    What exactly are you asking? Whether the stuff you listed will work with a Mini install?

    Have you checked both the FAQ Emporium and the Wiki for info on what you need to install a Mac Mini?

    What you have listed there will get you going - Mini, Carnetix P1900, Mac Pac power cable kit and Xenarc screen.

    aaron,
    hey i was reading over your list of parts and it is pretty close to what i just installed in my car. i just finished my install about a month ago and i learned a lot from the process. i happen to also be a dfw local, so if you need some help with the wiring or just general setup or whatever let me know. PM with any questions. i would love to help.

    It would be cool to meet up and see what we all got going... once I'm done with summer school we should get a little meet together.
