    Post 2006 Accord Carputer

    I am finally finished getting the parts together and planing the install.
    Attached is the blueprint of my setup, take a look any feedback is appreciated.

    Part List:
    AMD Athlon XP 1600
    1 GB RAM
    100 GB HDD
    External Slim DVD+-RW
    7" Lilliput TS
    GPS BU-353 Reciever
    Wi-Fi
    BT
    52 in 1 USB Media Reader
    3 USB Hubs
    Custom Plexi Glass Computer Case
    SNHOND3 Audio Aux converter
    Mic
    2 x M2-ATX
    Modded XBOX w/wireless controllers

    a whole box of extention cables.

    Future Add-Ons:
    OBD II (Once everything is ready to go)
    Temperature Sensor (On the way)
    XM (Will order soon)
    TV/FM Tuner (cant decide on which one to get)
    Rearview Camera (maybe a front view also)
    Valentine 1 Radar and USB connection to Carputer, integrated
    probably more ....

    Bezel:
    I am hoping to not have to use the frame for LCD, so i wont have to cut the opening and closing mechanism for the storage compartment.

    Plans:
    I am planing on working on the screen bezel this weekend, if i can get to it.
    Planning to place the DVD/RW right above the LCD.
    Also plannin on running all the wires (VGA, Audio to HU, Mic, USB, Video Cables(XBOX, Camera), .....)

    Screen is going to be located in the lower storage compartment, computer in the trunk, Wifi, BT, GPS most likely behind rear seat's head rests.
    Xbox in the trunk.

    Software:
    One thing i have found is not many people list what software they are using, so i am going to change that:

    XP Pro SP2 (with many tweaks, to spead it up and changed logos)
    Road Runner with DigitalFX - thanks to JohnWPB for skin great work
    iGuidance for GPS, MS Streets & Trips for POI
    Winamp 2.95 for stability and speed
    I'll expand this list as i add more..

    Thanks to all who have helped me out in figuring out what i am suppose to be doing..

    You lost me on the Bezel. What are you planning? I am doing a laptop solution but not sure on the screen yet.

    I was planning to use the Honda Kit for installing the factory MP3 or Casette player, It looks like an easy job with that solution, but are you trying to keep the door?

    I am taking the Lilliput apart, the frame that i am referring to is the front plastic piece on the screen itself.
    Now if i take the screen itself, it takes less room in the compartment then having the plasting casing around the case.

    I'm trying to keep the door, to hide the screen, and it would still look stock.

    you might wanna take a look at 2003 Honda Accord work in progress

    Kind of a similar idea, but minimizing the cutting i have to do in the compartment.

    I do have the Metra kit, which is similar to the honda kit that you have mentioned, but that wont give me the door.
    If you decide to go with the Honda Kit, I would be interested in buying your Compartment, if it has the Metalic cover on it.

    I have the black interior, not metallic so maybe nasa would be the way to go. The good thing about the honda kit is that it has the double din opening and doesnt curve like the metra.

    Here's the picture you requested....
    Note: It does have some minor scratches -- kinda of hidden by the flash.
