    Astra MK4 install

    Just finished installing my touch screen and mini ITX car pc.

    I am more into the car side of things and my mate is the computer brain side of things.

    Thought I would post some pictures of it all installed

    looking good, excellent finish on the dash. what products did you use?

    can you operate the HU without the front flipping round? that would make it nice for when not using the radio.

    Screen was fibreglassed and fillered in then rubbed flat and sprayed at a bodyshop with plastic undercoat then normal paint as the top coat.

    My headunit is used as the amp so it needs to be on for that

    Want to do something similar in my Astra only I'd prefer to have the screen lower and leave the air conditioning vents above the screen. Is there any issue covering the air conditioning vents up? Have u blocked air from coming out or do you let it blow behind the screen??? I imagine if you let it blow over the screen you would have condensation issues on the circuit board.

    The centre vents only blow cold air so I wasnt too bothered about loosing them. You can also use the side vents and direct them at you if you feel the need but so far I havnt needed too.

    To block the vent I used some dense foam that I cut to shape and pushed into the hole so it was a tight fit.

    Because the PC is so small and runs nice and cool I mounted it inside a first aid box and mounted it in the standard position.

    I still need to tidy the wires so you cant see them as easy but this is what its like.
