    MoboMan's 97 chev astro cargo van

    I recently started on my project. I have RAAMAtt that covers the floor and am starting to do the sides. I have filled the back doors, side door, and most of the holes in the van with great stuff expanding foam.

    Other cars:

    2002 Olds Intrigue - Bose sound system, not getting replaced
    2007 Chev Express - it has a Pioneer Avic-z2

    To Do List:
    Finish covering inside with sound matt
    Install a computer monitor in custom console
    Make permanent boxes to house rear speakers nicely
    Install a deep cycle batter and isolator



    Carputer specs: Intel D101GLY, 1GB RAM, Garmin USB 18 GPS, Samsung 80GB 2.5" PATA HDD, Samsung 5.25" DVD Burner, M2-ATX, WinXP Pro, Road Runner + Digital FX2

    Current Stereo: JBL GTO301.1 II | Alpine MRP-F550 | MTX 12" thunder T5512-44 sub in a MTX BS112S enclosure | Alpine SPR-69C | Alpine SPR-17S | Legacy 1.6 Farad Cap

    I'm using my carputer 100%, but I still need to make it easier to use.

    Tint was installed by Eclipse window tinting in Cincy, OH. My new camera came today, a Olympus stylus 820.

    Thanks,
    I've put a lot of work into my carputer this weekend. I am still looking into a monitor. I do not know if I want to use a around 17-19" flatscreen in a center console or if I want to go in dash touch screen.

    I have my carpc on the bench right now. I'm working on setting up the kx project right now.

    I had my carpc in my car last night. It consumes about 2.5amps @12v. I was testing the gps reception and the sound blaster's ability to control my amps.

    Here is my carputer, it is now built in the case I am going to use. The power wire coming out is for my monitor, monitor is a 17" Neovo. It runs on 12v. The power in is a normal computer power plug.

    Assembled, ready to go.



    Back of case:


    Amps@12v, idle:

    Inside the case:





    I had to make a place to put the power supply. What better spot than mounted directly above mobo?

    2 holes needed to be drilled and tapped to hold 2 standoffs for the m2:

    So what do you think so far? There is still a lot of stuff that needs doing such as building my center console and rear speaker boxes.

    Today I added more deadening and put in a new piece of plywood.

    Now I need to figure out where I am going to put everything now that I have everything ready, I need a layout.

    Here is what it looks like inside now. (the pioneers belong in my Honda 600 as well as the JVC Head Unit, I am borrowing them because the Honda does not run yet.)
