Hello all. I'm going to do a carputer for my Vibe. Always wanted one so figured now is the best time to do it. My goal is to have it small enough to fit into the glove box as I don't want to do much modification to the dash and all. I wanna keep it as stock as I can, yet still have a carputer. My budget isn't very much at all, and I'll probably end up having to buy it over a couple months, but here goes. This is my first project for my car so bear with me. If you have any advice, tips, suggestions for cost and all, please post them.
I'm looking at these parts for the main computer:
Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136197 - Really didn't want to spend that much on it, got any better, cheaper suggestions? I could just throw in a old 750gb from my desktop until next month or something.
Now, this is the part I'll need help with. How much are some good, but cheap screens for this? Do I need a certain kind of headunit or what? My stock radio is double din, no other inputs on it other than the stock ones. Will the car not start if I remove it or what? Also, what do I need to get the audio from the computer to the car speakers?
I'll post pictures of the car tomorrow morning. Also, my max budget that I can spend would be around $200 for this month. But I don't need nothing overly powerful as I don't drive the car to much and I would like to get it as functional as I can this month as I hate to wait.
