My project is a pc build on a plexiglass case, designed to be easily
removed and used at home connected to a simple 12v source.
I will soon switch cars, so, the goal was to keep the car modifications
to the minimum. That’s why the monitor is not built into the dashboard.
After some measurement and a lot of head scratching, what was a plain
50x50 piece of plexiglass begins to take shape.
This place looks like it was design to hold a Carputer. :P
To protect and avoid vibrations, I decided to make a holder in foam to
receive the Carputer.
I used some fabric for that OEM look
This is where all that ugly cables are hidden
The worst part is to install all the cables.
I used a tube to pass the
cables. Installed the USB hub in the fuse compartment where I will
connect the GPS, Touchscreen and a small extension to the dash for other
USB devices like pen drives, etc...
