    '07 Ridgeline Poor Man's Carputer

    Well...here's my first attempt at a carputer, I got the screen from here: http://autonode.com/xdpi107b.html, prior to getting it i did lots of searching for users that might have tried it, but i found nothing. But i must say i really recommend it, its sleek and simple and looks a lot better than the xenarc 700idt. It's also much cheaper. Right now its running off of my laptop, i'm piecing up some old parts for a computer, i will be putting it in a box using a power inverter, for now. Here's what I've done

    I thing it will be a godt idea to find a old pc for you instalation, better than the box you use
    Plan for project = 100%
    Part the project. = 100%
    Built...................= 99%
    Finish.................= 99%
    Install ...............= 99% -50%

    Actually i dont feel safe at all with the box, but i'm just using it as a temp plan just to get an idea how its gonna work and how i will fit it...I've seen others cut up plexiglass and create a custom case, i'm thinking of going that route...sure i could just buy a case, but i figure it would be more fun and feel more rewarding this way
