    Hey Ampy, it seems your new to this hobby, so ill point you in the right direction. http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/the-faq-emporium/ It contains ALOT of valuable info, trust me . And if you just mean putting the hardware together then be a bit more specific like evilbunny said and others will find it easier to help you.

    The process is simple...
    You're building a PC that has to meet more restrctive power, heat and size limitations that a vehicle installation presents.

    Just because it's int a vehicle doesn't take away from teh fact that it's still only a PC.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    what is this doing in the fabrication section?

    ampy - maybe you need to spend some SERIOUS time reading some FAQ threads and the n00b section before posting such broad, basic questions in the wrong forum.

    people here generally don't like to spoon feed others, which is essentially what you are asking for.

    specific questions are welcome and encouraged, but asking for spoon feeding, it's not recieved with such grace...lol
