TAS, Australia

I wanna put me PSone in the wagon, I'll put the unit under neath the headunit, in the gap below the cigarete lighter and that. Not a perfect fit, but I'll work on that.

I remember when these first came out you could buy them with a pack with a screen and a cigarete lighter power supply. Anyways, I've been looking and can't fid the cigarete lighter power supply thing anywehere (not even eBay.com.au). The unit's power plug thingo on the back says 'DC IN 7.5V', reckon I could pick something up from JayCar to do the trick? I take it that because it's DC and that I won't have to worry about playing with converters or what ever the people with PS2's use...

Next thing is a screen - the screen will definately be in the back as not to distract me (which doesn't take much) and to keep the cops off my back. Since it's only a PSone and I won't get a chance to use it (as I'm driving), I was thinking about getting the largest flip down roof screen, one with lights on it, that way I can remove the factory roof lighting (which is just one pov light in my GLi) and put this to replace it. Anyone done something similar to replace the lgiht? How do you send the video wires up to the roof?

For the audio, I'll start looking for a double din headunit with CD/Tap and AUX in and then eventually connect the audio to the cars stereo. But to be honest I couldn't give a toss if there is no audio as it's prolly just annoy me while i'm driving...

Saw a 12" (10.5" viewable) NEC for $430, that's almost big enough screen to play 2 player on!

Lot of questions there.

Can i ask why you're going for a PSone? I mean.... Gran Turismo 2 was good but the graphics are getting pretty s**t. Surely a PS2 isnt out of your budget? Should fit nicely under passenger seat - inverters arent that bad.

If you need 7.5V DC head to d**k smiths and get a regulated power supply with selectable voltage. Regulated power is a must for these types of devices.

Running wires up to the roof is easy. Just pull all the plastic covers off of a B pillar - can run it under the carpet, up behind covers on B pillar and then under roof lining - all invisible.

i would imagine that the slimline would be DC, and as said in the other thread u can put a modchip in it ;)
i read on a site that the power supply in the ps2 can be converted to dc...
its going from 240VAC to 12VDC i think i read somwhere...
i'll try and get the site for u again ;)
thanks,

mitch

the cars a wagon - i.e. no parcel tray! ;-D

Why a PSone, because I'm buying one of the new slimline PS2's, and that'll leave me with a PSone unit with nothing to do with. No way I'd put a PS2 in the car, what's the point, not like I'd get to use it! rather have it inside the house. main reason why i'm gunna bother putting anything in at all is just to be the first out of my group of mates and that.

Thats the best thing with a PS2 over a PS1, is that you've also got a DVD player! In mine, that gets used more than the PS2 itself. Good for music DVD's and s**t, so you can have something decent to listen to while the people in the back can watch and listen to it.

Then again a PS1 is still beta than nothin.

Me personally i still think they're a real wank value, and you'll get over it pretty quickly.
