Installing Mini Computer
Hello all! Brand new to the forum and have been very impressed with the knowledge in here. My hat is off to everyone!
So far I haven't found anyone trying to install a computer inside their car yet. I'm looking to install a mini-PC into my car (Black 2007 LT Coupe) - and just wanted to open up the floor for any suggestions. I'm a computer guy, so the make/model stuff is my domain and I'll deal with it...a 7 inch touchscreen is what I will most likely do..and $400 is my budget. the problem I'm running into is where exactly to put it. I reviewed a DIY 'remove the dash' but wasn't sure if that will get me all the way. I'm looking to possibly completely remove the stock radio. Furthermore I may need to fabricate custom mounts for this thing to put inside.
With all of that said...has anyone seen someone do this already that I could learn/research from? My last vehicle was a Dodge Dakota and I had it for 10 years...and I completely intend to keep my Cobalt for at least 10 (absolutely love this little guy!) So it's about time to start mod'ing this baby. Engine mods are down the road (header and such) - but for my summer project is the computer.
Okay...I've typed enough. Thanks for reading and thanks for any input...if you really have no clue how to advise me then keep me in mind if you happen to learn something later.
*humble bow to everyone*
