    LinuxRacr, I'd strongly encourage you to by some means or another verify your laptop will actually run a lilliput. My HP ZE1210 will not (and i'm not talking about a configuration issue).

    can you elaborate what exactly is happening. Is teh laptop just not sending a video signal? or is it something in how the laptop handels output when the laptop screen is closed?

    none of the above. The HP (despite configuration) sends a signal out of range for my lilliput and other small LCD screen (10.4"). The HP can output to CRT and most LCDs fine, but it won't with the powers of god output to the lilliput or intecolor

    Just want to say this project is still on. I decided to go with a different screen though. Here is the screen I ordered:
    XENARC 700IDT™
    7" IN-DASH LCD Monitor w/ VGA & Touch Screen

    http://www.xenarc.com/product/700IDT.html


    Hopefully in a few weeks all will be done. What's this about the HP not outputting enough signal? If so, I guess I'll have to use my work laptop and the extra docking station.

    Not that I know of. When should I expect it? I think Ken said it is supposed to ship this week.

    My screen finally arrived Monday. The Xenarc 700IDT's were on backorder like a mofo. Anyway, here it is: http://www.msprotege.com/forum/showt...96#post1592696

    Here are some pictures of my car fresh out of the body shop:



    The hood is actually a Fiber Images Blue-weaved Kevlar hood, and not your average Carbon Fiber hood. It has to be about 10-15 LBS at most! To see the bright blue weave, you have to see it in person. It NEVER shows up in pictures.
    The new, bigger Front Mount InterCooler is missing from the lower front grille. When I get time, it will be installed.
