    Smile 92 Eagle Summit carputer, it begins.........

    This is the car, I now have a working Acer Power 2000 slimline notebook AKA core 2 duo with a gig of ram to power the system with a DC - DC PSU wired into my DEH860MP head unit for audio processing. With the onboard HD sound pumped into a premier deck the sound quality should be sweeeeet! I will soon incorporate a 5.1 signal processor to gimme true surround sound. The dash has 2 single din openings which will hold the head unit below and the fold out VGA screen above. Since budget is a bit of a factor and I couldn't fabricate my way out of a wet paper bag, this will have to do. Other goodies will be Wifi, GPS, dual zone monitor with wireless headphones etc. I know this car is small and crappy but it is my first official build and the car was free so it is a good practice project and a great test bed for other freaky devices. I will post more pics as time goes on.

    Well the Eagle Summit is based on the Mitsubishi Mirage. So I don't think that is cr@ppy. I hear you on the fold out screen. When I bought my truck, I went with a flip out screen, but it didn't match my truck. I bought a EBY701 and payed someone to redo my bezel. I think it ran me $180 for the mod. Looks OEM now. On the Mirage/Summit though, a flip out will look good. Take pictures of the interior.

    Here is some component pics for now, the Acer cpu and my Premier head unit. More to follow!

    I will get some cabin shots later today after I clean it a little....

    One other thought I had for an 8 inch screen was to make an overhead console and make the screen pull down or fold back up at an angle in a curve type of idea. It would block the rear view mirrow when down but as soon as I put it up it would be out of the way. I would have to fabricate the mechanism to make it swing down or back up and flat. That may be the 2.0 upgrades in the future....
