It always happened that you begin working on something and you donít think about some things till you are close to being done. This is the point in my install where I am kicking myself for not taking enough pictures. But there are some and they will be coming in the next couple of days/weeks.
What I am doing:
Custom build trunk which houses the computer, second battery, 2 diamond amps, 2 12í diamond subs, and still has room for my camping gear and lets me get to my spare tier. Because Car PC should never get in the way of safety.
The front has a custom inlay into the ashtray for a imon unit, with a knob for volume and a display for what song is playing. The head unit is being removed for a 7 inch touch screen, in a custom fabricated dash peace.
As a side part of this install I also went thought and laid down extra sound proofing, doors, trunk, and floors.
What I want my computer to do:
Naturally, I want it to play music, do GPS, cell phone though phone control, internet thought the cell phone. Nothing to special. Possibly after I get some work done on the engine have the computer display car stats.
I will be using this computer to feed GPS data for a independent study project that I am doing as a CS major at a university. Which should be interesting.
Where I am at today:
So I didnít start this work log till I was almost done, done. My car is currently in shambles as I just finished putting it back together from putting in sound proofing. The dash fabrication was finished yesterday when I put the final stray pain layer on the center counsel peace. Hoping to have a functional computer in my car by the end of this coming weekend. The computer has a custom box that mounts in the trunk at the place where a CD changer was supposed to mount. Thank you VW for giving me that nice bracket to mount to. My data wire has been run.
