2000 VW Passat GLX V6 2.8 CarPC Project
Hi. I've been reading this forum for over 6 month and after several dreams about my Car PC i got idea how to do it.
I have VW Passat, i found few instalations which i would make as source for mine. Yesterday my car looked like this:
At this time i got:
Pentium II 350MHz (i wanted to use Pentium III 600 but i had problem with powering it)
Motherboard - i think that is Gigabyte with Slot 1
Memory - 256 MB SDRAM will be enoght
HDD - now i got 20GB for testing, i will install something about 100GB
PSU - M2ATX... yeah... thats what i like. 160W is enought for powering this system.... it's consumes apprx. 30-40W so its not bad.
Optical Drive - now i have none... but im thinking about Pioneer DVD slot load.
Screen - Liliput 7" i think that it was the best choice.
Audio - Sound Blaster MP3+ USB .... i use to had this hooked up to my laptop (zero noises). Im going to connect it to Monsoon amp and also to my Sony Xplod 1200W amp.
now... how my setup looks on my desk....
.... first case... just for testing purposes....
...and today i decided to install some cables i finally tried to start it up in my
tommorow i will take care of sound, because i have none at all.... i also need to make a power rail to PSU because today i connected to jump starter.
Awesome install, i got same car and planning on doing same thing.
First, awesome install, very ingenious mounting drive on pci card. What was entailed in removing the dash radio Trim so you could mount the Lilliput in their? Is it a flush mounted to the trim? What did you use for a firm or permanent mount of it there, glue? screws? I have heard just awful things about reflection with the Lilli's so i was most likely going to be doing a xenarc 700tsv and mount it lil deep back in the dash, mabye, 1 1/2 inches or something along those lines as to help keep sun off the screen.
Awesome job dude
