    Items of note:
    I've got Windows 7 Ultimate installed on this PC. I can do one of two things before this goes out. Throw a new windows7 install on there and let you come up with a key or wipe it out altogether for you to put whatever OS you want on it.

    you'll need to provide your own hard drive for the external enclosure. This is NOT for the main hard drive...this is for an additional drive. I used it for my music. There's a lock feature on that drive that I cant seem to locate the key for but truth be told, it was always kind of a PITA. I'd just bypass it.

    I've got the audio cable to get the jacks on the front of the multipanel connected to the mother board but I never bothered. Seamed redundant to me.

    The regulated 12 volt suply is meant for the monitor and will act as a remote line would for an amp. Leave the monitor on and that signal will power and switch on the monitor. And regarding remote amp control....that too is incorporated in the power harness.

    I also incorporated the power for the USB hubs into that harness. It's color coded so you'll be able to tell which connections I'm talking about. Either use it or some kind of AC power plug splitter in conjunction with the regulated 12 volt output for the monitor. Either way, the switched voltage supply's are both set to 6 volt for those two USB hubs. Works like a charm! heck of a PC system. If you have questions...ask away!

    Here's how I had mine installed in case anyone is interested....Forgot to mention there's an external sound card that I can throw in. It didn't occure to me to include it because of the relocated volumn knob. I ahd the volume control installed in the former 12 volt outlet little project. Better solutions? Sure, but the Creative xFi 5.1 is a hell of a card!

        PM replied!

        A few good questions have come up that I thought everyone would benefit from knowing the answers to.
        the Hard drive is a Toshiba MK1652GSX and it is in fact a 5400 RPM spinner

        The WiFi is an on board chipset with an external antenna with enough extension that you can mount it anywhere in you car you want.
        The onboard sound card is a realtech something or other...don't recall. But it does have RCA preamp outputs and they're located right on the PC case. Aditionaly, the Soundblaster xFi5.1 ALSO has preamp outputs on it and sounds wonderful.

        Of important note. this is not just another unfinished project. I had this in my car, working for 9 months before I sold the car. It performed very well! I did not build this PC myself, rather I bought a ready-to-run machine from Mobile Computing Solutions. Here are some interior shots of how the PC is put together

        And...I have an instruction manual for the PC and all it's little internal tid bits....with, i might add, sufficient coffee staining to prove that I actually used it for my install! lol
