    car computer is due for a revamp already - opinions

    right... basically due to annoying little things i've decided to go one step further with my car PC

    i will be removing the headunit from the equation and running straight to amp....


    this leaves me with a hole to fill, and rather than being boring and putting a cubby hole or cd holder in there i thought i'd do something a little more different.

    so these are the options:

    - blanked off (will require removing material, filling hole and re-trimming) may look a bit bare... lots of work

    - slim line cd/dvd drive fitted into a blanking plate (ie would be a blanking plate with a thin slot cd drive connected to the pc)

    - rather than moving the mfd into a roofpod as per my original plans, move it into the second din slot, again inset into a blanking plate


    if you have any other relavatory ideas then feel free to hit me with them! cheers guys
