    Subaru Impreza Wagon Carputer mk II

    I previously had cut open my dash, stashed the via board and all the other peripherals in there, and mounted my screen on top:









    This setup served me well for the past 3 or so years, however I recently moved to a slightly more urban enviroment and decided i want a stealthier install. In wanted to move the screen up where the cubby was (with gps in it, 2nd picture above) and make a custom faceplate where the gps and other peripherals could be intergrated. This is my work so far, if you want to read in more detail visit my flickr set for the project.













    Hopefully in the next 2-3 weeks i'll complete it, and hopefully document the rest of the process.

    As a new member an the owner of a MY2000 Subaru Wagon I'll be glued to this thread for a while! Quick question, what size of screen (model?) did you manage to fit inside the upper dash compartment?

    Thanks and good luck with the project!

    i dont wanna rag on you, 'cause that install is lookin pretty good

    but by stealth install, did you mean "stealth-but-the-gps-is-still-visible" install?

    :P

    Its a lilliput 7 inch, hacked into bits

    I've just started with learning to do some molding to make it actually look a (bit) more stock . . . I added a usb hub on the center console, needs some more sanding but works for now:



    the electrical tape around the screen will be removed, and hopefully i can throw together some sides for it which still fit in the cubby


    dirtiest screen evar


    the whole system so far


    another showing the usb hub


    Thanks all for the comments!

    i guess by stealth i meant more "make it look like it would be a ***** to steal" . . . a dash mounted small screen gps isn't as much of a breakin attractor as a 7inch screen, and i like the idea of it being accessible even if the computers off . . . i am going to make it molded into the dash today and spray paint that whole panel, should have some more pics up soon
