Havent updated the carpc in a while so I had some spare time and rebuilt it. Some of you may remember my custom screen install it hasn't changed at all as it works great just rebuilt the PC part and relocated it under the front seat to cut down on wiring the entire length of the car. The new specs are a bit better but since it was mostly free cant complain.

AMD E-450 APU mini itx Asus board
8GB DDR 3
1TB 2.5" media drive
32GB SSD boot drive
160 W Automotive PSU

Installed some new components as well such as a faster connecting GPS adapter, a bluetooth OBDII connector and a few other odds and ends. Haven't got the new camera in the grill yet still working on some things. It boots up in under 7 seconds and actually loads up all the programs quite snappy as opposed to my older system that was just a platter drive.

Here are some pics of the dash for those who haven't seen it

Here is the PC install itself in a super small case. So far no heat issues as I added a few fans, it was odd the E-450 was fanless as it ran hot all the time. I figure if it burns out I will go to a i3. I custom made most of the cables including the ATX to be the exact length needed so there is no excess wiring for max airflow.

Here are some pics of the centrafuse front end, I tether with my phone for data, have tons of music videos, MP3's and whatnot. Garmin GPS and dashcommand for OBD gauges and diagnostics.

Looks good man! Your dash bezel looks good for how many years youve been using it. Looks brand new.

Very sharp! Could you hook up a small camera, like a police dash camera? I always wanted one of those.

I have a few cams that I can record, one is in my grill for auto-x courses and one is on my harness bar right behind my seat. Both record in 1080p

Do you have any insight/knowledge on getting the dashcommand or other gauge package on the pioneer headunits?

I like the work you've done, but I can't help but to ask why you didn't just mod a tablet into the dash. It would have been inexpensive and you could do anything a regular PC in that situation could do. Just tossin that out there. ^_^
