    Word. I just saw this on gizmodo and one of the comments linked here. Why is this such a big deal?

    Nice work, DDumas! I'm thinking using the same components as you to make my own carputer. Your write-up has answered almost all my questions. I read in the Travla C134 FAQ (http://www.travla.com/FAQ/faq-134.html) that the low profile heat sink is required if you want to use the an optical drive. I'd like to know where you got your heat sink. Did it come with the motherboard, the case, or did you buy a barebones system (board and case)? Where did you buy them? Thanks in advance!

    Thank you! I ordered the parts seperately and built it from scratch. Something I wish not to do again. Trying to get an SATA drive in that box required special connectors. The extra heat sink came with the motherboard. Oh, and there's a trick to removing the old one. You can forget about good instructions. My advice, order it built by caseoutlet.com. They seem to have good connections with Travla.

    Buick mount?

    I LOVE the job you have done! I just wanted to know if you still have the setup, and how its worked for you over the last year?

    I have a 98 Century Custom which I had thought looked like it was perfect for a computer screen of some kind, and then I found your message and pics here on this site. I am very eager to consider setting aside parts and getting a similar setup for myself. I was just having trouble locating the mount, the link in your post must not work after a year Also, when you say "reasonably priced" did this setup cost a few hundred bucks, less than a thousand, etc? (if you don't mind me asking).

    Thanks again and great job!

    Wow, that is very clean! I have a 2001 impala and my dash looks just like that. I want to have a carputer in by this summer and your car will serve as the chief inspiration. you had to take the entire front off to place the screen in right? I mean from the end of the steering wheel to the end of the glove comparment assuming both are cars are that similar.

    The link no longer links to the "special mount". I went to the website but can't find what you are referring to. What exactly is the mount you used, becasue it may be what I am looking for.

    Thanks

    I think that's the one that Powder made and was selling a long time ago. i'm new here so i thought that he was selling them recently instead of in 2005, lol. is there any way to get a hold on one of these? It would make my first install 60% smoother!
