Here's some day pics:
They aren't as bright in full sun than I thought, but they acheived the look I was going for.
Nirwana Project, the Android/Win 7 hybrid system!
1X Ainol Novo Flame Tab
3x Perixx Touchpads
3x 7 inch Screens
1X 7 inch motorized Screen
1x Win 7 PC
I got these from ebay, just search for "LED Strips" and you'll find them. They run about $7 with shipping for the most part. So, I got 4 for $24 (2 white, 2 yellow)
There's something the camera isn't capturing about these that you just have to see in person. I might see about using a different camera or a different setting on my camera to see if I can capture it, but they look a lot better than the pics above. (the day pic shows placement and everything, but doesn't show the brightness right...)
Here's some dusk pics, with the car in the shade, this might show the brightness a little better...
And by the way, the A4 parked next to me is my GF's Audi.
Next to be done:
Install the P2140 (as soon as it gets here) and the touchpanel, whenever that finally shows up. I guess there was a delay in customs or something that help up the shipment, and Dynamix doesn't have any in yet, so, I still have to wait.
I want to say thanks to all that have sent me all the nice comments on my install, and it's definitely nice to be noticed and acknowledged on the home page. It was some good hard work, and I'm glad it came out the way that it did. I hope it has inspired others to get their hands dirty and get started on their projects. As long as you take your time to plan it all out, and understand it will probably take longer than you expect to complete.
The best part though, is that there is this great community here for support with questions and pictures of what others have done.
Again, Thanks for the nice comments on my project.
I never thought a pt cruiser, could be so cool.
Nice work man.
Thanks, I thought the same thing when my Mom bought hers. To me it was a typical mom car. Then when I bought this, I saw the potential in it, and started making it my own. There's still a whole lot that I want to do with this, but it's a matter of having time and money, as well as proper equipment to do some of the things I want to do.
I got my P2140 in, and I hope to have it installed by the end of the week. I bought the wrong type of fuse/holder, so as soon as I get the right one, I'll start on installing it all.
I also need to get a dpdt switch so that I can use it as a valet switch.
Position 1 - PSU on, Remote Start On
Position 2 - Both off, valet position
Position 3 - PSU off, Remote Start On
I don't have the remote start yet, but I think I'll get that before the big snow starts to fall. I will probably just get a basic one, and instead of wiring the door lock/unlock to the doors (since it's already on the chrysler remote) I plan on wiring that to the PSU pulse wire, so I can start the computer remotely.
Any reason why you want to start the computer remotely?
Dont you just hook it up to acc, and when you fire the car, the car pc fires up as well? Otherwise if you are not careful, and remote start it, and forget about it, you could very well end up with a dead battery
Car ignition - resume from hibernate.
Ignition off, door opens - after 20 minutes hibernate.
48 hours of not powering on - computer will shut down safely.
All of this is programmable with the PSU. If I do use the pulse start, it will still do this but instead of triggering with the ignition, it will trigger with the remote.
Also, if I do use remote start, I want to start the computer when I want it, rather than when the engine is warming up. Another reason the remote is a good idea.
