    Mate, fabulous worklog you've got here. It's coming together great!!

    I too was planning to use a different, larger motherboard and go for the boot mounted install, but after reading good things about the Intel I just had to pick one up.

    Thanks!!! :-) It's being fun.

    Yes the intel D201GLY has very good performance (I use RR, DigitalFX skin, Destinator 6, even Google Earth), and the price is fantastic.

    Intel have just released the version 2 of this board, see: http://www.intel.com/products/mother...GLY2/index.htm with a better CPU and SATA, and the price is still low. Check it out.

    My D201GLY is already in transit, but nevermind! The original will do everything I want just fine anyway.

    Thumbs up Trunk fabrication in progress... (continued)

    Hello,

    The trunk is almost ready:

    BEFORE (the plan):


    CURRENTLY (work in progress):


    The Sub-Woofer box, the frame for the Amplifier and CarPC are all installed.

    I just need to cut the holes in the carpet for the coolers and Distribution Box (fuses). The wood is already cut (see previous posts), just the carpet, that is quick.

    Also, the trunk "floor" (I don't know a better name) is being fabricated, and will get carpet too, and a piece that can be removed to access the spare tire.

    I hope to have all that done and CarPC installed back up to tuesday (3 days).

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Today I installed the CarPC in the right of the trunk and tested it. Everything is working fine, but the screen has some noise.

    I need to double check the cables, I am afraid that the amplifier is too close to the MoBo... The screen noise flows accordingly to the music.

    I will post pictures in the next few days.

    So, the last think is the trunk "floor", it's already cut just need carpet.

    Thanks

    Or maybe the noise also could be coming from the speaker's imam if the lcd wires are passing near them.

    The trunk is done, will take pictures to post.

    The noise in the screen was resolved, the VGA cable was passing together with the Lilliput 12v wire.

    I opened the case in the trunk to add the bluetooth usb, put all back in place. The noise in the image reappeared #$(*&#$... I will reopen and check the cables, again...

    Next weekend I will post pictures, I promise :-)

    I forgot to mention that I am now testing Centrafuse (have both RR and CF installed), because the Destinator6 POIs only work in CF so far.
