Ok. Car is back together, but the HD Radio isn't being found. Ugh. Not exactly sure what is wrong.
Also, I think I might have some heat issues. A couple of times I've been driving along and the computer locks up. Not bad if I'm listening to Sirius, but if I am listening to an MP3 it is unbearable. Bad thing is it won't shut down, so it is stuck like that for 2 hours.
Pictures of the back!
Hmm... I think there's one there. There was one there when I built it. I can hear it running when I turn on the machine. I'll have to take a look the next time I pull it out. That is a pain in the butt, let me tell you. That thing has NO room back there. I could use a shoehorn.
Ok. Just hard to see in pictures then. Tight space would also cut down on air flow and might cause a overheating problem.

Drove to Portland and back this weekend and didn't have any overheating (lockup) issues. That's a good thing.
Hey there, awesome install!! Did you have blk02si make that case? I'll be doing a very similar install in my Mustang and ordering the chassis from him. Would you happen to have any additional pictures of the install that you didn't post up?
Btw, a few co-workers of mine enjoy flipping my screen upside down, sideways etc. I thought they use alt+up/down/left/right. Maybe for future reference, a usb keyboard could solve the issue? I doubt it would be this simple though
Yeah. Blk02si's case worked really well. I have a few more pictures, but I used the best ones here.
I have no idea what your coworkers are doing to your machine. I use a wireless keyboard. Works perfectly.
I got to show a friend Donkey Kong on the computer so he could play while I drove. That, in itself, is worth the install.
N64 emulators! That would work PERFECT on a carPC!
Thanks for the quick reply. Do you remember the height/width of the dash opening? I'm curious how that matches up to my vehicle.
Yeah. I cut. I have pictures. They're on my phone. I'll up 'em later.
So, if you look at the picture in post three, I cut out everything in the top three inches or so. Looking at the pictures in #41 you can see that the motherboard overhangs on just the top part, so it fits in nicely. It extends about a half an inch past the back plastic. Luckily there was a bit more space behind it or else the VGA connector and the like wouldn't have fitted.
I also layed out the components in the case so that the montor cable would come out of the hole on the lower left side (Post #2 photo, again).
