                Well I felt really sick until I got the job done...

                Hope you don't mean it's kinda sickening or something... It looks quite Stock-like, I think..., does it? huh

                      I guessed it should be somehing possitive, though I never heard Sick used in that way... always a pleasure to learn some more slang...


                      Power... I used a DC-DC power adapter with a lighter power-jack, if you see the photos on the pdf you'll see i tried to keep the fuse to prevent any harm to the computer due to tension peaks. I just connected the adapter to a possitive cable I took out from the fuse-box of the car... Also a cable for ground connection was provided. The same for the touchscreen....

                      To start/shutdown the laptop I just took out two small cables from the start circuit which I located on the motherboard, via a small drilled hole on the laptop case. I connected these two calbes to a push-button I placed near my lighter, where I can easily turn on/off my pc... Just by pressing the button the computer will shut down safely... no need to do it via the start menu....


                      See the photos... whilst I find the time to compose a proper Howto Document...
