      first the 7" indash screen. 2 rca inputs. I figured since I've never put of pictures here are some.
      Also the funny thing is I am getting alot better sound quality and more BASS with the computer. Weird huh.
      Anyway the computer is an EPIA 800 mhz, 256 megs of ram, 40 gig 2.5" hard drive, 4x slim slot dvd-rom, Rand McNally GPS antenna, 150 watt dc-dc power supply and a relay to keep things under wraps.


      usb playstation type game controller

      the remote switch, its really just a momentary switch for now, i'll mount somethign better later.

      gps antenna, don't mind the dirty window

      computer in trunk



      touch screen.

      i have the same moniter, and will be doing something like that in the future... when i get my lazy ass up and start peicing stuff together

      nice work! did you install the touchscreen backing (for the moniter) yourself?

      usb playstation type game controller

      Everytime i see a playstation remote controll for switches, it reminds me of my friend Gene who died December 13th 2002... it reminds me of him because he used an original playstation controller and hooked his foglight switches, neon kit all up to it. it was done so clean too... first person ive ever seen do it, then he did it for my car... That was like 2 or 3 years ago... he had so many cool designs like that in his car... man...

      sorry didnt mean to ramble on, just get caught in the moment sometimes you know!!

      ha yeah I do, i just download the wallpaper off some anime wallpaper site. for those who asked..the comp is basically
      EPIA C3 800 -mobo
      256 memory
      40 gig 4200 rpm hitachti Travelstar drive
      4x Toshiba slimslot dvd rom(free I had it off a notebook)
      150 Opus dc-dc power supply (special power supply for automotive hookups)
      various adapers, extension cables, relay, switches

      it cost me basically $600 to make the box part itself.
      And yeah I will try to make it that much cleaner, but for now its pretty sweet.
