    I personally wouldn't consider using an inverter as being finished, as this is a cheats way, but thats just my opinion,.. Do you have any pics???

    Hey kris3, congrats on your system.

    Don't listen to THEMP3KID, using an inverter is fine for 70% of the people out there.

    To wire up your inverter, it would be best to run a wire directly from your battery to power it. Then you could either set up a relay off the acc line of your car (so the inverter turns on and off with the accessories line of your car) or mount a switch in the line, to manually turn the inverter on and off.

    Both setups have there pros and cons, its just down to your personal prefference

    carputer is done just some problems with the lighter plug that i wired to the trunk. Seems like it the fem of the plug is a bit larger than the inverter plug and it loose and turns off my pc when the car bounce. I was thinking to make a solering point at the tip of the plug so it wont get loose.

    Y do you guys think mp3Kid is wrong. take it from me and prolly from him. Sure your inverter works fine now, i guarantee you that down the road, you will start to experience strange things... it might now happen right away, but once the signs start showing up, it will **** u off

    hey kris why do u want to play with AC power in a car .. after all you just require DC power unless ur planing to put a microwave or other home appliance in your car ..??

    Think Ac current in your car just a case of badluck and the AC current runs through your cars body .......! BOOm ! you will see 4th of July a bit too earlier..

    Advice inverter is NOT good!....
