Search for my screenname there and see how many threads I have asked questionsOriginally Posted by Aberration
Yeah those guys are very cool over there.
I will be submitting more pics, soon.
Update, the ideas have changed where to mount the computer bits. I had originally thought of putting them behind the screen plate much like katya4me has done, but that will not work. The screen mount itself would have stuck out too far, and with the Lilliput mount, the screen would be practically in my lap.
The new plan is to assemble the computer bits (PS, HD, mobo, USB breakout, and DVD) into the glovebox. But since Mazda's gloveboxes are craptastic (I love that word), they are not flat. I (meaning my dad) had to get creative.
Thanks to Negatize from the Mazda forums for selling me his glovebox for me to hack, my dad and I have almost finished assembling the bits into the box. Pics will follow later.
Ok, after a couple of nights (not consecutively) I have my glovebox done. Now just the monitor (easy) and the sound system (hard but I am having someone do it) left to do.
Here are pics of the glovebox. It turned out better than I though. Very nice and neat package that used only 4 screws into the glovebox walls to secure.
Note everything that is screwed in is actually sitting on O Rings. I used those as a sort of bump guard to protect from the jolts of the rough suspension. You can see them from some of the pics.
This is actually how I am powering my Lilliput. This wire is directly spliced into the M2-ATX power supply so the Lilli has 12V of clean power and is on when the carputer is on.
Looks good there. Now I'm jealous since mine is out thru autox season and I need to redo it.

Look for me on the track, cause that's where you'll find me.
New update I have the screen in!!
My dad has been invaluable. I think the finishing computer-illiterate carpenter is having fun doing what he knows how to do well and help with technology at the same time. Whatever the reason, he has done a fantastic job and I couldn't be more thrilled.
And now on with the pictures. If you have any questions, let me know.
Got the posi terminal on, 4 ga ran into ANL fuse holder, and through firewall to the distro block, then to the power on the PC, started up perfect for the first time
