    Sean Clark, from mp3Car, shows us how the various components in the vehicle are wired. Getting power cables through the firewall is one of the more difficult aspects of any install. In this case, drilling through the firewall of the Altima in the wheel well proves to be the best option. Be sure to use plenty of fire-retardant adhesive on these holes once the wires are fed through. Running the power cables to the trunk can be done along the sill of the driver door. Use care when prying the panel loose. A trim removal tool is recommended to prevent scratching of your OEM parts. The backup camera switching wire and accessory turn on wire are also run along the driver door sill. Wires that aren't associated with powering any device are run along the passenger side sill to prevent interference. These include the front speaker wires, an HDMI video cable, a USB touch cable, a USB iPhone cable, a USB OBD-II cable, a USB cable for an aux input, and a microphone 3.5mm audio cable.

The Mini-Box M2-ATX makes the perfect ‘intelligent’ automotive power supply for the computer. Morex International makes a sturdy, yet well ventilated case. Scantool.net’s OBDLink Wi-Fi is the perfect tool to read and interpret engine diagnostic data. The mp3Car Quick Release Kit makes plugging in and unplugging the power cable to your PC a snap, literally. Lilliput has supplied their ever-popular HDMI & DVI 669GL-70NP/C/T touch screen monitor. Front-end software is left up to the experts at Centrafuse. All this seamless integration is made possible by the mp3Car Direct Fit Kit, which incorporates a monitor in any number of dash kits made specifically for your vehicle.
