    2005 Vw Gti

    I have been working on the new carpc since before I even owned the car; I have had the car for about two and a half weeks now and I am almost ready to install the PC...

    the last few weeks I have been building the system on my desk so I should just be able to drop the wiring harness down under the carpet, bolt the case in the mounts and install the lcd...

    My system is:

    MII 10000 MOBO
    256 MB Kingston mem
    M1-ATX PSU
    80 GB Western Digital 2.5" HDD
    Panasonic Slot load CD/DVD
    7" 619GL-70NP Lilliput LCD

    Custom Plexi glass case and a Custom Dash piece.

    Custom Dash piece just to test the fit and color, looks better then i thought it would and the color hit the bullseye....

    What'd you do with that plexiglass thing that you said cost $20 to make

    It looks great thus far
    Are you putting the cd-rom ontop of the screen?

    I was thinking about putting the slot load one there but i would have to hack the radio cage and thats out of the question... i might put it in the glove box or just in the computer case...

    Ill upload more photos later today...

    Unfortunately (at least on my GTi), there isn't enough room depth wise to flush mount it. Not sure if this is common on all mk4's but at least in mine, the airbox is in the way. The only option is to mount it underneath and raise the screen up if you want it in the dash. I prefer my spot which is right in the glove box. The external enclosure fits nice and snug in a slot meant to house the manual.
