    1995 Acura Integra GS-R install

    Well. I got really anxious with the computer sitting in my basement, assembled, with everything but a touchscreen. So I went ahead and put it in my car.

    I'll post pictures when i get it installed properly. Right now it's just in there velcro'd to the carpet Since I don't have a touchscreen, the computer just boots into windows media player and starts playing music, and I use my Creativ PC remote to change songs and adjust volume, etc.

    It was a really simple install. I already had an amp going to my aftermarket speakers, with a power distribution block back there. So all I did was wire the m1-atx into the block and ground it. I stole the remote switch wire from the amp, then ran a jumper from the amp switch out jumper on the PSU to signal the amp to power on. Switched the audio cables from the head unit to the PC and boom. Ready to go

    I wont even have to touch the console panels and carpet until I get the touchscreen.

    System:

    VIA M10000 motherboard
    512 MB DDR ram
    M1-ATX PSU
    Sony VAIO dvd/CD-RW drive
    Seagate 160 GB 7200 rpm 3.5" hard drive

    edit: here is the car in question:

    I ran all the wires through the carpet, and I cleaned up the install. If you saw it before, you would be proud of me. The amp and computer and everything were strewn all over the car with wires everywhere. The box for the computer is temporary. I may make a little bench that covers the amp, dist. block and computer all, so it looks more flush. Or I may just make a box with a little glass top that you can see through, in case i want to make my computer glow or something?

    I had to cut a new floorboard, and transfer all the little foam pads over I cut the main part out with a rotary saw, then I had to use that little crappy saw, and it took for-freakin-ever. Until I got the hang of the saw at least.



    Then the wires ran up through the carpet.



    And then everything in, temporarily:



    The 7" Lilliput should be in tomorrow or the next day.

    And here's another shot of the temporary install. I know, I need a vacuuming and shampooing. That velcro is where the computer was held down until this point. It is coming out.

    So just showin what kind of monitor I'm usin. got this in today. I have to work every day except thursday and sunday this week, and thursday and any other time off I'll be with my girlfriend :-\ , so I don't know when I'll have time to mount that baby into the dash (the monitor, not my girlfriend ) Hopefully Sunday.

    So here it is temporarily mounted up on my dash. It will be going in where the head unit is now, so that it doesn't attract unwanted attention. And it doesn't unwantingly attract my attention when I'm on the freeway.

    Everything relative:

    If I can ever take one. I'm never home during the day. That's why my project is taking so long to get in. I have class monday - friday, then I work 5 days a week, and spend the other 2 days off with my girlfriend. I only get a good free day dedicated to my projects about once every 2 - 3 weeks
