    T3 - Tundra 2003

    Well, I finally got it working and it is for the most part DONE!!
    THANKYOU JESUS!!

    First the truck:

    What is the T3? :
    The Tundra 2003 model was part of a advertising campaign associated with the movie Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines
    Only 200 made !!











    and the system install and some crappy photo shots




    Took out the radio



    Installed a cooling fan that blows in AC from the vents I cut below.



    The computer in the console



    closeup




    molded in screen Xenarc TSV 7"








    Hope you like it. It is my 3rd install

    I like the screen fab and pretty much everything.

    What are the specs on the computer? Looks like a via board.

    yeah it's the VIA Epia 1300 I believe. It's been so long since I bought the board.

    yeah your right. I have been brainstorming this while I drive and can't think of what Im going to do in the winter.

    I gues I could just plug the vent up durring the winter..

    Any ideas?

    I'm sure it won't be too much of a problem, since it's a car heater, not a heat gun or a hair dryer. May even be useful if the winters are really cold. The CPU should operate just fine, if I remember correctly VIA is rated to operate up to 70 degrees celsius.

    hmm yeah good idea...

    I think I could but this particular fan I had lying around sucks would not reverse simply reversing the wires.

    Its not pulling enough air into the console and it is getting VERY hot inside eventhough the ac is blowing cold air directly at the fan.

    I think I need a better fan....

    any fan/better cooling ideas?
