    I guessed it should be somehing possitive, though I never heard Sick used in that way... always a pleasure to learn some more slang...


    Power... I used a DC-DC power adapter with a lighter power-jack, if you see the photos on the pdf you'll see i tried to keep the fuse to prevent any harm to the computer due to tension peaks. I just connected the adapter to a possitive cable I took out from the fuse-box of the car... Also a cable for ground connection was provided. The same for the touchscreen....

    To start/shutdown the laptop I just took out two small cables from the start circuit which I located on the motherboard, via a small drilled hole on the laptop case. I connected these two calbes to a push-button I placed near my lighter, where I can easily turn on/off my pc... Just by pressing the button the computer will shut down safely... no need to do it via the start menu....


    See the photos... whilst I find the time to compose a proper Howto Document...

    Thanx... though it runs on Diesel (TDI 2.0- 153 PS benchmarked...) the car runs like hell (228 Km/h GPS speed, gambling... with my driving license ) , low fuel consumption...and excellent acceleration... I'm delighted so far

    About the install I'm concerned about some persistent interference over the audio output... Wonder what it may be.... It's some kind of fuzzy sound, maybe due to not having soldered a ground cable coming out of the aux interface...

    I'll have to double check everything over.. this weekend...
