Now that school is out, I have found some time to work on the carpc project. I decided to get rid of mapmonkey, and start using iGuidance instead. This was prompted by mapmonkey telling me to go the wrong direction on a one way street (which I didn't do btw) . I know this is destinators fault, but I never trusted it since then. I also decided to try out the alpha of FU, and I simply love it. My current to-do list includes:
install power supply
finish carpeting box/cut hole for lights
install ground loop isolator to fix noise when computer is off
install more RAM
install backup camera
setup cell phone integration
What front end is that? Centrafuse is about to start charging and I am not sure if I want to buy it or not. That one looks like it matches the interior pretty well.
in clubrsx.com people refer to the colors in their abbreviated forms. for example, yours would be SSM or ASM if i'm not mistaken ssm for satin silver metallic. anyway, i'm about set to start building my own carputer and saw ur finished install. what's with the unfinished look of the bezel? are you still going to fine sand that thing down? it looks pretty bad...
I've been away for a while and I want to finish the carpc project fairly soon. Yes I know the bezel looks like ****, but I am way to lazy right now to take the whole thing out, resand/re-fill/re-paint it. I still don't have a power supply, lol so that is my next thing to sort out. I have 2 batteries in the laptop, so I only have to take it out about every 10 days to charge it. Still, it's really annoying. I installed an external power button up front, so I don't need to worry about a shutdown/startup controller. I really just want to get the power supply situation sorted out first before I do anything else. The laptop takes 19.5V input. Any ideas on a really cheap solution that wont introduce audio interference? I would buy an opus/carnetix, but I really don't want to spend the money if I don't need a shutdown/startup controller.
Yes, it's Freedom Ultimate with a modified color scheme.
After I finish the power supply, I want to finish carpeting the rest of the computer/amp box (lol, I never carpeted the top). After that, I might redo the bezel when I feel like it.
