    2008 Acura TSX (6speed manual) CarPC

    Hey Guys,

    Started Working on my new car .

    I had a 2006 Mazda6, which perished two weeks ago :-(
    I was able to retrieve most of my toys from it before she want to salvage.

    The last car i called mazdarati, keeping in the tradition i've decided to name this one Acurati.

    Carpc hardware:

    I will be changing the motherboard from my previous carpc
    I plan on getting the ASRock E350M1 AMD E-350 Dual-Core Mini-ITX.
    This car is smaller than the mazda so i need to downgrade in parts .lol

    I will be using the 30gb SSD and 500gb HDD.

    For GPS : the BU-353 and Garmin Mobile. ( I will be using google maps on my phone to supplement the soon to be outdated maps)

    Will be using a carpc skinned winamp for my music (nitrous audio)


    I may not be able to use the 3dConnexion in this install. i dont really have space, not willing to sacrifice a cup holder just yet .
    I may be able to get away with it since the touchscreen will be in arms length.


    This weekend i began working on the LCD housing . see pix below.
    I think i damaged the LCD in the progress, may have to purchase a new one :-(

    so without further ado, the pix...
