    1994 Camaro 3.4L "Red Alert" CarPC

    Well, it's about 95% finished. I'm just waiting for the Opus 150w powersupply to come, should be here Monday. Right now I'm just using some cheap invertor to power a regular ATX power supply.

    Some specs:
    Via Epia ME6000 Motherboard 600mhz
    256MB Memory
    20gb HDD
    Lilliput 7" Touchscreen
    USB Wireless Adapter
    Earthmate GPS Mouse
    iGuidance
    Road Runner
    Winamp

    The installed pics:

    I just like textured flat black better than shiny and smooth.

    Thanks, the interior is painted gloss black, but I plan to get rid of the texture throughout the interior as I personally can't stand the texture.

    Constructive criticism is welcome too, as this was obviously my first install so I just tried what I could.

    Personally, I think u had the right idea, but it needs to be cleaned up...
    It just doesn't look right, sorry... The monitor doesn't seem to be blending in too well with everything else... and you can see parts where it's cut and chopped... and parts where the paint job is not matching.. etc..
    Still needs work...

    Thanks for the notes, I'll definitely try tackling some of those. The chopped part, I'm guessing you're talking about the panel to the left of the bezel where it's a ragged edge? That was from a previous 10.5" touchscreen bezel, had to dremel the edge to get it fit, but I do plan to replace that panel and then it'll line up correctly. I think most of the paint mismatching and what not is more just from the flash than anything, as in person it matches pretty good.

    Does the screen position bother you?

    I like the 3gen background
