    The 'stang is finally done! (For Now)

    So the goal here was to install a fully funtional computer into my mustang while also keeping it 100% easily reversible while not looking like i just stuck a screen on my dash. The only thing that was altered in the car was extending the radio bracket allowing the head unit to move back and the screen to fit flush with rest of the dash. I also fabricated a small hinge to allow the screen to pull down allowing access to the radio and also making it possible to remove the screen easily for when I'm parked at school (cincy isn't the safest area).

    So heres what I've got so far:
    MAC Mini w/ Bluetooth and Wireless
    7" Liliput Screen
    Carnetix Power Supply
    Run in through AUX IN on stock stereo

    GPS coming within the next 3 months

    whoa, factory stereo.. haven't seen one of those since I ripped mine out 4 years ago. I like your mounting system. May consider doing something like that on mine, rather than have to use a in-deck monitor.

    Hey thanks guys, sorry still no better overall shots but I found a couple for those interested in the hinge.

    The hinge I bought at lowes and is just an ordinary cabinet one that springs back to 90 degrees. I took the hinge apart and carefully welded a couple of small pieces to it. One to make sure the screen is at the right angle and the other to fit into the mounting slot on the back of the screen. The mounts on the same holes as the stereo bracket with a little widening. After thats on just replace the bezel and you have a nice flush/semi permanent mount.

    As for placement of the computer, the MAC Mini fits perfectly underneath the passenger seat.

    Hope to get some more pics soon.
