page will contain nothing but pictures with captions and some videos of
the carputer in action. As of September 2010 it's far from
but it's been operational this season. (Other than the
the original D945GCLF motherboard in July which was replaced with an
AT3GC-I and all software, including the September release of Ride
Runner, was re-installed on the drive after wiping it.)
Luckily, the stereo works without the carputer!
Videos require the divx coded pack from divx.com.
The overhead console is far from finished, but it does what it's
to Right Faceplate Pictures: Normal, Open, Removed. The radar
detector is accessed from the opening just above the faceplate.
center console area with the Camaro radio bezel which was modified to
hold the slot-load BD-R drive and the 8" touchscreen, and the ash tray
which was modified to hold the multi-format card reader.
the monitor is an 80W pico-psu, a back-up battery, and a Powerstream
3Amp battery backup controller.

The hatch area.
Again, far from done but it does house the carputer,
start-up/shut-down controller, pioneer stereo, HD Radio tuner, back-up
battery, 10A Powerstream battery backup controller, distribution block,
and fan. This will be covered with a solar panel to
trickle-charge the back-up battery. The T-tops also store in
here. (I didn't finish this with carpeting because the plan
make a more rounded enclosure with fiberglass--if I ever find the time!)
AT3GC-I mobo, 3 hard drives, Startup/Shutdown controller, UPS/Battery charge control, and battery on Plate.
