    2004 Mazda RX8 macMini Project

    The most difficult part of the whole project has been staying home long enough to put some good effort into it. The idea first hit me when I got off of Active Duty (Army) and decided the macMini was perfect for the car. I finally started the project in 2006 and had a working setup complete with macMini, Xenarc 1020TSV, and CarNetix PSU1900. Unfortunately the project was put on pause for a second deployment (California National Guard). I stripped everything out of the car to prevent theft and have returned to finally finish the project. This time around, I plan on taking pictures and posting them along the way.

    Thanks for visiting and I look forward to seeing this worklog make its way to the finished projects thread!

    Welcome Home; thanks for serving, and for serving again.

    And welcome aboard.
    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    I'm also about to start a carputer with a mac mini on my 8. What are you plans for the screen? I just purchased a OEM nav housing.
