    When I got the car






    The Original Plan
    • Get a mATX motherboard and put that behind the dash instead of the stock radio.
    • Move climate control down.
    • Mount CD on the extreme top of were the climate control was.
    • Mold Xenarc case in the place of the climate control.
    • Use a touchpad for input into the cupholder.


    Changed plan






    • No chance for a 10x10 motherboard with PCI
    • Touchpad is useless.
    • Will try to gut the glovebox and mount the motherboard near the feet and use the space from the glovebox for more space.
    • Couldn't have done any of this w/o Ethan (my friend)


    Look after taking dash out




    How it looked afterwards

    Looks like it has potential, keep it up

    That's what I hate about doing quick work on my car, no turn signals when I need to run and get something.

    Progress: On hold while I pay off my new PowerBook :D
    Part List:
    VIA MII10000 - 512MB - 20Gig 2.5" - Rikaline 6010 - 7" Lilliput - CNX-P1260 - Alpine 4ch Amp - 4 Gauge wire and fused distrobution block.

    I was with my friend Ethan when we went to celebrate that we opened up my dash successfully and we're like where the **** did the turn signals go? And then we started laughing

    Oh yeh, the panasonic DVD won't fit were I wanted it. So we removed the cupholder and we're mounting in there vertically

    My friend actually told me to do that

    Thanks I'm planning to have some serious power... something like an Athlon XP-M, and Sound Blaster, and WiFi. Still have to crack open the glovebox... That's for today

    Thanks, but no, I still haven't got the money from the guy I wouldn't have repaired it anyways because I wouldn't then be able to do this during my break

    I am ready to start the carputer project in my 93 SC300 5 speed. As far as I can tell, the LinITX 7" screen is just about a perfect fit to replace the factory head unit.

    I plan on putting the entire PC in the trunk. I will be following this project closely ... and try and post pics of mine as well.

    Hey 0l33l,

    Great start on the project. I wish I could get my hands on an SC400 (Or 300 ). They're just way too expensive for me to keep gassed up. Damn Premium. Damn San DIego expensive gas prices.

    Peace,

    Rafster
