I have installed a lite version of vista ultimate, boot up time has reduced in comparison to xp pro. CF works fine. aero also looks good. changing ram in a week to 2gb 1066. hope it gets better then. i am on look out for a used or dead double din player to transfer the pc into it. Also need a new antenna for radio.

are you using phone through centrafuse...
if yes which mic are you using?

Dont have the link now but its from downloadarchives. search in operating system section. Didnt get double din case. least offer was 2500 for a supposed to be working model. so picked up two single din body from another place who gave it free. will fix them in the baleno stock frame. hope to complete it in two three days time.

installed the pc and its working. waiting for a new panel in market which can take the lcd.pic below. with this the whole thing can be made one piece. the vga cable will have to be fabricated in small size.

Moderators: request you to please change the thread as "My carputer project" as there is nothing budget about this whole thing now.

that's a marvelous work done
you can fabricate it byyourself

what you need is a small steel sheet cut it along the size of the lcd ,then check the alterations,
then search for a fibre making guy and make a frame for the same ,it will look like an oem thing..

Hi Gigy, If for the front end you need a custom panel let me know -I built a CNC router for myself - I will do a custom screen front design in solidworks and machine it in my cnc using probably ABS or delrin plastic - it will be my contribution for your project -

totally free for U - would you like to accept my gift ?

I love the way people share thing here !

Regards
Irfan
