    check the FAQ section and laptop subforum.
    If you need step by step instruction then maybe this hobby is not for you.

    But if you do enough research, I am sure you can do it.

            The touchscreen molded in the dash needs to go to the computer with vga and usb.

            Computer is any computer. A screen does not care what form factor of a pc its vga signal came from and usb is just that, universal. (well global anyways )

            So you can use a laptop, or desktop pc or anything. If you use a laptop, make sure to get one that you wont mind hacking the power button on. One that you can get a dc-dc power supply into (meaning make sure it uses a standard voltage and doesnt eat a gagillion amps). Also make sure that you can get the VGA output enabled even with the lid closed or something.
