    ford focus 2000 nearly 90% finished!! :-)

    I thought i would post a few piccys of my car,,,, as its nearly done. big thanks to "stevieg" and his site - www.stevieg.org/carpc/install/tours/ for the inspiration and ideas, and the the roadrunner team, and every one else in the scene, this forum has kept me up for hours, scouring over the info,,, its been a BIG help!!,,,, anyway,,, after many hours of hard work, sweat and vodka!!!!,,,, this is the stage i am at now.

    I have a 7" lilliput touchscreen upfront, i have modified the facia to take the screen, and moved the hazard light switch, and mounted a usb connector in the facia also.

    I am running a pentium3 933 with 512mb ram, 60gig 2.5" hd, 8x laptop dvd mounted in the facia under the screen. mx440 graphics, wintv for radio and television (thinking of upgrading to DAB?) wireless network card.

    Its in the car now,,, although i still have a bit of tidying up to do and few things still to rigup,,, Its magic.....!!!! lol

    dvd

    do you think the dvd would have looked better central to the screen?

    I was going to mount it there, but the space behind is very restricted.... It may be possible, and I was thinking of doing it, at the moment it is central above the heating controls.

    Have you ever had the Tatoo? It basically makes the Pepisi into an Alcoholic Cinnamon Pepsi.
