    I have a laptop, kinda old, with Windows Xp Home. It has a 20gb HDD really nice software. Can I use it to begin my Carputer? I'm new to this Carputer, so far I love what I've been reading, I wanna make one myself w/o spending alot money. You think thats possible? Please let me know ASAP...!

    I am quite mad at two things:
    1) This dude used a clipboard! Both you and your pop get much props for this one.
    2) You are using a tower!!! I wonder where you hid it!

    In any case, excellent job!

    Good evening all. I was referred to this site by a member of another forum, as he had a carputer in his Acura with programming to control emergency warning lights. I have a similar application in mind, and am in the process of purchasing an '05 Trailblazer, and hope to get a sweet setup that will allow me to have a functioning stereo system, as well as the program to control warningblights. I look forward to any suggestions or advice you have for this!

    Thanks in advance!

    Looks good.

    Maybe i read over it, but why didnít you use the m4-ATX? you can easily program the power supply.

    The first real big challange was trying to figure out how to mount the touchscreen in the dash of the Trailblazer. At first I was going to use the GM Mount from www.humount.com, but I decided against it since it was made for a Xenarc, and not a Lilliput. (But they do have Lilliput mounts now, and the guy that runs that site is very very friendly, and helpful. I think anybody looking to mount a screen in a GM vehicle should give them a try first.)




    EDIT: Finally painted the clipboard black, and added a nice texture. Scroll down for more pictures

    Ok, so in doing my homework.. I did not see a "generic" GM mount on www.humount.com, is there one that would work? Maybe I'm just too tired and missed it.

    Also, what would you say/guess is the largest size screen that would fit in the factory radio slot? Thanks in advance!!
