Just to get this out there: I've never modded anything with much of anything. I've built bird houses, I mill aluminum at work, and I've modded stock LEGO models to something that wasn't stupid, but that's really it. Right, so, I got a car two days ago: a blue Protege5. I promised myself that with my next car, I would attempt to build an in-dash computer. I have a bad back and leaning forward to place a GPS on my windshield is painful. Also, I don't want a 6CD changer, I want my .mp3 collection and mp3 players have hard drives that are too small or are otherwise too expensive. So, there are a few things I would like to accomplish with this project: Touchscreen (no mouse/keyboard/anything clunky, it needs to look like it was meant to be there) Attaches to the speaker system in my car, obviously GPS Media capabilities- syncs with my desktop as I pull into the driveway through wireless network AM/FM radio, the one attached to the car (how the hell am I going to wire this?) A spare USB port to charge my phone/whatever else needs to charged. Possible trackbutton like on the IBM laptops on the steering wheel Brainstorming, details, and pictures coming later. I need to go to college and work after. EDIT: Alright, I'm back. Now, for challenges. I don't have a welding anything. I also don't have any fancy english wheels or other strangely named tools for modifying things. That means I'm going to nail and screw my way to victory. Probably screw. My powertools include a drill and a dremel powered by electricity and a screwdriver and hammer powered by hand. Sunday, the measuring tape comes out for some preliminary planning.
