Well i know it is not 100% complete or perfect w/ the cracks and paint and such, but with that being said,, dayum! It's sick, I can't wait until this type of install gets to the aftermarket, oem market for those of us without the skill/patience/time to do ourselves.

I think it looks pretty damn good in the pics too and look foward to further updates!

than and side projects, like photo shoots... now im gonna be another 2-3 days editing pictures and uploading to wesites... dam, how i found the time in a month to do this, i dont know... but by next month HOPEFULLY it will ALL BE DONE!!!, ok next deadline, for a 100% compleated carputer it.....




wait for it.....




drum roll........

Interesting! I like Portabuddys more since it's a more "custom" setup but nice nonetheless

what are you guys using for a power supply? I would think that if you have it running on 12volt rather than 110 you might have problems from the AC from the alternator. maybe a second battery to make to signal more constant.

your normal computers use a 110v PS which breaks down to 12v, 5v, and 3.3vdc. In a car you already have a 12v dc source,(your battery/charging system) so you use whats called a dc to dc powersupply. these normally incorporate a startup/shutdown controller as part of the PS so your ignition switch can control turning on and off the pc. hope that answers your question. not to mention your more then likely only going to pull a max of 20amps which is only slightly more power being drawn then a head unit
