Default New Dell Mini9 in the Fallen Heroes Car. - 01-27-2009, 06:21 PM

After looking for the past month I've decided on the Dell Mini9. I will be doing some fab work over the next 2-3 weeks on my dash in the Fallen Heroes Car to hold the Mini9. The Mini9 will be replacing the stereo in my dash.

Does anyone have the exact measurements of the mini9 so I can start working on the dash before the mini9 arrives? It is due to arrive on the 16th of Feb.

Thanks!

Pics of my just placed order and a few of my car...

I should have looked before I asked for the exact dimensions. Found them here.

Now it's time to get to work on modding my Dash, I'll take photos and start a build thread as I go.

Very interested in this mate. I did have a CarPC in the car a while ago but got rid of it as the touchscreen stopped working.

I've built 4-5 car pc's in the past myself. But like the idea of an "all in one" solution for the dash. It's going to be an interesting build that's for sure.

Much luck to you. I'm looking forward to see how this turns out.

On another note, I wasn't expecting zebra print interior as I scrolled down.

I need to get an updated photo, the interior is desert camo now. That pic was taken before it became the Fallen Heroes Car.

It's not so unusual, just unexpected. Like the ball I was at where the four top brass were dressed in leopard print suits. But I am glad that it's been changed over to something more appropriate.

My gosh. What an audio system. What is powering that outfit (specs) if you don't mind me asking. 8-)
