    Thanks for all the help with the printer idea. I think I'll just give it a shot and see what happens. As for the fridge. I had one and it was nice but I don't think it would work for what you want. It takes about an hour to get good and cold. I think they are only meant to be used periodically on trips or whatever because I burnt through 2 of them in my office plugged in all the time. But I had cheap ones too. I also never tried the hot setting I never had anything I needed to heat in it.

    I think your right. It may not be for me. I mostly want it for lunch and drinks at work. It would run of the second battery all day with the car off so I'm assuming it would run the battery down pretty quick.

    had a printer in my pajero for the last 5 years with no probs. first was a cannon bubblejet which came with a 240v to 12 power pack, cut the lead off and stuck strait on to the batt no prob. only changed after 2yrs because the ink got hard to find. next was a cannon portable laptop printer i only changed because the ink was dam expensive and for the last 2 yrs i have had a laser running off an interver..

    Black should have taken longer to freeze?

    Very odd
    froze carts at the same time, plus there is only one color not three.

    A fridge in the car is very handy. A second battery is a must though, if you want to keep it cold when you are out of the car. Its great, crack open a dew, kick back in the back seat and watch a movie or play a video game.

    I would most be worried about the scanner part.

    The florecent┐ bulb could crack from bumps and vibration...

    I like that show, but some of the body work is kind of weak. I have all the episodes in my car, I play em on my trunk monitor to show off the work.
