Thanks
I have more mods planned.
Including some one offs however money dictates that I slow down a bit.
Some  I want to keep secret until I get it done so I cannot say as much as I want to.
As far as the Car PC goes there is very little I can add to it right now

One idea is to try to integrate street camera since my state has a site that allows you to view them.
It'll be real cool if I can view camera feeds as I drive past or to determine traffic ahead of me based on my GPS coordinates.
I really which I had the skills to do the scripting and pull the feeds to the car.

If you haven't seen it yet, you may want to check out my other thread.
I hope it will inspire others to push the envelop with their installs.

How is the paint that you used on the cladding holding up? Also, what type of paint or paints did you use?

Funny you should ask
I am actually in the process of repainting it right now.
Wile the last time literally took one weekend to get it done, this time I am already 2 weeks iin and not quite halfway there yet..... mostly because of my work schedule.

The paint held up ok for 2 years that I lived in NJ
After moving to MN however, within a few months in the winter and I started seeing spots all over the place.
 Come summer last year I went over it with plasti-dip but that did not least either. It started ripping and tearing too but the plasti-dipped rims stayed fine.
I am guessing because the cladding is soft plastic, the flexing of the cladding attributed to that.

This time around I am sanding and smoothing and adding primer before painting in the hopes that it will adhere better.
Only time will tell .

Some pics can be found on the last page of my other thread here:

I chose windows because of the compatibility to all the applications and hardware I use and plan to add in the coming years. I've tried Linux and Ubuntu in the past and even though they are more stable, I had a heck of a time getting all my hardware to work as well as getting everything communicating together. I must admit that I am much more comfortable with the ins and outs of windows and that has influenced my decision. As far as stability goes, I have had a major crash of the OS only 3 or so times this year  and I'm comfortable with that. It usually boots right back up and runs. If the PC was controlling critical systems where I needed 100% stability, that'll definately be an issue however it is not due to the continuos drain it will have on the battery even while asleep.
I also looked into the raspberry Pi and for my purposes 1 or two units does not have the computing power I need. If I were to build separate modules for all I have the computer doing right now, I'd probably need to have 10 modules for all my tasks and that too is not something I want to have to deal with.
