    There's a bit more to it than just that........

    You may get lucky and have no issues though. Seems everytime I touch or change anything, I'm chasing down noise sources!

    Update on the project.

    Okay once the clear PC case was built, I had to wait for other components to arrive. So the project got delayed. Right now I am positing an update with all the components I have recently collected from the post office. I am still waiting for the power supply and bezel from Mp3car.com store. Its been more than two weeks now, hopefully they will get it to me in time to make the deadline i set myself.



    I was bored and had time to kill so i added a led in the case that changes colour.


    Slim Slot loading DVD burner from Liteon. Expensive at 120bux, but what are you going to do. This needs to go in the glove box, and it will use power from the M2-Atx. You can see I already tapped into the rails for 5v and 12v power for DVD and Screen.


    OS is installed and all software and drivers are downloaded for current setup, , only thing missing is a custom skin for rr. I am also still missing the hardware for bluetooth and radio functions due to the lack of funding for this project.



    Okay, now I have to make everything fit in my car. Audio, video and computer. So first step, meassure my trunk space, design and build a box out of MDF. Below the box is almost put together. Currently the construction of the box is far ahead than the picture taken.


    Finally picture of all the goodies that sonic electronix.com sent me perfectly on time and a price i wouldn't refuse. Great bargain guys check them out.

    hehe... believe it or not, that little tool box has nothing to do with this project. It is actually filled with art supplies; like colouring pencils and markers and paint.


    btw... YES, I am a grown man, no need to ask me my age and if I am still in high school....
