Hey all. Im hoping that with a bit of help from you guys this can turn into a really good modding project that i look to undertake over the next year or so. I just bought a 1995 N reg ex-parcel force Iveco Daily 35-8. Not going to win any speed awards, its a bit old, but hopefully will be my home come march next year. At the moment its an empty carcass, ready to be ply-lined and kitted out with everything, a shower, toilet, bed, kitchen, and most importantly, my decks and computer. Now obviously power is a consideration, as too is space, but i dont want either of those things to stop me from having my gaming rig full installed in my new home with everything all hooked up and working correctly. So heres the plan... I hope to use my current system (see sig) possibly wiht a new GFX card by the time i leave, but largely unchanged, wiith a 3G router and a wireless card for my internet access depending on where i am. (i play on two internet radio stations, and will be continuing this once i leave for europe). Im interested in SideShow and its possibilities for this application, as well as a decent case-mod solution for the van, with the hope of integrating it into the whole system. 19" syncmaster widescreen monitor mounted on the wall to enjoy it all through. DOes anyone know much about sideshow (vista) and whether this is a plausible solution? I.e. having a smaller interface for the computer installed up front, with full access to the mian computer located in the main living area. Would like to be able to access my MP3s whilst driving, but still be able to use the computer for general stuff (including my travelling blog) once on the road. Main issues to overcome:- Getting the power down on my system to around 400w ( i will be runnign a 1.8KW inverter on two 110Ah leisure batteries) Getting the motherboard and installed components into the van in a nice hidden but integrated way (DVD visible, power button accessible, but case hidden) Finding a way to make the most out of any wireless connection i have by using the bodywork as an aerial?? Integrating the front interface (touchscreen, sideshow, 2nd computer?) Right now its an empty van, panels arriving next month and realistically i have three or four months before ill be sacrificing my computer to the van, so i have plenty of time to plan and source my materials and make sure the plan is sound. Just hopign for som words of advice or any thoughts from anyon who has done this kind of thign before? Can you buy pre-made motherboard trays that have the PCI slots ready made that i could use instead of a traditional case? What compnents coudl i swap from my current setup to help save power and allow me more hours without charging the batteries? any words of advice or pointers greatly appreciated. cheers can't wait to get started on it!!
