    2003 VW GTI 20th AE Work Log

    here is a pic of the car = )





    started this project a few days ago, and this shows what i have done so far, in order

    next week, ill get my hardware, and install it, ill add more pics then.

    the computer setup i have coming, is

    Albatron KI51PV-754
    AMD Athlon 64 3200
    wd scorpio 60g
    dvd rw
    ram 512
    m2-atx

    i alredy have the xenarc screen as u can see from the pics
    i also alredy have some other components, wifi esc.

    im still not sure how exactly im going to do the sound, the monsoon system might have an isue with volume, id like to atealst make it loud and clear.


    after i cut the screen, and was positioning for fitment so i can epoxy it in

    after epoxying it in, and did some bondo work

    i got my psu yesterday, but i forgot to get a p4 to p4 connector, and a 20 to 24 pin cable, so ill have to wait till they come to be able to finish.

    i did finish the audio though, i followed the instructions to connect the monsoon, though i dont know if i need a ground loop isolator, with the laptop hooked up i didnt have a problem, though with the psu, it might be differant.

    ill have to see when i get the 2 missing part to continue.

    for those of you who have the monsoon and are thinking of conneting a car pc to it dispite some of the things i have read the sound is fairly good, although it could be louder, but its loud enough. i made my bod with 6 inputs, for a 5.1 system, but i disconnected the center channel, well because it was causing interfearance with the front channels, making them quieter. so im just useing the 4 inputs for now, and the all connect together, with a 5v voltage regualtor on the neg side of the left channel, its bleeding though to the right channel too, but only becase of the damn spliter, and the common ground in the 1/8 connectors. i hope ill be able to get some good grounds, and wont have any interfearance when the computer is on.

    i was able to get one of the parts today, and did most of the instalation, id finish it, but id have to take it apart to install the last missing part, a 20 to 24 pin wire.

    anyways here are some pics of the progress

    the dash 1/2 taken apart, so i can run wires, and connect power = )

    where im sticking the USB wireless card

    everything but the glove box is install, so i can install critical part tomarrow, and finish up in 10 min = )
