    Hehehe busy with the computer itself, I only did one layer (almost two on some places) but I plan to give a boost on tomorrow so I can take it out of the car and continue outside ! It's really less pain than I imagined (first fiberglass project) but damn it dries fast !!! And last time I did this layer it smelled fiberglass for 2weeks inthe car lol so you'll need your air freshener

    These are the last pictures to show the install and how I fixed it to the upper part of the trunk. It's pretty heavy; it's been here for 2 weeks and didn't move a piece. And I can remove it if I need too, and there are no drill holes

    the last pic shows the "closed" casing. From a normal viewing angle, you can't notice there is something there ! You have to bend yourself a bit and because it's all black carpet, it blends nicely !

    Heat??

    New to the Carputer scene and I like the install. I see most people mounting them in the trunk. I live in Atlanta, Ga. and I'm concerned about the extreme heat in the trunk. Any reason not to be concerned?

    Well here I am in Quebec, Canada and the temperature is really, really changing all year long. It can be as cold as -40F in winter (-40C) and as hot as 100F in summer (38C). Right now we are around 25-30celsius (around 86F) and everything is fine. I'll add one or two more fans to insure a good airflow though. I couldn't put the computer under front seats because I'm afraid melted snow can go there in winter

    wow, I woulda never thought to put the carputer there

    are you going to just put the fans on the left and right? I was really worried about heat especially in the trunk, but I guess the four fans I have is enough... haven't had any problems and we've had pretty consistent 90F weather down here in FL.

    Yeah one extracting fan and one pushing fan

    Again, the good thing about this location is that I lose almost no space The bad thing is I had to bought longer cables for the monitor (usb+vga)... but it's already past now

    Oh and yes I'll attach the wires going out from the computer (red power wire that goes to my distribution block, ACC and ground wires, and my mouse that goes through the backseats that I used for testing )

    eum...

    The idea no I don't mind
    But the computer yes I mind !!

    I also bought recently a rearview cam that is working pretty nice but I don't know where to install it as my main concern is not to alter the car !
