2004 Nissan Altima - another Laptop/Tablet mount
I dont really need a carputer in my car yet, and time and funds is an issue, but i really want GPS in my car, and the cheapest way to do it is my tablet mount. i wont be using it every day, so just use your imagination for now.
i doodled a little diagram on how i want to make it, but i have very little experience in this area and welcome any and all criticism that would help improve the build. holding the laptop against the foam alone looks like this mount is going to work, and the viewing angle should be good. i made one of those mount with cardboard paper just as a prototype to see the practicality of it, and i think it will work, but im worried about mounting it to the center console, have to find a good solid spot, and i haven't even taken part the console to see if it would work.
heres the bottom line, i havent brought any parts yet and i barely have any tools laying out other than the typical household tools. what is the cheapest tool that i can get to cut the aluminum? i dont mind it being ugly and sanding it down to make it smooth. will a typical saw work? and i dont have aux in on my car and there is NO ADAPTER that will work for my year and model alone for the oem stereo for some reason. my tablet speakers sucks, and i doubt ill be able to hear much. any ideas? power issues? whats the minimum inverter wattage i should be looking for?
any suggestions? tips? comments?
