



    any question, post away!

    nice install, what's up with that pci sound card though? why not go through the mobo sound and not have some huge card sticking off that can snap off?

    cheers guys, just holding it down for the UK side!

    mobo sound card doesn't work...believe me i'd love it cos its 6 channel as well

    i'm gonna sort something to hold it more securely but also you gotta realise there's nothing in there to move and snap it off

    How have you got your sound card 'mounted'. Those things can move around alot unless they are held in place.
