    1999 Buick Century Custom 4-Door

    I finally finished my secret project! I mounted this in my car using a 7Ē Xenarc computer monitor w/touch screen in a special GM mount into the dash. Itís powered by a Travla C134 case using an M1-ATX power supply and a VIA SP13000 motherboard with 512MB of DDR400 very low profile memory. The optical drive is a slot loading DVD (dual layer) burner and the 80GB SATA 5400 rpm notebook hard drive. Iíve got USB BT 2.0 dongle in the back running Widcommís 4.1 stack (read high-quality audio profile) and D-link USB 802.11G w/turbo mode (I have a D-link router) and get 108Mbps in my garage.

    I removed the stock ashtray and it's a perfect fit (7" wide). I haven't tried to move it further back yet until I get all the wires tucked in and away.

    Now, I just need to clean and vacuum my car! Good thing the McDonaldís wrappers arenít showing! J

    Did you notice the ashtray below? I removed it and inserted the Travla C134 case in the same slot. It fits really nice and is really held in by the pressure on the sides.

    Looks real nice - It came out perfectly -
    If I may suggest, I'm not sure of what's holding the case into place, but you might wanna make sure it's secure - maybe add some strong brackets?
    Also, your idea of pushing it further back into the dash shouldn't be taken lightly, so try to do what you can to make that happen so it sits a lil' more flush... The reason behind my suggestions? Security and Safety...
    Been a victim... Besides that - A++ setup!!

    Media Center 2005 runs quite well on the VIA SP13000. I also have 512mb of DDR400 memory, which I'm sure helps it out a lot!
