10.1" Removable Tablet in Mazda MX6
So this is my first worklog even though its my second project. The original build was an 8"touch screen connected to an HP laptop in the trunk. I never quite got the first build to the level of completion that I would have liked and recently I began to realize that installing a tablet would be a great way to go. I ende up buying a 10.1" Asus Transformer tablet which I am very pleased with. About 4 days ago I began the install of the new tablet into the dash of my car. The biggest thing I wanted to make sure of with this build is that the tablet needed to be removable. I came up with a working plan and visted my local Home Depot where I procured the necessary aluminum and epoxy to begin the project. My plan was to create a hinged "pocket" of sorts that would open to allow the tablet to slide in and then close flush into the dash.
Currently I have completed the aluminum frame for the tablet and I'm working on fitting it into the dash. Because the tabet is so large it is going to take a lot of work to fit it in.
I'll post some pictures tomorrow when I get a chance to resize them.
