    PIII 1.0Ghz, 512mb ram, 8" lilliput non touch screen, dvd-rom under monitor, 100Gb ATA, 128mb gfx....

    screen bezel before DVD drive


    this is were the screen is to go


    dvd rom with mechano style frame


    dvd installed in car


    pc up and running as you can see im half way through finishing off the screen bezel


    my ghetto pc in a plastic tub in my boot running off an inverter connected thru a relay. I want to conceal it later on
