    ...im still here lol. Recovering from 'hopefully' the last correctional surgery. I have the carputer setup on a bench in the house and am playing around with different mounting options. LEDs are linked to the 12v power supply and are all working. I think Im going to mount all this first without the LEDs but make it upgrade friendly later on. So im learning towards the old dash setup with the original bezel i fabricated. I now have a few housemates that are motivating me to finish it so thats ok. Possible replacement of the mobo for sata, with a ssd and a 2tb WD green. Ive been offered a tiny dell duel core for free, I may integrate the 12v power into this and make it all in one boot mounted setup with a running vga/usb cable.

    Yeah Life im in Sydney, havent been on the AMC forums for a while either. Ill try and checkout your thread here after i post this.

    Here is a pic...

    xD... also i found out today that the touchscreen overlay ribbon cable is broken and its not getting off the input data it needs, and when i move it it cuts out completely. I will probably take it to a LCD/electrical place to get fixed.

    Hey all. Not sure if I mentioned it before but the touchscreen overlay is boinked. The ribbon cable had a crease in it. I tried to find a replacement but its hard to find in this size that will integrate with the rest of it. Also since my carputer has been superseded in so many ways by ready to go tablets ive decided to go this way. I will still experiment with the led backlit screen though. I have an idea for a universal remove for it.

    So i bought a Acer Iconia A501 the other day. I still want to fabricate into the dash. Ill be using the old bezel and modifying it to suit. I want it removable so I could take it out of the car if I needed. There are many aftermarket mounts I could utilise but I have yet to check out the official accessories and docks. Got the external 1tb usb 2.5" drive cranking with mp3s and 720p video playing with many apps to choice from.
