    Post 1995 Mazda Protege LX

    THIS PROJECT IS NOW DEAD, I'VE MOVED ON TO A NEW CAR

    1995 Mazda Protege.

    Computer:
    Abit Motherboard
    Semperon 2600 CPU
    512 MB DDR RAM
    GeForce FX 5200 Video Card

    Sound System
    SoundBlaster Audigy NX
    FM Modulator(until i replace head unit)
    Pioneer SuperTuner III

    Other Stuff
    Earthmate GPS w/ streets atlas (sucks @$$) will replace eventually w/somethng else
    Mini-Keyboard(kept under passenger seat)

    The Car


    The Dash


    The Keyboard(w/lights from autozone)


    Inverter Switch


    Works in Progress
    I Still need to find a better place to mount the display, i'd like it too look OEM when i am done. Need to get a DC-DC Powersupply w/shutdown controler. Replace the GPS with a better one, that supports external antenna(a dual wifi/gps antena would be nice). Also need to rerun all the wires so they are much much neater, and out of sight

    last note, i need to get a spellchecker for this form.

    odds and ends

    I managed to get rid of hum and alt. noise by upgrading the car wireing

    i'm getting ready to install subs, today i installed a 2AWG amp kit, replacing the 8AWG that was running to the trunk. Installed a distro block, 1- 2AWG in - 4 8 AWG out.

    hopefully Next weekend i'll be installing 2 - 12" PowerAcustic FUBAR speakers and a 2400 Watt Class D Amp. Will also be building a boot for the carputer.

    installtion pics comming soon.

    Insurance didn't cover your accident? Most do, it falls under "act of God" or something like that. It doesn't count against you and you don't have to pay a deductible, you just have to make sure to tell them that the deer hit you, you didn't run into it.

    Look for me on the track, cause that's where you'll find me.
