            Thanks Phobos! The thinkpad is secured with velcro on the back to the wall. I havent thought about putting a case on it, but maybe a black plastic cover to go over the front of it.

              Looks good. How does the FM Modulator go sound quality wise?

              Oh btw, nice fridge!

                It's actually not an fm modulator (oops!) I got confused between the 2 (mainly because it said fm modulator on the case !) But it is in fact an FM Transmitter (or wireless fm modulator). I plugged it directly into the laptop's onboard sound and the quality was pretty bad. I then proceeded to buy a little usb soundcard. Plugged it into the laptop and plugged the transmitter into the usb soundcard and the sound quality was much much better and clear.
                On the stereo there is an "FM 1/2" Button, so I press the button once and I have the normal fm radio stations on the buttons, press it a second time and I have the carputer on button 1, and in near future I will have dvd on button 2 and tv on button 3.
