    95 Ram...12" Indash Touchscreen!

    Hello all,

    This is my first attempt at a carputer install. Hopefully it will end up as good as I hpoe it will.

    So I guess I'll take you through what i've done so far.

    Ok here is what I have to work with...This is where the 12 incher is going.


    I found a dash bezel at the junkers for 5 bucks and it was better than mine so I cut up the original one (the original one was all messed up by the guy who helped himself to my old stereo)


    Then I made this for the screen to go into.

    There is still ALOT more work to do with the screen mount but that is all I have done for now.

    On to the computer.

    So I needed a case...something stong, cheap ,and look like it belongs in the cab of my truck. Heres what I used.


    An hour or two of dremel work and i got all the partitions removed and cut the hole for the I/O Sheild


    The I/O sheild fit good but some hot gule and it wasn't going anywhere.

    Here are some of the other parts of the system

    Keyboard.


    Gps


    and I have a magnetic wifi anttena that goes on the roof.

    ok Back to the computer. Here is the case with the motherboard psu and hard drive in it.

    I cut a little hole by the handle and added a switch to turn it on
    I also put a LED there because when you turn a computer on a light should go on, that is just the way it is.

    So now that I had it all together I had to test it out.
    Here is my lab/shop/christmas tree storage.


    While testing in the clean room something bizzare happend and my hard drive caught on fire. Good thing it was an old 40 giger


    So I replaced it. First I replaced it with a 10 gig 2.5 inch hdd


    But I didn't like that so I put in a counterfit seagate drive I got stuck with off of Ebay. Oh well it's 200 gigs and it works.

    I'm liking it so far! Especially the case, since I too used a tool case. Mine was from a Panasonic drill, which just happened to be the same size as my mobo, with less than 1/4" clearance on all sides.
    {Xenarc 700TSV} {Celeron M 1.3 ghz} {ASUS mATX mobo w/CT479} {MX440 128mb AGP} {1x512mb RAM} {3.5" Seagate 40gb (rated at 350 G's)} {M1-ATX}

    Thanks guys. I actually put a lot of thought into the case and the drill case was perfect. It's big enough , It's strong , It's portable, and I have a few of them with no drills to put in them.
