I bought one of the 10" models last year, and now I've decided to not do the carputer so it's up for sale. Just put it on ebay here. $175 buy it now plus $16 shipping.

New here and setting up my first carpc. I got the 10.4 from mobileseller8 on Ebay, won it in auction for $140 + $40 for shipping. Auction ended Sunday morning and it arrived Tuesday morning from Hong Kong/FedEx! I think that was a GREAT deal and amazingly fast shipping! It is new and it works....
Has anyone seen pictures of one of these opened up and showing the wires? I took it apart because I am moulding it into my dash and I didn't notice that 2 of the plugs are the same but the wire colors are different and I'm not sure which goes where?

Hailrazer, I tried to post the pics, twice today, but the posts aren't showing up. The site says I posted 3 images, all three are the same, hope they don't all show up here, don't want to anger anyone for triple posting! Anyways for now, the wires come out the the back of the lcd panel, one has a black and a green wire and the other has a white and a pink wire. Both use the same type of plug and are inserted on the smaller of the 2 boards inside right next to each other. Thanks for any help you can give.

For those unwilling to undertake as much integration as is pictured in this thread, and who don't want to take the monitor apart, I will outline the mounting method that I have used.
I am using the RAM 6"x2" mount with 1" ball, shown here:
Plus a link and a clamp that fits my application. Any of the 1" ball (B size) RAM mount accessories will work.
With a 6" linkage to a clamp that fits on the side of the center table in my motorhome, the monitor is held rigidly in place, but can be adjusted so that the passenger can see it and it can also be removed in seconds. This stuff is FAR better quality than the stuff I have seen for mounting car stereo equipment in the retail stores.
I attached the 6"x2" plate to the back of the 10.4" monitor, just above the metal slot for the supplied stand, using 3M double-sided automotive trim tape, after cleaning the surfaces with alcohol. That mounting location does not cover any vents, nor does it interfere in any way with the factory stand. It also puts the mounting ball in the center where it provides the best support.

I figured it out, the wires are for the backlight and it's hooked up and working. I finished my dash mod and am going to install the system this weekend.

Great find, thanks for sharing!
