    The support columns I used to attach the top to the bottom are just the middle parts of small turnbuckles I found at Home Depot. Price: about $1.20 dollars each.



    I ran out of time last night, but this weekend, I hope to have the sides put on, and hopefully build in a nice looking socket for the 12V DC to plug into.

    Ok! I made some progress this weekend... I finished up the carputer module itself. I actually redesigned how I created my plexi box using smaller turnbuckles I found at radio shack called "standoffs". I was able to shave off about an inch off of the width of my carputer.

    Here are some pics:

    This is how I have been powering my carupter prior to having it installed in my car:



    Next step is to install Streetdeck and get the XM module functioning properly!

    Well I got my monitor in, and I hooked it up. Everything works great!! I was able to hook the monitor up to the 12v Rail on the plug my HD uses (it uses the 5v rail). Also, after some fiddling, I was able to get into the technical menu on my screen and set up the auto power on. Next step is to hook up the XM module when my cable comes in the mail.

    More to come...

    Thanks Dad!

    Well, my XM cable came in the mail and I hooked it up and it worked first time! I've been playing around with the streetdeck demo, and XM worked flawlessly.

    Amplifier is in the mail comming to me. I might be able to start this comming weekend.

    More pictures to come......
