Update: Fabricating dash AGAIN!
Update: Decided to fab my lcd dash install, check it out: http://www.aescarpc.com/dashfab/
I finished my install about 3 weeks ago, here are the pics:
Enjoy and comment please on any improvements i can make, perhaps to the surrounding of the screen (there's an ugly gap at the top part a bit).
But whats with the wheels?
What kind of case is that?? A Large Attache'?
Motherboard: Epox MATX
Storage: 120gb 3.5"
Optical: Slim Slot cdrw/dvd
Audio: SB Audigy 2
GPS: BU-353 & iGuidance 4
OS: Win FLP (Fundamentals)
Frontend: Roadrunner (DFX 3 & 4)
nitro: Yeah, I guess it is a large attache case? I told my dad I wanted to use plexiglass and how to cut it and he said it was a pain, not as easy as glass cutting which he had showed me a while back. Instead he brought this case from the garage which had his old camera in it. I tore into that instead. It was a really snug fit. I was hoping the PC would be smaller but even with a tight squeeze it's still a pretty huge package.
hellcat: yeah it came with those wheels when i bought it about a month or so ago. I dont mind it, it might keep people away from looking into my car and stealing my stuff :P
matrix: Ya thanks. i covered the back of the face with velcro and it sticks nicely to any location around there given the wire is long enough. (unfortunately i used shorter wire than I should have when I was wiring the faceplace out of behind the screen where the actual HU is)
Cool another miata carpc. i love your skin, what is the frontend. I still did put here my install, but it will be soon. if you want you can look here, but soon ill post my project.
chomo: I cant even remember what's in here but lets see....:
M2-ATX Power Supply
AMD Sempron 3300+ w/ mATX Biostar nForce2 Motherboard
512 MB RAM
250 GB Western Digital 5400 HDD
USB Sound Card
Holux GPS Receiver (mounted on rear deck, under carpeting.. stealth)
18 dollar PCI Mimo Wifi receiver with 3 prong bulky external antenna (great deal from frys)
Lots of USB Extension and VGA extension wires and just extension power wires...
Ebay 7" Touchscreen (Lilliput hardware) which I had to repair numerous times... ugh what a pain that was
Thats about it I Think
