I'm typically not one for the super mods, but this is sweet. Nice work.

A cool idea for a carputer would be one that can use either a phones EVDO over bluetooth capabilities, or one that can accpet one of the internet USB keys, or PC cards from wireless carriers.

You are the king. Did you put this up on mp3car.com yet? That really rocks. Very smooth.

Nice work there. If I hadn't seen the other pics and only the final pic I would say that thing looks OEM.

Question though.... when the carputer blue screens and crashes on you does the car crash too?

Beautiful work!! I plan to do the same sometime in the future. Any chance you could give a brief run down of the process, particularly which products you used?

thanks

I think if one is up to it all the techniques and materials are available all over the internet actually. mp3car.com has tons of threads about fiberglassing. But you won't go anywhere if you don't have the skills and patience and time to learn. Clearly this is what you're selling

I personally would pay for that instead of trying myself and probably end up spending even more on what won't look as professional as this
