Well, I've got most of what I need now so I'm going to start building my console today.
Here is what my console will be able to do when it's complete:
Play mp3s
Play DVDs, DivX, any movie
Burn CDs
Print :anitoof:
GPS Navigation
Wireless networking (for internet while on the road and synchronizing in my driveway)
PS2
cupholders

Hopefully I can get the thing to be mostly voice activated, but if not, I'll use the 7" touchscreen LCD to control it all.


Can anybody else think of anything cool I could throw in...I still have some room to put stuff in it. :evillol:

Lol, yeah, this is the only maybe on the list since I can't really think of a reason I'd ever have to use it...I just figured with all the other stuff, why not?

Hrm...I thought I knew how to take out the middle fold-down seat/console thing, but it's welded to the other seats right next to where I was gonna unbolt it.
Can anybody give me guidance on how to take it out?

If your totally taking it out sound like its time to get the sawzall or cutoff wheel out.

You have to take both passenger & sriver seats seats out then the mount that the middle seat is bolted to will come out, atleast that's how it works with a center console.

Whew, OK good, thanks. My wife would kill me if I took a grinder to the inside of my truck.

how about adding a radio card and a TV card? :D
Oh yeah, the TV card definately. I was thinking about the radio card, but I don't think I'll need it. I'll still have my head unit, so the only other thing I could use it for would be to pick up radio to record it. But if I really wanted a song that bad, I would have pulled over and downloaded it already :anitoof:

Needless to say I've been reading up a LOT on carputers. One guy had his voice activation working by requiring a keyword to tell the voice activation to "listen" (it's always "listening", but doesn't carry out commands until he says the magic word).
Lol, you'll probably laugh at me, but I was going to call it K.I.T. :anitoof: (Komputer in Truck) like Knightrider, and be like "KIT, Navigation" or "KIT, Internet". It's gonna be pimp if I get it to work....mwahahaha. :rocking:

I will just say this....fiberglass is a bitch if you're doing a big piece of something, like a whole fuckin console...it's expensive too.
My whole house smells like a nail salon, and last night the fiberglass resin ate through the gloves I was wearing and now my thumb has no fingerprint.
Lol, it's coming along nicely though. I hope to be done with all the fiberglass, bondo, and sanding by the end of this coming weekend.

awww shit, just throw a direct tv satellite on top...
I was lookin at those and thought about it, but they are pretty ugly, and I've got like 350 channels in the house so I really couldn't justify it. :insane:
