    99 Grand caravan

    I been into this for a while now and decided to go for it. I have a 99 grand caravan that I am doing my install in. I am only 19 with a very very low budget, as a matter of fact I don't think i even have a budget but anyway I am using parts i had laying around and a few things off of ebay (thank god for ebay) to do this.

    Computer:

    Dinosaur asus desktop
    256mb ram (upgrading to 512mb but DIMM ram is expensive)
    Nvidia video card (I think its about 128mb kinda old I know but gets the job done)
    60 gig HD for windows and other programs
    200 gig HD for music and movies (Slave drive)
    5.1 Sound card but only using stereo thoe it just sounds cleaner then on bored audio
    DVD rom
    CD burner


    Audio:
    Pioneer head unit deh-p6300(the best in my opinion) witch was relocated to the cup holder/ash tray
    ip bus for my aux port
    All oem speakers (had infinity premium sound system stock so speakers were pretty decent)
    Sony xplod 1200 watt amp
    15 inch inch inerfire sub (dvc 1000w peak amp is bridge) in slot style ported box


    The real challenges are the the screen and the computer location.
    I wanted to go with a 7 inch screen and i got one but broke it
    so i seen someone go with a 15 inch flat panel monitor. so thats what i was going to go with. so i ordered another screen and it ended up being a 17 inch...WAY to big, but i already got so its gon have to work. seance it is so big, it covers the radio, ac controls, ac vents just everything in that center area, so I am working on a hange that would allow me to flip up when I need to accesses something under it

    Oh yea I am also using a 200 watt 400 watt peak inverter

    Pics coming soon......

    Just had all mine tinted inc windscreen, the windscreen is legal but front doors arent, but then again they're dark smoke rather than limo so I doubt i'll get much complaint from the police as you can still make me out through it when driving.

    But you can barely make out the screen through it when it's parked up which is good! Here (South East London) we pretty much get a breakin every day on our street at the moment!

    This is what it looks like now. That thing under the radio is the bottom of the keyboard it is in the house right now as i am working on the computer now but when it is done the keyboard will screw on to that



    Also the computer i am using...I don't know were it is going to go yet but for now it is going to go between the two front seats

    It's gonna be tricky moving those manual ac/heater controls isn't it? Also that looks like the 17" screen will exceed the width of the centre console?

    Well what I plain to do is mount some type of strips back in the radio din that will support the screen and also push it out about mabye 3 inches and then put some hinges on the back of the screen so i can flip it up when I need to get to the controls mabye some hinges for a cabinet or somthing
