2000 MX5/Miata EEEPC CarPC (Photos)
Note: This will be more of a reminder blog for me while I build this thing, and a how to/how don't showing the progress as I build this thing. There are heaps of pics of final installs here, but not enough pics of progress with the little things, so I hope this will help people with ideas on how to build their own micro-notebook installation, and general car pc install.
Comments and any assistance are very welcome. Don't mind my mindless brain babble :)
