    Heres my list of Products:
    7" Lilliput669GL-Power Consumption: <8 Watts
    ZOTAC H55ITX-C-E
    SSD 50Gb-Power Consumption 2W
    i3 Intel-550 3.2Ghz
    4gb ddr3 - 1.5V
    Fusion Brain V.6
    DVD Drive - External
    OPUS 360W PSU
    Then of course accesories to add on...
    Gps, volume control,OBD II,Tv tuner,TPMS,Touchpad,POL for inputs,Cams

    My question is, What gauge wire do I need for Power from the battery and what size fuses should I use? Im not good on the electric side of things. Im taking out the Factory radio.

    8 ga. should be fine. you need to go by the max fuse rating on the power supply for line fuse rating(any added power wire should be fused within 12" of the battery).

    a fuse is meant to protect against worst case scenario's-- ie: your car getting cut apart in horrific wreck, fuel spilled everywhere, and the power cable cut-- which could cause a fire.. in this case, the fuse would blow once the line draws more then the power supply would ever draw, protecting you from a even-worst-case scenario..
